On the edge of the Everglades, an eerie crime scene sets off an investigation that sends two agents deep into a world of corrupted faith, greed and deadly secrets. A ritualistic murder on the side of a remote road brings in the Florida state police. Special Agent Amy Larson has never seen worse, and there are indications that this killing could be just the beginning. The crime draws the attention of the FBI in the form of Special Agent Hunter Forrest, a man with insider knowledge of how violent cults operate, and a man who might never be able to escape his own past. The rural community is devastated by the death in their midst, but people know more than they are saying. As Amy and Hunter join forces, every lead takes them further into the twisted beliefs of a dangerous group that will stop at nothing to see their will done. Doomsday preppers and small-town secrets collide in this sultry, twisty page-turning thriller.

Booklist Review: "When a heart attack takes her Florida Department of Law Enforcement partner John Schultz out of commission, Special Agent Amy Larson joins forces with FBI Agent Hunter Forrest to solve the ritualistic murder of a young woman. All signs indicate an active cult deep in the heart of the Everglades and clues at the crime scene point to more murders to come. The locals claim to know nothing, but someone knows more than they're saying. Is there a connection to one of the many local churches? What about the missing woman who's been hiding from someone or something at the old motel? Hunter's inside knowledge of how cults operate and Amy's crime scene sketches give them a starting point, but the twisted mix of faith, greed, and corruption isn't going to be easy to decode and stop. As the case intensifies, so does the attraction between Amy and Hunter. Fans of Allison Brennan's romantic suspense will enjoy this hot new stand-alone from veteran author Graham (Dreaming Death, 2020)."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this uneven suspense novel from bestseller Graham (The Rising with Jon Land), 29-year-old special agent Amy Larson of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and John Schultz, her FDLE partner of two years, look into a young woman's ritualistic murder at a remote site on the edge of the Everglades. Amy's knack for making sketches at crime scenes that have proved useful has earned her the respect of 50-year-old John, a career FDLE agent. The case, one that involves several similar murders, attracts the attention of FBI special agent Hunter Forrest, who specializes in ritualistic killings, extremists, and the occult. When a heart attack sidelines John, Amy joins forces with Hunter to investigate the odd murders, and her sketches lead the agents to a chilling cult. The pair's vivid trek through rural Florida and the growing romantic heat between them help make up for the familiar plot and routine dialogue. Graham's first standalone hardcover in more than 10 years entertains despite its flaws. Agent: Lucy Childs, Aaron M. Priest Literary Agency. (Mar.)"
