Isabella pedals her bright red bike on the familiar route home, admiring her charm bracelet catching the light. But half an hour later, she is nowhere to be seen. All her frantic parents find is an angel-shaped charm discarded on the sidewalk…
When twelve-year-old Isabella Farner disappears, Agent Tori Hunter races to the scene. Witnesses—including her partner’s son who was biking home with Isabella—saw a man throw her into the back of his blue van and speed away. Terrified that a child she loves like her own might be next, Tori knows every second counts in the hunt for the missing girl.
Isabella’s distraught parents insist no-one would want to harm their perfect family. But soon a photo of Isabella looking terrified is discovered, holding a copy of today’s newspaper. Why would the Farners conceal information about their own missing daughter? And what else do they have to hide?
Then, while searching a stretch of road where the van was last seen, Tori finds a tiny clue: an angel-shaped charm. Isabella was here. But what chance is there that she is being kept alive?
Unable to trust Isabella’s parents, as Tori closes in on the truth she realises someone already known to police must be involved: and she herself is in terrible danger. But even if Tori makes the ultimate sacrifice, will it be enough to find this innocent girl before she disappears forever?
An absolutely mind-blowing crime thriller that will keep you up until the early hours! Fans of Karin Slaughter, Robert Dugoni and Melinda Leigh won’t be able to stop turning the pages.
Thank you to Bookouture for letting me take part in this tour and for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I am a big fan of this series so I was clearly excited when the 4th book was announced. While this is the 4th book you could read it as a standalone.
Tori and Braddock have quite the case on their hands this time. It was full of twist after twist. Just when you thought you knew what was going on, BAM Roger pulls the rug out from under your feet. Nothing about this case made sense. From the very beginning, there is this niggle that something is off.
The story was very fast-paced and packed full of action. Roger had me on the edge of my seat.
Highly recommend if you love a good police procedural that will have you biting your nails with tension then this is one for you.
