#Mystery, #Suspense,

Criminal psychologist Erin Larson's dreams of a successful career come to a screeching halt when she nearly loses her own life in a boating accident on Puget Sound and then learns that her mother tried to commit suicide. She leaves her job as a criminal psychologist to care for her mother in Montana. At least she is able to produce her podcast, which focuses on solving missing persons cold cases.


Nathan Campbell's father was investigating such a case when he was shot, and now Nathan needs to enlist Erin's help to solve the case. She's good at what she does. The only problem? She's his ex.


As the two dig deeper, it becomes clear that they, too, are being targeted--and that the answers to their questions are buried deep within the past Erin struggles to explain and longs to forget.


The race is on for the truth in this gripping and complex tale of suspense, intrigue, and murder from USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard.

Puget Sound


For a few hours every Saturday morning, Erin Larson could forget that evil existed.


And usually, only on the water.


She dipped the double-bladed paddle into the sea, then again on the other side—left, right, left, right, left, right—alternating strokes in a fluid motion to propel her kayak across the blue depths. Her friend Carissa Edwards paddled close behind.


Left, right. Left, right. Left, right.


On the water she was close to nature and far from the chaos and noise of the city even though she and Carissa paddled along the shoreline and could see the cityscape in the distance. The quiet calmed her mind and heart. The rhythmic paddling mesmerized her. The exertion exhilarated her. Cleansed her of the stress and anxiety acquired after a week of forced labor.


Okay, that wasn’t fair. Her suffering certainly wasn’t physical in nature.


Water. Mountains. Sky. She took in the sights and once again . . . forgot.


Beautiful snowcapped Mount Baker—the Great White Watcher—loomed large in the distance to the east.


Left, right. Left, right. Left, right.


The slosh of paddles along with the small waves lapping against her boat soothed her and were the only sounds except for seagulls laughing above her—ha, ha, ha.


To the west, the impressive Olympic Mountains begged for attention. Erin couldn’t wait for Mom to join her out here, when she finally convinced her to move.


A salty ocean breeze wafted over her as peace and beauty surrounded her.


She couldn’t ask for more.


She shouldn’t ask for more.


But God . . . I need answers.


Carissa caught up with Erin and paddled next to her kayak. “Thanks for coming with me today. I needed this.”


“The exercise or the scenery?” Erin had just broken a sweat despite the early morning cool.


“How about a little of both. And the company makes all the difference, I’m not going to lie.”


“Yeah,” Erin answered with reluctance. She and Carissa had an understanding between them. On their kayaking excursions, peace and quiet were supposed to reign.


“By the way, I listened to your podcast last night,” Carissa said.


Maybe she’d forgotten their unspoken pact.
