On a balmy spring evening, four high school seniors--three boys and a girl--enter a park in the small Pennsylvania city of Conroy. The next morning, two of the boys are found shot to death, and the girl and the third boy are gone. After three weeks with no leads and no sign of either of the two missing teenagers, the chief of police begins to wonder if they too were victims. But with no other suspects, the authorities conclude that one of these kids was the shooter. The missing boy's grandmother, a secretary at the local parish church, maintains his innocence. On her behalf, the parish priest, Father Kevin Burch, hires former detective Mallory Russo as a private investigator to figure out what happened in the park that night. Mallory had ended her nine-year stint with the Conroy police force some time ago after becoming a target of a smear campaign. Now a true-crime author, Mallory is surprised to receive the priest's offer--and highly intrigued by the case. She can't help but accept the challenge--especially when she learns that her investigation will be financed by Father Burch's cousin the reclusive billionaire Robert Magellan, a man whose own wife and infant son disappeared without a trace a year ago, a man who understands the heartache of not knowing what happened to a loved one.

An excellent book, situations very real and made you think, this is the first book in a series of three and look forward to continue reading about the Mercy Foundation in books #2 and #3.

This story was written with heart and focus. The main characters were very likeable and I really enjoyed the quick pacing of the plot, as well as the variety of supporting characters. The mystery and an added touch of romance worked well together. The story left just enough loose ends to pull the reader into wanting to read the next installment. Will definitely read the next book in the series.
