Secrets to the Grave, by Tami Hoag
I truly did not like this book. Long-winded, repetitive, ridiculously plotted, hackneyed, and tortuously and torturously plotted. It's not that Hoag can't write a good thriller, so maybe it's that she can't sustain a series. A woman is horribly murdered, her young daughter nearly so, and the people in charge of discovering her killer and protecting her daughter screw both of those things up. A lot. Over and over. Jeez.
