Captain Patti O’Shay, a by-the-books cop, is assigned to the case. But with the evidence lost to time and the elements, the heinous incident goes unsolved. The perpetrator, known only as “The Handyman,” remains at large.
Two years later Patti is still haunted by her own personal tragedy—her husband and fellow police captain was murdered in the post-storm chaos. But when a female victim missing her right hand is unearthed, Patti prepares to return to The Handyman investigation. She is unprepared, however, for what she finds at the crime scene—the victim’s bones beside her husband’s police badge.
Casting aside all the rules, Patti is fearless in her quest to find the truth…because if she isn’t, she could become The Handyman’s last known victim.

But I didn’t find it to be her best. I prefered Killer Takes All to this one.
I found that it dragged a little in some parts. It wasn’t as exciting and suspenseful for me like her other novels. The synopsis has you focusing on Patti, but the story doesn’t really focus on one main character – more like several characters.
As for ‘The Handyman’, I was way off; didn’t even suspect. Had a few people in mind, but this one didn’t even come close. I liked that.
I felt bad for Yvette, and worse for Patti. Can’t wait for the next novel!
