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. With no other suspects, the authorities conclude that one of these kids was the shooter. On behalf of the missing boy's grandmother, the parish priest, Father Kevin Burch, hires former detective Mallory Russo 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. She accepts the challenge. Her investigation will be financed by the reclusive billionaire Robert Magellan, a man who understands the heartache of not knowing what happened to a loved one. Detective Charlie Wanamaker is assigned to the park shooting case, and quickly realizes that the initial investigation left a lot of questions unanswered. Unofficially, he teams up with Mallory. What Charlie and Mallory discover will take them down a twisted path that leads to an old unsolved murder - and justice for a killer with a heart of stone.

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.
