meet Jessie Cole.
In this page-turner of a thriller by bestselling author T.R. Ragan, unlikely partners PI Jessie Cole and crime reporter Ben Morrison search for clues to a mystery buried in their own pasts—only to discover that sometimes the truth is better off buried.
Ten years ago, PI Jessie Cole and reporter Ben Morrison each suffered a tragedy that changed their lives—and now these two strangers are about to share a nightmare.
For Jessie, who makes her living finding missing persons, no case has consumed her more than the disappearance of her younger sister, Sophie. But left alone to raise Sophie’s daughter, she realizes that solving the case has become an unhealthy obsession.
For Ben, a horrific car accident resulted in scars both physical and emotional—and amnesia that has made his life a mystery. But curiously, out of his shattered memories, there’s one person he recognizes without a doubt: Jessie’s sister. He just doesn’t know why. Yet.
But Sophie isn’t the only phantom drawing Jessie and Ben together. An elusive serial murderer known as the Heartless Killer has reemerged from the shadows. His next move will cut even deeper into Jessie’s worst fears. And for Ben, what happens this time is going to be unforgettable.
As a teenager, Lizzy Gardner was terrorized by a serial killer, an ordeal that haunted her for more than a decade before the maniac was finally stopped. Now she's a Sacramento private investigator who does her best to help others protect themselves while she tries to forget the horror of her past. In each of T.R. Ragan's Lizzy Gardner novels, the PI and her two young assistants, Hayley and Jessica, take on cases that no one else will touch. As they look for clues and chase criminals, Lizzy and her team cross paths with some of the darkest and most unsavory beings on Earth.
