The search for a missing child leads a courageous railway cop down a twisted trail of murder. It's been five months since Special Agent Sydney Parnell survived a violent confrontation with a gang of brutal thugs, an encounter that left her physically and emotionally scarred. Deep down, Sydney fears she isn't ready for another investigation. But when a woman is murdered on the train tracks and a child goes missing, she knows she's the only one who can lead the hunt for the killer. While Denver police and the FBI chase down blind alleys, Sydney focuses on a single cryptic clue left behind at the crime scene--one that will send her down a path of greed, violence, and long-ago love. With Denver beset by a series of monsoonlike thunderstorms that threaten to flood the city, Sydney and her K9 partner, Clyde, must wade through a murky trail of murder that stretches back thirty years--all to rescue a child...and catch a killer with a long memory and an insatiable appetite for destruction.

Wow! I did not think it would be possible to improve on her first book....but I was wrong! Barbara Nickless has "hit it further out of the park". Love this heroine and all of the twists and turns of this plot that explodes to conclusion. Looking forward to more Sydney and Clyde.
