When the dive team is called in to recover a body from a submerged car, they aren’t prepared to find an encrypted laptop–or an unsettling connection between investigator Adam Campbell and the dead accountant.
Adam turns to his friend Dr. Sabrina Fleming–a professor at the local university with unparalleled computer security and forensics skills–to recover the files from the laptop. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier the investigation becomes. When evidence uncovers a human trafficking ring and implicates members of Adam’s own family, he and Sabrina will have to risk everything to solve the case.
The truth could set hundreds free–but someone is willing to do whatever it takes to silence anyone who threatens to reveal their secrets. Award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn invites readers back to Carrington, North Carolina, where everything is not as it seems and sinister elements lurk behind the idyllic façade.
I enjoyed the first book but didn’t hold out hope for liking this book more since sometimes the first book in the series is wonderful and mostly perfect but the next isn’t as good or better. That did not happen in this series, thus the second book was even better! “Seeing” characters from the first book was nice and getting to read Adam’s and Sabrina’s story and finding out more about their unique relationship that we got a glimpse of In Beneath The Surface. There are so many things that happened in this book that were unexpected. The secrets about both Adam’s and Sabrina’s families were shocking, crazy, sad, and scary. The suspense tied up nicely though it was one bumpy ride to get there, and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
