On the way to her PI job, Cameron encountered a woman who was clearly upset. After stopping to talk with her she realized that this woman was a potential client who was unsure if she wanted their services or not. Cameron convinced her to come to the office so they can discuss it. The case seemed simple enough, follow her niece and make sure she was safe. When a murder happens during the surveillance, the case takes a dark turn. Cameron and her colleagues have to wade into a world of ritual sacrifice and ecofeminism to keep their client safe, but can they find enough evidence to keep their client and themselves out of jail?
This was a cozy that tried too hard not to be a thriller. I found a lot of the conversations with her children unrealistic because no parent, especially a PI, would discuss gruesome details with young teens. Not having read the previous books, I thought it was a good stand-alone novel. The characters were well-developed and the storyline did keep you guessing. Overall I thought it was just OK.
