Several months ago, I read Vendetta by Lisa Harris and felt I had finally found something similar to the FBI suspense thrillers I used to read (until they got weird). Missing is Harris’s second novel in the Nikki Boyd Files and picks up just 5 weeks after Vendetta and follows Nikki and her team with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Missing Persons Special Task Force as an investigation unfolds.
This investigation starts with homicides, but Nikki and her team race to find two missing people. They are met with unusual circumstances that drag Nikki’s friend Tyler into the investigation. Time is running out, and more people end up dead before the team gets a good lead. The investigation reveals a complicated and tangled web of deceit and greed that leaves the reader in suspense through the end.
Missing is a fast-paced, suspenseful book that kept me reading when I should have been doing other things. I didn’t want it to end, but I couldn’t wait to get to the resolution. I am most definitely reading the third installment next spring.
I received this book for free from Revell in exchange for an honest review. These thoughts and opinions are my own.
