Cover Reveal: One Child Alive
I am so excited to reveal the cover and blurb for One Child Alive, the third book in my Rockwell and Decker mystery thriller series!
The idea for One Child Alive came to me in a single image: a lavish beach house set ablaze on the shores of Fog Harbor. Inside, the bodies of the seemingly perfect Fox family, each one with a bullet to the head. Olivia and Will face their toughest case yet, as the only survivor–four-year-old Thomas–utters just a single word to describe the killer: Policeman. One Child Alive is available for preorder NOW at the links below.
If you enjoyed the first two books in the series, I think you are in for a treat with this one…it features the same characters but can be read as a standalone. Without further ado, introducing One Child Alive:
One, two, three. She counts the bodies dragged from the burning beach house, smoke rising from their cotton pajamas, and remembers a fourth; red hair, freckles, clinging to his mother’s legs, begging to watch the fireworks a while longer. “Where’s the little boy?” she whispers…
In the ashes of the Fox family’s seafront vacation home, Olivia Rockwell can barely hold back her tears as she wonders who in the close-knit town of Fog Harbor could destroy such a warm, loving family. Then she spots a little green toy soldier in the sand and follows a set of small footprints along the beach to an abandoned lifeguard hut. Inside, she finds the youngest Fox child, Thomas. The only survivor…
Holding his trembling body close, Olivia promises to keep him safe. She knows the agony of losing family at such a young age. But the second Thomas catches sight of Detective Will Decker’s sliver police badge over her shoulder, the little boy’s scream pierces the night. Could the family have been targeted by someone sworn to protect them? Is anyone safe if the police themselves are the primary suspect?
Unsure who she can trust, Olivia keeps hold of the tiny horseshoe charm she finds at the scene and follows the trail deep into the web of lies surrounding this seemingly perfect family. But just as a tip-off from a local lighthouse-keeper puts the killer within reach, tragedy strikes: little Thomas is snatched from his bed.
Up against a calculating monster who seems to know her every weakness, Olivia must dig deeper than ever before to find this innocent child. But when one twisted killer becomes two, can she stay alive long enough to save him?
