Hilary Davidson – One Small Sacrifice


An apparent suicide. A mysterious disappearance. Did one man get away with murder – twice?

NYPD detective Sheryn Sterling has had her eye on Alex Traynor ever since his friend Cori fell to her death under suspicious circumstances a year ago. Coris death was ruled a suicide, but Sheryn thinks Alex – a wartime photojournalist suffering from PTSD – got away with murder.

When Alexs fiance, Emily, a talented and beloved local doctor, suddenly goes missing, Sheryn suspects that Alex is again at the center of a sticky case. Sheryn dislikes loose ends, and Coris death had way too many of them.

But as Sheryn starts pulling at the threads in this web, her whole theory unravels. Everyone involved remembers the night Cori died differently – and the truth about her death could be the key to solving Emilys disappearance.

This was my first Hilary Davidson’s book, and won’t be my last. This is the first book in the Shadows of New York, a suspenseful police procedural Series. The characters are great!: Alex, a photojournalist who suffers from PTSD; Emily, a doctor, volunteers with Doctors Without Borders; Sheryn, an NYPD detective, and Rafael, her partner. The secondary characters are intriguing, and they have an important part in this story. The storyline is fast-paced, suspenseful, and filled with mystery, secrets, and twists and turns. The intrigue unfolds at a great pace. The full cast narration is really well done. Natalie Naudus, Lacy Laurel, Joe Hempel and Mark Turetsky did a wonderful job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series, Don’t Look Down.
