Ties That Bind
By Natalie R. Collins
St. Martin’s Paperbacks
August 2012
352 pages

After six months on the job, Detective Sam Montgomery was having second thoughts about the dubious honor of being the first woman detective in Kanesville, Utah. Having fled a relationship and a case gone bad in Salt Lake City, her hometown provided a safe haven – or so she thought. Until another teen died, the third in a string of recent teen deaths that appeared to be suicides. What really gets the young detective’s attention is that all the teens died the same way her sister, Callie died when Sam was only six years old. Her own hunch that the deaths are somehow connected, even after all these years, terrifies her. When the next victim is a member of her own family, Sam knows there’s a serial killer on the loose. But in order to solve this case, she must re-live the death of her big sister over and over as she comes to terms with her mistakes in the past. Natalie Collins, the Queen of Mormon thrillers, captures readers yet again with Ties That Bind. Gripping, psychological suspense combined with a chilling murder mystery and a hint of romance to spice things up is the best recipe for scrumptious reading. But watch out – the ending will reach out and grab you.
