Thirty years after losing a parent to a hit-and-run drunk driver, FBI agent Alex Troutt finally confronts the killer–the same man who just murdered the Boston police chief.
And what Alex pulls from him shatters her core.
Armed with little more than hope and a shred of decades-old evidence, Alex chases a memory from her past, hoping that she’ll find the mother she never really had. With her old buddy Archie on board –as much as ever can be — the hunt takes her deep into the foothills of West Virginia. A fanatical religious cult has created its own society. Desperate to right a thirty-year wrong, Alex must out-think and out-duel everyone in her path to right a thirty-year wrong.
Will Alex’s quest to find the truth destroy her life all over again?
With the passing of Alex’s father there’s a chance things from the past can finally be put to rest, and Alex has no problem with that, but when a letter from her father comes her way, things change very quickly. Questions arise to what really happened to Alex’s mother, had she really died in a car accident? Was she alive? The past can destroy her life all over again, question is- Will it destroy her life with or without the answers of what really happened thirty years ago? Alex isn’t one to turn down unanswered questions though and this one hits home to her . As she starts to get a few leads, she’s uncovering more than she anticipated all together. What thirty year old murder wouldn’t have a few major twists along the way? A whirlwind of a case is nothing new to Alex so she doesn’t back down, more determined than ever to solve the unknown.
On the move to find out what happened and put an end to the past for once and for all Alex is not leaving any clue upturned along her way. As with any case, the suspense is never lurking around the corners, neither are the people willing to stop her from finding out any more information about what had really happened. Alex is hit with flashbacks that don’t always add up to what she’s uncovering the further she gets. More than ever her determination is high , so the question is- Can Alex uncover the truth before the truth ends up covering her up right along with the thirty year old murder? You’ll have to read AT Last by John Mefford to find out!
