This is the 9th book in the 12 book Coltons of Texas continuity. The first six books in the Coltons of Texas revolves around the seven children of infamous Texas serial killer Matthew Colton. Six of the seven children went into law enforcement and the seventh became a rancher. Now, a new case is uniting all the siblings with a copy-cat serial killer mimicking their father’s MO. In order to catch the serial killer and hopefully clear their youngest sister’s name, each Colton sibling is forced to deal with his/her past in visits to the Blackthorn County Prison to meet with Matthew Colton.
The second six books revolve around the kidnapping of Eldridge Colton, a distant cousin of Matthew Colton and his seven children from two marriages. Each of the children are suspect in the kidnapping and each book eliminates suspects and offers clues as the mystery unfolds to its conclusion. I am part of this storyline.
