Summary
When Martin Flynn dies in a motorcycle accident, his FBI agent daughter Nell returns to the house she grew up in for the first time in 12 years. At the behest of her father's partner Nell becomes involved in an investigation into the murders of two young Hispanic women in Suffolk County. The further Nell digs, the more likely it seems to her that her father should be the prime suspect - and that his friends on the police force are covering his tracks. Plagued by doubts about her mother's murder - and her own role in exonerating her father in that case - Nell can't help but ask questions about who killed Ria Ruiz and Adriana Marques and why.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "New York's Suffolk County Police Department, established in 1960 to address the rise in crime and traffic issues resulting from the dramatic growth of the 1950s, had a sterling reputation well into the new century, when things went bad in a big way. The conviction of Police Chief James Burke in 2016 on a civil rights charge exposed a crooked cop culture involved in sex trafficking, among other criminal endeavors. That history inspired this excellent crime novel in which FBI agent Nell Flynn joins the investigation of a string of grisly murders that leads her to suspect her own father, SCPD Homicide Detective Martin Flynn. She also begins to question her recollections of the night her mother was murdered. The victims in the case under investigation were sex workers, their severed remains bound up in burlap sacks, as were the real-life victims of Long Island's sadly unsolved Gilgo Beach murders. Lifelong New Yorker Alger describes the atmosphere of the area's parks and beaches well. She captures the social dynamics of Suffolk's eastern extremes perfectly. The first-person narrative is appropriately terse Nell delivers a thorough report but it occasionally surprises with a gripping depth, such as when she reflects on how unsettling a murder scene can be, about the darkness that clings to the air long after the killer has departed. Highly recommended, although perhaps not as a beach read.--Jane Murphy Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "FBI agent Nell Flynn, the 28-year-old narrator of this propulsive thriller from Alger (The Banker's Wife), returns home to Hampton Bays, N.Y., to bury her father, homicide detective Martin Flynn, who died at 52 in a motorcycle accident. Even though Nell, who's on leave from the FBI after killing a member of the Russian mafia and taking a bullet in the shoulder, is anxious to settle his estate and turn her back on the town where her mother was murdered 21 years earlier, she agrees to help rookie homicide detective Lee Davis investigate the murders of two women. Nell and Lee soon uncover evidence pointing to police corruption, a local prostitution ring, and even her father, who was keeping his own secrets, but was he actually involved in victimizing vulnerable young women? As Nell seeks to unearth the truth in a small town determined to keep its secrets, she comes squarely into a killer's crosshairs. Alger expertly ratchets up the suspense all the way to the explosive finale. Readers will hope to see more of tough, smart Nell. Author tour. Agent: Alexandra Machinist, ICM.
