When she was just ten years old, Peggy Weaver could do nothing but run for her life as her best friend Samantha was abducted while they were riding bikes through their small hometown in Tennessee. Samantha was eventually returned home, alive but with her childhood and innocence brutally stripped away. Samantha never spoke to anyone—not even Peggy—about what had happened, and her kidnapper was never caught.
Twenty-five years later, FBI Special Agent Peggy Weaver has never forgiven herself for not doing more to save her friend from her terrifying ordeal. So when pornographic pictures of ten-year-old Samantha turn up as evidence in a case Peggy’s working on, she instantly recognizes the photos as a message from a man who never paid for what he did. But this time, Peggy won’t stop running until she sees that justice is done…
With his riveting debut, The Shadow Catchers, Thomas Lakeman proved himself to be one of the best new crime writers, and he follows that up with Chillwater Cove, a heart-stopping sequel in his Mike Yeager and Peggy Weaver series. Loyalties may run deep but secrets can run even deeper...
