Wick is a pretty brilliant hacker. She learned from her dad, who is wanted by the police and has already escaped them once. She now lives with her sister in their new foster home. Wick does some hacking on the side to earn money for her and her sister. She doesn't believe that they will have a forever home with her foster parents and wants to be prepared. Then she gets an odd package on her doorstep. Tessa Waye's diary. The same Tessa Waye who just killed herself. Inside there's a note that says "Find Me". Wick doesn't want to work this case, because she has no idea what she's supposed to be finding...but then she finds out. Tessa was being abused by someone, someone she doesn't name even in her diary and Wick's sister is his next target.

What a fast-paced read. I had to force myself to pause my reading so that I could go to bed. I didn't want to stop. Every few pages you learn just a little bit more that grabs you and pulls you in. Romily Bernard creates a thrilling tale here with Wick.

I didn't love the relationship between Wick and Griff. It seemed a bit extraneous. I did like Griff though and thought that as the series progresses I wouldn't mind him weaving in with Wick's story more. It just felt rushed especially with how prickly Wick is to everyone.

I liked how we slowly got to find out more and more about Wick's life as we are faced with her trying to unravel Tessa's. Wick's life is not an easy one and I can see why she is suspicious of everyone. It's hard to trust anyone when the people you are supposed to be able to trust are monsters.

I would definitely recommend checking this one out. Yes it is the first in the series, but it stands by itself perfectly well. It leaves you craving more story, but wraps up it's mystery nicely.

First Line:
"I'm halfway through the remote computer's firewall then Detective Carson parks on the other side of our street."

Favorite Line:
"It's just four little words, but they make my insides go cold:
Will you do it?"
