Nearly Boswell is trying to get over the fact that a serial killer was trying to frame her for murder, she is trying to get used to the idea that her boyfriend is a narc and she is trying to move on in life by interning at the local forensic lab. The problem is that everyone else will not let Nearly move on, and the past keeps coming back to interfere in her life. Nearly uses her investigative mind to solve the murder of a girl from her trailer park and in the process she finds out more about her past.
This is a fast paced intense thriller. The main character is smart and fun to cheer for, even if at times she does some things that are illegal. At first is doesn’t seem like you need to have read the first book in the series, but towards the end it would be very confusing if you hadn’t. The mature content is off page sex and the violence includes dismemberment. The content makes it so it can't go in a middle school.
