Evie Blackwell's reputation as a top investigator for the Illinois State Police has landed her an appointment to the governor's new Missing Persons Task Force. This elite investigative team is launched with plenty of public fanfare. The governor has made this initiative a high priority, so they will have to produce results -- and quickly. Evie and her new partner, David Marshal, are assigned to a pair of unrelated cases in suburban Chicago, and while both involve persons now missing for several years, the cases couldn't be more different. While Evie opens old wounds in a close-knit neighborhood to find a missing college student, David searches for a private investigator working for a high-powered client. With a deep conviction that "justice for all" truly matters, Evie and David are unrelenting in their search for the truth. But Evie must also find answers to the questions that lie just beneath the surface in her personal life.

This was an amazing read! The case was surprising and kept you moving! I liked this one almost as much as Traces of Guilt.

This police procedural features a new cold case task force. It seems written to please the Christian romance reader -- lots of police proceeding is arranged with incredible efficiency by the super-nice female detectives. Expect frequent interruptions for relationship angst; power players; star glamour and emoting re said star; excellent food lovingly described; and Serious Contemplation of Marriage -- and will Jesus Be Okay with it?. In the middle of all this, the detectives get incredible amounts of online detecting done in incredibly small units of time. Not that this doesn't happen in other formats too ... I'm thinking of the TV detective show where the quirky computer whiz presses a single button and presto! ... a nationwide manhunt is reduced to a suspect living one commercial break down the turnpike. Go Figure. The lead detectives here are also so speedy at writing their reports that I want to know what editor app they are using. However, Henderson is an experienced professional writer, and the mystery plots (there are actually two) are good, after the reader unpacks them from the general clutter.

I enjoyed Traces of Guilt and was looking forward to this second instalment of the series. I was a little disappointed in the lack of tension in this story. It probably reflects the reality of the daily grind of sifting through evidence and following numerous leads but doesn’t make the book much of a page turner. Coupled with Evie’s indecision about accepting Rob’s marriage proposal, there’s not much excitement on either front.
I imagine I will read the next book, if only to find out if Evie does decide to marry Rob.

I enjoy "Mystery and Detective Fiction" but failed to catch the additional descriptor "Christian" on this book. The title grabbed me. A cold case task force has been established by the state Governor and Evie Blackwell is an important member. Threads refer to the lines of inquiry she and her partner, David Marshal, develop to find a missing young woman. Over 200 and the suspicion spotlight focuses on several in turn. Fascinating. Is a second case, that of a missing private investigator, related to the first? A premise for a good read. Yet I never knew there was a sub-group of my favourite genre which added Christian preaching and American mid-west conservative morality. It's prominent. The things you learn. Not for me; I only have so much reading time. The leads are bland and close-to flawless. Is this sub-group a response to the main category with such flawed characters as Spenser, Carl Merck, Kinsey Millhone, and Virgil Flowers? My thanks to the librarian who added the extra descriptor; I promise to take you more seriously in the future.

The book shows the incredible amount of work that goes into an effort to solve cold cases. However, I think Evie's decision on marriage should have been made in this book as it was also part of the first book and this became very repetitive, otherwise a good read

Too much detail of fact of the cases. Just about quit half way through.

Boring police procedural.

Didn't realize how Christian and heterosexual book was.

This book is better than the 1st if that is even possible. I am so glad I found Dee Henderson, as one of my best authors.
