As he is relentlessly harassed for what he might know–endangering both his life and his business—Sutherland must convince everyone that he knows nothing. Unfortunately, no one believes him.As a desperate Sutherland collaborates with an ambitious reporter and his calculating sister in a pursuit strewn with murder victims, he soon finds out that trusting the wrong person can lead to dire consequences.

WHAT A GREAT BOOK!
Suspense novels are my favorite, the rush you get when you cannot read the page fast enough.
This book got my blood racing.
It takes you back 15yrs into a murder mystery, with many suspects. I really liked how the author pulled you into each and every one, you lived their triumphs as well as their fears.
As the story progressed, you think you have it figured out, and WHAM!!!! Did not see that coming.
This was the first novel for my by Gordon McIntosh and I cannot wait until I get another of his novels.
If you love Mystery Novels, get your hands on this one, you won't regret it.
My only regret, with life so crazy, I literally had to find a place to hide in order to read!!!
If you have any time in your busy life, and love a good suspense...get this book!!
Thanks for stopping by,
