A shallow grave exposes deadly secrets as bestselling author Loreth Anne White brings her thrilling series of romantic suspense to its shocking conclusion…
Disgraced ex-cop Angie Pallorino is determined to make a new start for herself as a private investigator. But first, she and her lover, newly promoted homicide detective James Maddocks, attempt a quiet getaway to rekindle a romance struggling in the shadows of their careers. The peace doesn’t last long when human skeletal remains are found in a nearby mossy grove.
This decades-old mystery is just what Angie needs to establish her new career—even as it thrusts her and Maddocks back into the media spotlight, once again endangering their tenuous relationship.
Then, when Angie’s inquiry into the old crime intersects with a cold case from her own policing past—one that a detective on Maddocks’s new team is working—the investigation takes a startling twist. It puts more than Angie’s last shot at redemption and a future with Maddocks at risk. The mystery of the girl in the moss could kill her.
The Girl in The Moss starts out with a peaceful fishing trip that ends with a horrifying murder seen from the eyes of the victim.
And the action doesn’t stop there!
Angie Pallorino and her new fiancée, James Maddocks, escapes the stress of the past few months by stealing a quiet getaway on northern Vancouver Island. It blows up in their faces when human remains are found in a bed of moss deep in the rainforest.
Once more they face the onslaught of an unforgiving press. It causes Angie to lose her new P.I. job and possibly Maddocks.
When a chance to work the case comes up in the form of a retired Superior Court Judge, Angie takes it hoping to redeem her career and moreover, to prove herself worthy of Maddocks.
As a town’s secrets come to light and Angie’s life is endangered she begins to wonder if she will live long enough to uncover the truth and tell Maddocks how much she loves him.
This is a page-turning suspense I had a hard time to set down! My only regret is that the series is over. This could easily carry into future stories. I’d like to learn more about Holgerson, Maddocks and his new police program, and whether Angie ever gets her own P.I. firm.
Don’t let this series die!
