On a busy Boston pathway, a man is stabbed to death in the midst of a crowd of tourists, resulting in a frenzy of cell phone photographs and leaving Detective Jake Brogan with an unusual problem: too many witnesses.
Between all those cell phone snapshots and the surveillance cameras surrounding the area, solving the case should have been a cinch, but the investigation takes a surprising turn, revealing unexpected treachery.

Meanwhile, wedding preparations are keeping Jane Ryland busy; she’ll be maid of honor for her sister, Melissa, and the groom’s young daughter, Gracie, will be the flower girl. There’s just one complication: Gracie has disappeared, apparently abducted by her stepfather, leaving her family fearing for her safety.

Jane is invited to Channel 2 for a job interview, but when the news director has no team available for a breaking story, she is given an opportunity to freelance for the station and heads to Curley Park to gather facts. Once there, she meets Bobby Land, a young would-be photographer who insists he has photos of the stabbing. Between his photographs and her on-scene video, will they be able to identify the person responsible for stabbing the unidentified man?

With so many witnesses and all the technology, both the detective and the reporter might believe the case will be wrapped up quickly. But has anyone seen what really took place? And just what happened the night Gracie wasn’t missing?

Crisp writing and well-developed characters in this fourth Jane Ryland tale ratchet up the fast-paced story while richly-drawn descriptions provide readers with an authentic sense of place. The intricately-woven mystery spins out in pulse-pounding suspense guaranteed to keep readers riveted to the edge of their seats until the final reveal and a surprise ending . . . or two.

Highly recommended. ( )
