Set in South Georgia, this is not a comforting tale. The discovery of the body of a young woman in the icy waters of Lake Grant is a first taken for a suicide, but Detective Lena Adams quickly comes to believe that it is in fact murder. Her boss Frank Wallace wants it to be suicide, but in the short time since Frank had taken over from Lena's mentor Jeffrey, things had slipped alarmingly. Lena is disenchanted with her job and her life. Then Frank gives Lena the news that Medical Examiner Sara Linton is back visiting for Thanksgiving.
There is much history between the two women and when the main suspect in the murder of Allison Spooner asks to see Sara she unwillingly becomes involved in the case.
Whilst this is a good mystery, I didn't really care for any of the characters, but it is a good story, well plotted with plenty of surprises. ----- Lizzie Hayes
