BOOK REVIEW: Four best friends. And then one went missing..... In college, Griffin McCray and his three best friends had their lives planned out. Griffin and Luke Gallagher would join the Baltimore Police Department, Declan Grey would head to the FBI, and Parker Mitchell would study to become a crime scene analyst. But then Luke vanished before graduation and their world--and friendships--crumbled.
Now years later, Griffin has left the police and his friendships behind. Still trying to forget a case that went bad when he was a SWAT team sniper, he's living a quiet life as a park ranger at Gettysburg. Quiet until skeletal remains are uncovered near Little Round Top--and they aren't Civil War-era.
Griffin just wants the case to go away, but charming forensic anthropologist Finley Scott discovers evidence pointing to the work of an expert sniper. When FBI agent Declan Grey steps in to take over the case, past and present collide. Griffin soon realizes that he'll need to confront some of the darkest days of his life if he--and those he cares about--are going to escape a downward spiral of crime, danger, and murder.
MY REVIEW: This is the first book in Dani Pettrey's second mystery series, Chesapeake Valor. I enjoyed the book, but I don't think this series will be as good as her first one.
The mystery line was very well-done in my opinion--interesting and full of twists. The remains of a young woman, buried within the last year, are found in the woods. As the team works to identify the victim, they realize the killer is watching them and determined to keep them from discovering who she is. It was interesting to see how they finally figured out who the victim was and why she had been killed. And of course, finding her killer (which, by the way, you won't be able to figure out).
