Fifteen-year-old Rachael Donahue-abandoned by society, raised in foster homes, and violently unapproachable-has been discovered, dead, at the bottom of a stairwell at Firebird, the secure facility for juvenile offenders in Cleveland. For Maggie and Jack, her death comes with a disturbing twist-the girl may have been involved with a much older man. But Rachael’s not the only resident at the center to come to a dead end. Firebird’s ten-year-old wild child has overdosed in the infirmary-back-to-back tragedies that appear to be terrible accidents. As a forensic investigator, Maggie knows appearances can be deceiving. And Jack knows all about deceit. That’s why they both suspect a cold-blooded murderer is carrying out a deadly agenda. As Maggie’s ex-husband gets nearer to uncovering the secrets that Maggie and Jack must hide, it becomes increasingly difficult for them to protect a new vulnerable victim from a killer with unfathomable demons.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Kirsten Potter gives a thrilling performance in a voice steeped in the noir-style of an old-school murder mystery. Her strong, clear voice deftly navigates the listener through this dark thriller’s tough subject matter, including child abuse, sexual assault, imprisonment, and murder at a center for criminal children. Potter captures the emotional tones of both frustrated employees struggling to help children who could just as easily murder them and often sarcastic hardened detectives. Subtle black humor comes through as the listener comes to know the secrets the detectives keep to themselves. There’s never a dull moment.” AudioFile
A well-plotted and -paced thriller with a pair of intriguing protagonists.” Booklist
“Bestseller Black’s well-crafted fourth thriller featuring forensic expert Maggie Gardiner…Black keeps the suspense high throughout.” Publishers Weekly
