Innocence Taken - Pray He Kills You Quickly
One dead girl, another one missing, and a secret that will rip a tight-knit community apart…
When missing teen Becca Martin’s dismembered body shows up on the side of the road, Lt. Damien Kaine must crush her parent’s hopes of her safe return. Two days into the investigation, Damien has little evidence pointing to a suspect and the parents are pushing for details and answers. Things he can’t give.
A second girl is abducted. Her dismembered body dumped on a local farmer’s land. When Damien sees the victim, her resemblance to Becca is uncanny. The similarities between the two cases is even more disturbing.
As Damien searches for a sadistic killer, a disturbing pattern emerges. The more he digs into the community’s history, the more missing girls he finds. Some going back as far as fifteen years and their bodies have never been found. All these girls have something in common, they resemble each other.
With the lack of evidence or movement forward on the case, a quirky FBI profiler is pulled in to assist with the investigation. Damien wrestles with disdain for the agent and an equally strong sexual attraction to her, as he deals with mounting frustrations.
Tensions rise with the abduction of another girl. Damien and his team are in a race against time to save her. But the case is about to take a frightful turn. What they uncover will not only rock them to their core, it will haunt them forever.
