In This is one of those books I want to tell everyone to read Just say READ IT End of Story I loved that this book worked perfectly as a stand alone for me Not having read the other books in the series, I did not feel as if I was missing out at all Having said that, now that I have read this book, I am inclined to go back and read both Detective D.D Warren and Gardner Universe book series Seriously, how great was it that she combined two of her popular series and combined them Brilliant In this book, Gardner combined three strong and compelling female characters Detective D.D Warren, Flora Dane, and Kimberly Quincy My hand is in the air, enthusiastically waving forbooks with this combination of women.FBI Special Agent, Kimberly Quincy, and Sergeant Detective D.D Warren have formed a task force to follow deceased serial kidnapper and rapist Jacob Ness Flora Dane was kidnapped by Ness and having survived her horrifying time with him, is now dedicated to helping the investigators and others who have been harmed as she was.This trio of women along with Keith, a computer analyst and true crime enthusiast who has eyes for Flora , has come to Niche, a small town in the hills of Georgia where the bodies are piling up and no one is talking There they meet a young female, who does not speak except through her art, who has been named the girl by family Could she be the answer Is she the missing link or clue they have been looking for Will they ever find the extent of the damage that Jacob Ness has committed Is this only the beginning Is there even evil out there The Hills in Georgia are not alive with the sound of music, they are alive with the sounds of evil Evil, that has been around a long time Small towns hold secrets Secrets that the inhabitants will do anything to keep buried There is a web of lies, deceit, evil, murder, and depravity.This book was a real page turner for me There was tension throughout the book I loved how the story was told from various points of view This added to the tension and helped set the mood for the book This book was dripping with suspense There is the mystery of course, but the human factor, really made this book unputdownable for me I was riveted to the pages and didn t want to put this book down Like the team, I was on the case trying to figure out who the evil man was, hoping for Bonita the girl s safety, and hoping that everyone makes it out alive I really enjoyed that this felt like a fresh, new unique tale I mention this because lately, I have been feeling as if I am reading the same story just wrapped up in a different package cover Not this one This felt completely original and was a breath of fresh air for this mystery thriller book lover Gardner did her research in interviewing a nonverbal subject and spoke with many consultants to get aspects of an FBI investigation correct You will still need to suspend some disbelief while reading this one, but I didn t mind and I don t think anyone else will either.Highly Recommend.Thank you to Lisa Gardner, Penguin Group Dutton, NetGalley and Edelweiss who provided me with an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review Honestly, I loved it All the

that turn out to be those of the missing Lilah Abenito, assumed to be a victim of the now dead predator Jacob Ness Efforts to dig into Ness s criminal past had ground to a halt, but it looks as if they might just find outabout the other missing girls Joining the task force are civilians Flora Dane, a survivor of Ness, a prisoner of his for over a year, still suffering PTSD from her harrowing experience and Keith, a gifted computer analyst and true crime enthusiast There is no doubt that Flora has come a long way from the broken woman rescued from the evil Ness, but she is yet to thrive, she just cannot contemplate being in a relationship, despite being attracted to Keith.The town of Niche appears quaint, wholesome, a picture perfect tourist destination However, asandbodies are uncovered, it begins to feel sinister, beneath the veneer it is a town that is a graveyard, a hubbub of dark deeds, murder and secrets that go back a long time In the narrative is the voice of a young girl, her mother murdered, living in terror and a life of servitude, unable to speak with a gift when it comes to drawing pictures to communicate It is DD s sharply honed senses that intuit the young girl with no name is traumatised and terrorised Flora finds herself back down the nightmare of a rabbit hole, shell shocked, having to face her worst fears about her time with Ness, but is it possible that this experience offers an opportunity to finally lay her horrifying past and the ghost of Ness to rest In a narrative that takes in fresh murders amidst the rising count of cold cases,of Ness s past comes to be known, but was he a loner or part of a bigger criminal enterprise This is a well researched novel from Gardner, she provides technical details and descriptions of FBI task forces, procedures and forensic techniques when it comes to digging up the long dead When it comes to writing tense, fast paced, gripping and unputdownable thrillers, the author has few rivals She has created characters we have already come to care about, whilst introducing new people, I hope to encounter Bonita again in future additions to this series I should warn there are hard to endure upsetting coverage of the misery of human trafficking, murder andin this novel A fantastic nail biting read, you are always in safe hands when it comes to Lisa Gardner, she always comes up with the goods Cannot wait for the next in the series Many thanks to Random House Cornerstone for an ARC
