AFTER TEN YEARS AWAY, DETECTIVE SERGEANT CHRISTIAN ANDERSON MUST RETURN TO HIS HOMETOWN. AS THE TOWN’S BURIED SECRETS COME TO THE SURFACE, IS HE PREPARED FOR WHAT HE WILL DISCOVER?
What should have been a typical February morning changed the instant he answered the phone. It was Gemma. His one true friend and the only thing that kept him connected to Cedar Lake. Her older sister, Cassidy, vanished from the front steps of a rehab center two days ago and no one has seen or heard from her since. Adamant something terrible has happened, Gemma pleads for DS Anderson’s help.
In order to understand Cassidy's present-day life, DS Anderson must first delve into her past. And the deeper he digs he exposes a dormant secret that connects them all. With the secret out, several suspects emerge, each all too eager to point the finger the other way.
Running out of time, can DS Anderson not only save a lost soul, but can he unravel another mystery that has haunted him the past twenty-four years?
A fast-paced and well-plotted thriller. Brees deftly balances multiple mysteries, suspects, and motives in an enjoyable read.

If you are looking for a book that has mystery, deceit, secrets, danger, heartache, and revenge... then this book is for you. It is all those things and so much more.
Rainbow Book Reviews
This is a well-written if somewhat unusual book. The story set in the present day is a 1930's style noir detective-story pulp fiction dressed up with a few Canadian LGTBQ characters.
