Even in the chill of February, no place touches Harper McClain's heart like Savannah. She should be walking beneath the historic city's towering oaks, surrounded by graceful mansions. Instead, she's hiding miles away on Tybee Island after a mysterious voice on the phone warned her that someone wanted her dead. The call was too specific to ignore. The caller knew everything about her. But that was months ago, and she's getting tired of being scared.

Her only escape is her work at the newspaper, where the hottest story in town is the disappearance of Xavier Rayne. The singer had a hit album on his hands, and was about to go on tour, but then he walked out of his beachfront home and vanished. The police believe he drowned, but Harper suspects his disappearance may be more ominous than that. Something doesn't feel right about it.

His bandmates and actress girlfriend say he's run away before. They expect him to come home. Until a body washes up with two bullet holes in it. Now everyone in Rayne's life is a suspect. As Harper digs deeper into the case, though, the threats against her own life return. The phone call she received was very real. A killer from her past is coming for her.

Now she must solve two murders, or end up dying on Revolver Road....


Harper is laying low, ever since the mysterious phone call that told her that the person who killed her mother was after her.  Living in a small town outside of Savannah for the summer Harper is trying to get over her relationship with Luke the Savannah cop and still keep her job as a newspaper reporter going.  Although not much happens in this sleepy little town, until one night when her scanner starts screaming about 3 people calling in a shooting.  But with no body is there really something to investigate? 

When an upcoming guitar player is reported missing Harper knows that the shooting and the disappearance are connected.  She ingratiates herself into the fold of the guitar players group in order to get the scoop on the story.  

In addition Harper is getting anonymous phone calls telling her to investigate the Southern Mafia, where she discovers a connection to her father, a deadly connection.  Now that Harper knows who might be after her she is even more terrified. 

Well written mystery.  I really love Harper and her "dog with a bone" attitude when it comes to the news.  She is tough even though she doesn't believe she is.  I am really routing for her with her relationship with Luke although how a cop and a reporter can stay together is going to be a tough one, I think one of them is going to have to give up something they love in order to remain with each other.  This series is definitely worth the read.
