Special Agent Jack Tanner left the FBI to become a detective in Montana. During a search and rescue mission, he comes across a body in the national forest. He is determined to find the killer, even if he has to work with his ex-girlfriend, US Forest Service Special Agent Terra Connors.
Terra discovers the victim had ties to a dangerous person who is trafficking artifacts. As the duo investigates, the investigation takes a deadly turn and it hits too close to home. Terra feels that she doesn't have the courage to face what she needs to do next. However, Jack is determined to protect Terra at all costs. He felt that he has let her down before and he isn't willing to do it again.
I thought the novel was an interesting read with a few twists and turns. I didn't find that the novel was at the edge of my seat suspenseful even though it had a few unexpected twists. I felt like there was a few things that weren't really resolved and it seems the second book in the series are new characters. While the characters were interesting, I felt like they were a bit dull for my tastes. I would still be open to reading other books by the author.
