Mackayla's daughter was abducted and murdered. Her husband blamed her and their marriage fell apart. She became a forensic artist helping parents find their missing children. Gabe's family was in one of the planes that hit the twin towers on 9/11. Both his wife and daughter were killed. Since then his life has been his job as an FBI profiler. Mackayla and Gabe meet because of a case in which three young women are killed and buried in the yard of a U.S. Senator. Both of them think that the Senator and his son are involved but they have to find solid evidence. Gabe witnesses Mackayla's strong faith and realizes that his has fallen by the wayside. With their jobs and the current case drawing them apart, Gabe tries to find his way back to God and back to Mackayla.
This is the second book of Ms. Patrick's 'Wounded Heroes series'. Both of the main characters have dealt with pain and sadness in their lives. Each has dealt with it in a different way though. Mackayla was drawn closer to God, but Gabe drifted away. Through the book Gabe begins to realize his need for a comforting and loving God. I enjoyed the Biblical reference of the three Hebrew young men who were thrown in the fire. It helped Gabe when Mackayla explained that God was with the three men and He was with her during her time of sorrow. It was nice to see Sean and Kory from "Kill Shot" making an appearance in this one. There were no lapses in the story and it flows seamlessly from beginning to end. I for one will be looking forward to the next book in the series. Ms. Patrick is a Christian fiction author definitely worth reading.
