So, I'm on book #12 for the year and I've read some good ones.
And then I read #12. I won't share the title, but I'll give you the plot.
Mikki, a policewoman is coming home late one night during a rain storm and has to make a bridge inspection, but instead finds no bridge but a smashed car which belonged to an old boyfriend (he's unconscious) and his wife (she's dead). Mikki calls an ambulance and the police. The ambulance comes and takes the husband to the hospital and then Mikki checks out where the bridge is and disappears herself. Literally and literaturally.
The husband(a lawyer) gains consciousness, says he was pushed off the road by a white SUV and then his secretary is arrested for murder, but the lawyer says she couldn't have done it even though she's been blackmailed because someone says that her brother who was killed in the war is really alive and she needed money. A detective realizes that the same person who killed the lawyer's wife, killed a man named Micah four years ago and his suspected killer is on death row. So the lawyer and another policewoman (not the Mikki lady - she's still disappeared) are out to find out what happened. But then the secretary from jail tells him his dead wife had an anniversary present for him which is actually a deed to property they've always wanted. The lawyer and the policewoman go to the property and are shot at by someone in a while SUV. Then they discover that the secretary didn't murder the wife and that the guy on death row didn't really murder the Micah guy either. They find that out because they just happen on a DVD in a locker in a bowling alley. But when the chief is going to call and get the guy cleared from death row, he stages an accident so he can't get there in time.
Meanwhile the lawyer finds old railroad tracks buried by the river on his property. No one knew the tracks were there so he visits a railroad hobbyist. Then he and the policewoman start digging around with another lawyer and the railroad guy and then a lady comes floating down the river because she fell out of a canoe and then the lawyer rescues her and they're in the woods and then the bad guys come in their canoe and the rescued lady happens to be blind and finds a cave and they all go into the cave to hide from the bad guys and there's a whole train in there. Then the bad guys blow up the cave and they get stuck. So even though the train is many years old, they start the train and break out of the cave. But the bad guys are there and shoot them.
But they shoot back and one guy gets caught in a tree. And later back at the house the blind girl finds a yearbook under the couch and ...
Then it says to be continued! GOOD GRIEF!
