Bree Taggart, our protagonist, after 25 years is still battling the memories of when her father killed her mother and then killed himself. Her younger sister had been murdered and she is now the guardian of her niece and nephew. In SEE HER DIE we find Bree as a new sheriff.
Bree is called to a campground because a young woman, Alyssa, tells her that she heard a gunshot, and her friend was killed. Alyssa is a homeless teenager who has been squatting in one of the cabins in the campground. She insists that she saw her friend being killed but there is no shooter, there is no body, no blood, nothing that would show that there was a murder.
Bree contacts her friend and former deputy, Matt Flynn. Along with his K-9 dog. In the search, they find a body in Grey Lake. The body is that of a man, he can not be identified because he was shot and beaten about the face. It is not the girl that they are looking for. Additional bodies turn up of missing young men in the lake which complicates the investigation. Alyssa disappears which makes the investigation harder. Bree and Matt race against time to find Alyssa before she becomes the next victim.
This my second book by Melinda Leigh, the first being CROSS HER HEART which is the first in the Bree Taggart series. I loved them both, the author writes an incredibly readable series that keeps the reader turning those pages. The characters are believable but flawed. They all have their secrets. Bree trying to be a good mother to her niece and nephew, Matt trying to overcome a shooting that left him jobless. I look forward to reading more in this series. I highly recommend this series!
Sheriff Bree Taggert is both hunter and hunted in #1 Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh’s blood-freezing thriller of murder, rage, and revenge.
New sheriff Bree Taggert is called to a shooting in a campground shuttered for the winter. But she arrives to find a perplexing crime. There is no shooter, no victim, and no blood. No one but Bree believes the sole witness, Alyssa, a homeless teenager who insists she saw her friend shot.
Bree calls in former deputy Matt Flynn and his K-9 to track the killer and search for Alyssa’s friend. They discover the battered corpse of a missing university student under the ice in Grey Lake--but it’s not the victim they were looking for.
When two more students go missing and additional bodies turn up, Bree must find the link between the victims. She knows only one thing for certain: the murders are fueled by rage. When Alyssa disappears, Bree must race against time to find her before her witness becomes another victim.
