There are no secrets in a small town—until someone has one worth dying for.
Local cop Stevie Taylor and police chief Zane Duncan have startling new proof that a deadly street drug is expanding its poisonous grip on their small town: a skull found on the banks of the Rogue River has two bullet holes in the back. Still caught up in the excitement of their new relationship, Stevie and Zane are determined to track down the drug’s source before more lives in Solitude, Oregon, are lost.
Then one death strikes especially close to home, leading to heartache and confusion for Stevie. As the drug distributers strike hard and the body count in Solitude grows higher, she and Zane must hunt down the deadly killer—but are they the predators, or the prey?

Okay, my fascination with this 4-novella series has obviously ended. As with the second one, the pace was too slow, the heroine has suffered a small character transplant from the first story, and there was just nothing in this one making me go wow.
The twist that should've been unexpected (what exactly happened to Stevie's father) wasn't unexpected at all. I've been waiting for the reveal since novella number one. And now I'm waiting to see if the last twist in this series (the mastermind behind the drug problem in Solitude) is the one I'm suspecting - the matriarch.
Please, let me be wrong. Surprise me, please.
