NEVER HAPPEN TO YOU by Christy Barritt, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

A Chilling Cold Case Suspense and Mystery
 (True Crime Junkies #3)

"No roads. No neighbors. No stores. No hope."

Women were still disappearing off Alaska's Dalton Highway. Even as the Arctic Circle Murder Club was assembling for their monthly meeting, news of an eighth woman was beginning to make headlines, primarily because her family had the resources to draw full media attention. Their odd grouping of crime podcast enthusiasts was morphing into an investigative team of sorts, while pushing Duke McAllister and Andi Slade's personal agendas to the back burner. Private investors and prime time interviews might bring the group some welcomed revenue, but it wouldn't find Duke's missing fiancee or bring Andi closer to exposing a dangerous criminal enterprise which had destroyed her livelihood and threatened her life. Plus, the more time Andi and Duke spent together . . . Ultimately what the group does uncover, is unlike anything they expected to find. Times two.

"Anxiety and apprehension . . . could control a person. That wasn't the life Andi wanted to live . . . If tragedy could happen to her, then hope could also."

Extremely well plotted, the author takes her readers on a high speed chase for justice while hiding stories within stories, clues within clues, and characters within characters. The sweetest part? Watching Andi and Duke tighten their heartstrings.

I love this series! Exclamation point!

BackCover Blurb:
Crime is something that happens to strangers. Until it’s not.

As women continue to vanish in Alaska’s Far North, the Arctic Circle Murder Club meets again to combine their skills and search for the truth. Only the evidence isn’t adding up. The case of The Missing Women of Dalton Highway has gone cold, and every new possibility leaves them with frostbite.

Duke McAllister’s and Andi Slade’s personal investigations point them in new directions, and they’re left with more questions than ever. But there’s one thing they—and the rest of the true crime podcasters—know for sure: whoever is behind these disappearances will keep taking women until he’s caught.

Will the team find answers and expose the truth before this madman strikes again? Or will the secrets of the infamous Dalton Highway remain as isolated as the landscape surrounding them?
