Hardbitten former FBI agent Brigid Quinn has been forced to return to her Florida hometown to answer two very different calls for help. One is from her mother, summoning her to her ill father's hospital bed; the other is from Laura Coleman, the protegé/colleague who helped her catch the Highway 66 serial killer. With so much at stake, Brigid has to draw on every bit of skill, craft, and grit she possesses - especially when danger may be closer to home than she realizes.

So glad we have this local author. I can't wait for the next Quinn book. Love her stories. Easy to read, though tough stuff in spots, Becky gets it right.

This book is an average to sub average effort, that I found to be engaging at times but never compelling. The writing style is a bit lazy, certainly never too descriptive and the two story lines failed to propel, or, accentuate the story, nor my enjoyment.

The dual plot lines (ailing father, and death-row execution mystery) do not weave together as elegantly or with the complementarity that one might hope, but Masterman is still a master storyteller and Brigid Quinn a refreshing presence in the genre.

Loved the original Brigid Quinn novel... this one was quite disappointing. It lacked in many things, maybe especially the original southwest setting... also 'family angst' is available in too many books- this story did not benefit from the ailing father at all!

After 65 pages gave up--too wordy. Couldn't figure out what all the fuss is about this book.
