My Thoughts: 4.5/5 stars!
I read FIND HER by Lisa Gardner last year and I absolutely loved it! Well, Detective D.D. Warren is back with Flora Dane to seek justice in a gruesome murder case. In true form, Gardner brings the read on a crazy ride with suspense at every turn. It just reinforces that I need to get more of her books.
Detective D.D. Warren is assigned to a murder case. A family of five was brutally and savagely murdered – all but one family member were accounted for. The 16 year old daughter is missing. Did she manage to successfully escape or was she taken? Warren isn’t the only one looking for the girl, Flora Dane, the survivor from FIND HER, is also looking for justice. While their ideas of justice differ, they must work through the clues that were left behind in order to figure out if Roxy is a victim or their suspect.
The relationship between Warren and Dane is fantastic. They have a great chemistry and are just opposite enough of each other that it makes their partnership work without too much head-butting. I was completely sucked into this one from the beginning and found myself flipping the pages nonstop. Despite being book nine in the D.D. Warren series this can absolutely be read as a standalone. That being said, I would recommend reading FIND HER first, because then you can get to know Flora better and her story.
Overall, another solid crime thriller for fans of the genre. It was an entertaining and engrossing read from start to finish.
