A compelling mystery with a powerful theme of forgiveness and healing...

Journalist Whitney Barnes investigates the mysterious death of her mother and three women from Cortland City seeking the thread that links them to an enigmatic killer. Why are women being murdered with no apparent motives for their death? Police are mystified at the lack of clues and a growing sense of fear surrounds the community. Who will be the next victim?

Determined to find the killer, Whitney discovers these women were dealing with wounds from their troubling pasts, but what was their connection? She teams up with Dr. Sarah Stevens, an expert on women’s issues, to ferret out information while TV talk show host Rich and real estate broker Jordan vie for Whitney’s affection.

Whitney discovers new strength within her but is it powerful enough to cope with this dark force of evil? Suspense escalates as Whitney becomes the killer’s next target.

My review:
Never Tomorrow is one of those mysteries that make the reader twitch and look over a shoulder while reading. It’s Whitney’s story, the daughter of the first victim in this troubling story of the investigation of a serial killer still at work. As a journalist, Whitney is in a prime seat of power to search for clues, with or without the cooperation of the small town police chief, who is on her side and not too proud to quietly accept help, as long as she stays on her side of the fence and doesn’t get herself killed too. Which is likely the deeper she digs.

Rolfs, a therapist, has created a large cast with multiple layers of personal issues that have you chasing down well-trampled bunny trails while the killer stares you in the face the entire time. While well-populated, each character has his or her own quirks and story line that keep them separated, even if you dare to put the book down for a day. Told in multiple viewpoints, sometimes a single time from a particular character, the reader is held at chilling arm’s length as the killer calmly presents the reasons behind the murder even as you get an inkling of what might be coming. Some repeated use of titles and full names and repetitious scenarios either heighten tension or slow the action depending on reader preference. For those who like a story laced with all the right reasons to live no matter who endangers your life.
