Book 3 in the Bulletproof series (2011)
Claire O’Toole hasn’t exactly had the easiest life. Her mother, Alana, went missing fifteen years ago. That was big news in Pineview, Montana, the kind of town where nothing much ever happens. Another complication is Isaac Morgan, her ex-lover who abandoned her pretty shabbily ten years ago. Then, last year, Claire’s husband, David, died in a freak accident — after launching his own investigation into Alana’s disappearance.
Is Alana dead? Or did she simply abandon her husband and daughters? Claire’s determined to find out — and her former boyfriend, Isaac Morgan, wants to help. Although their relationship didn’t end well, he still has feelings for her. And yet it isn’t until he starts to suspect David’s death wasn’t an accident that he’s drawn back into her life. Isaac believes Alana’s disappearance and David’s death are somehow connected.
Together, Claire and Isaac search for answers to the questions that have haunted Pineview all this time. But as they soon discover, someone’s prepared to kill so those answers won’t be found . . . But when they start uncovering answers, it’s clear that someone out there wants them to leave well enough alone, and that someone is prepared to keep those answers from coming out at any cost.
