This is my first read of Lisa Gardner and what a great read. I can see that I have been missing out so will have to put that right. This did not, however, diminish my enjoyment of this novel at all.
Human bones are found by two hikers and these are determined to be the remains of Lilah Abenito, who has been missing for some fifteen years. Jacob Ness is believed to be responsible for the murder even though he is now dead.
Detective Sergeant DD Warren joins forces with the FBI task force to investigate, drawing in a previous victim and computer analyst in an exceptionally well-researched storyline.
The town of Niche becomes embroiled in the horrors as other bodies are discovered. As a reader I am introduced to Bonita, who is mute and manages to portray the horrific scenes she has witnessed to the FBI task force.
Thank you to NetGalley, Random House UK, Cornerstone Century and Lisa Gardner for my ARC in return for my honest review.
Excellent read and highly recommended.
