Dr. Jolene “Jo” Granger is a psychologist that has agreed to hear the dying confession of serial killer Harvey Lee Smith, though she knows better than to let that monster into her head and has vowed to keep him out.  Harvey has secrets that he is ready to share about victims whose bodies were never found and about an apprentice that is continuing Harvey’s grisly work.

Harvey’s apprentice buries his victims alive just like Harvey did, relishing their screams as the earth comes down on top of them.  Harvey’s apprentice is determined to give Harvey, the only father he ever knew, one final gift, the most perfect kill of all.

Everything about this case is unnerving Jo.  From Harvey’s obsession with her to the fact she is now working alongside her ex-husband Texas Ranger, Brody Winchester.  Harvey’s apprentice is growing bolder every day and more vicious.  The trail of graves is leading them to a place no one expects and to a very terrifying truth. 

This is one story that will take you on a psychological ride that is sure to mess with reader’s minds.  The story pulls the reader into the story and doesn’t let go until the very last page.  With all the twist and turns and suspects that show up in the story it is sure to keep readers guessing until the final showdown.  For readers that love psychological thrillers this is one not to miss. 

I give this one 5 red roses
