I devoured this book in just over a day!
“Hope in God is a powerful thing. It is the bridge to faith.”
This third book of the series is much more of a mental puzzle. The same team is together again, with Alex and Logan still trying to deny feelings for each other and both are progressing in their Christian walk. “God will give you beauty for ashes, Alex. But we have to give Him the ashes.”
They start to unravel the case of a missing woman who resembles Alex, resulting in her capture. Ms. Mehl puts a twist on things when the setting is an abandoned amusement park and a villain who seems kind and keeps his victims alive. As the clues mount up, it is questionable if the team can get to the victims in time. We also see Logan with some health issues that make him unable to be fully involved, but he relies on God and prayer.
I like the way the team works together, considering themselves a family.
Ms. Mehl gives us suspense, danger and the convoluted mind of a criminal. As always, she gives hope in her stories. “The Bible was so clear. Evil comes to kill, steal and destroy, God gives life.”
Do not miss this unusual and insightful tale from a highly capable author.

The closer she comes to the truth, the deadlier her chase gets.
FBI behavioral analyst Alex Donovan and her colleague Logan Hart have been called upon to write a profile for a missing woman, but a little digging quickly turns up more disappearances in Virginia with the same physical description.
Alex is in a race against the clock to rescue the missing victims, so when the UNSUB makes demands of her in exchange for information, Alex takes the bait. But when her life is put in jeopardy, Logan must do whatever it takes to track them down before time runs out.
Alex works to think one step ahead of the suspect, but the more Logan and the BAU learn about the serial kidnapper, the more they fear Alex may not make it out alive.
