This is the second book in the Ash series. I did not read the first book but did not have any difficulty getting into the storyline.
Ash is a strong and resilient protagonist who commands the stage in this well developed tale of violence in society. She has a violent history in her past when she was attacked and raped which she is trying to forget.
When Ash arrives in Florida she finds herself being stalked by an unruly and troubled teen. She is fighting her own demons but finds the strength and courage to help a family in need after their oldest son is kidnapped. The author has created a well crafted story with twists and turns that keep the reader guessing until the satisfying ending.
The violence depicted in this story is frighteningly real and hits close to home with the troubled youth in our society today. This was an enjoyable read!
