many attributes from location, atmosphere and great characters to an intricate shocking plot that is compelling and keeps you guessing to the end.It has been a long time since I read Lisa Gardner and I worried about reading her new book without some background to her previous novels in the series I have to say, in no way did I feel I had missed some history or background to make this story work This is a unique novel that can be treated as a standalone.Detective DD Warren, Special Security Agent Kimberly Qunicy and serial killer survivor Flora Dane, are all fascinating characters, full of energy, depth, intrigue and resolve While they appear in previous Lisa Gardner novels, there is a freshness to their role in this story They have been called together as part of a task force to investigate the human remains of a young woman thought to be another victim of the serial killer, Jacob Ness Flora was once a kidnapped prisoner of Ness for over a year, but she killed him as part of her escape to freedom Flora is psychologically wounded as a consequence and undoubtedly struggles with PTSD and survivor s guilt It is fascinating to observe Flora as a very determined person, brave but introspective and places huge barriers against human relationships and a fear of vulnerability Her good friend Keith may becomeif she can overcome her resistance to trust and fight the images of horror she endured.The task force investigation faces many complex situations in the little town of Niche, Georgia A town that seems idyllic but gradually darker and darker secrets are revealed To what extent are the people of Niche involved in the horror unfolding, asandwomen are found buried in the woods An encounter with a young mute girl, terribly deformed from an accident, and living with the mayor and his wife as their niece, brings about a personal mission from DD that she will protect her and get to the bottom of these deaths The life of the young girl is heartbreaking and gives our sense of justice an adrenaline shot.The story is told from the perspective of the four main women Flora, DD, Kimberly and an unknown female The mix of characters and how they interact with others is wonderfully told and it is absorbing how their dialogue and relationships keep this story full of surprises and fears Some people are obviously involved behind the public masks they wear and the ring leader is elusive and very difficult to guess A superb psychological mystery that progresses at a mighty rate, right to the dramatic finale.I feel remiss not to have readof Lisa Gardner but this novel has reacquainted an old author and I ll be looking for her other books shortly I would highly recommend this book and I would like to thank Century Books, Random House UK Cornerstone and NetGalley for providing me with a free ARC copy of the book in return for an honest review NOW AVAILABLE This is only the second book that I have read in this series but it can definitely be read as a stand alone I will tell you that this book scared the heck out of me It didn t help that I was reading it at night and way past my bedtime, bad idea, had trouble falling asleep At any rate the story is told from three different points of view Flora Dane is a survivor, she was held captive kidnapped, raped and terrorized for over a year by Jacob Ness, until she herself was able NOW AVAILABLE This is only the second book that I have read in this series but it can definitely be read as a stand alone I will tell you that this book scared the heck out of me It didn t help that I was reading it at night and way past my bedtime, bad idea, had trouble falling asleep At any rate the story is told from three different points of view Flora Dane is a survivor, she was held captive kidnapped, raped and terrorized for over a year by Jacob Ness, until she herself was able to kill him She has spent the last 7 years since then trying to help other victims and now is part of this task force which is sent to a small mountain town in the deep woods of Georgia Skeletal remains have been found and it is possible that these may be linked to Jacob Ness, the man who had held Flora captive.The other members of the team include detective D.D Warren and FBI Agent Kimberley Quincey We are told the story from these three POV s and Italicized paragraphs in the voice of an unknown person There are many others who will become a part of the investigative team including Keith, a computer analyst who adds his talents at decoding what will become a tangled web of evil.This Georgia town s inhabitants are all potentially involved in what has been going on, particularly the mayor and his wife who own the updated and beautiful Victorian B B at the town s center They basically run the town and many of the townspeople are fearful of saying anything against them.It isn t long beforeskeletons are found andforensic teams are called in All the while the on scene teams split into two teams, one to interrogate inhabitants of the town and the others to use an ATV to canvas the area where the skeletal remains have been found.This isn t a slow burn of a mystery, it becomes a thriller quite quickly and the tension just keeps on building It is very difficult with a thriller so multi layered to say muchwithout giving away any part of the plot It would be best to just start reading and let the story drawn you in, and it will I promise you.There are, of course, some believability issues with how many people can be evil in one small town, but that is the nature of the genre and I was willing to just go along for the ride I really enjoyed the strong female characters in this novel, all of whom have had their own personal struggles I highly recommend this book to readers of the D.D.Warren series but anyone can pick up this novel and read it on it s own merit I received an ARC of this novel through NetGalley This book is set to publish on January 28, 2020 I ve been a devoted Lisa

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
