The little girl curled into a tiny ball as the chamber grew colder around her.
“Please,” she whispered, rocking back and forth. “I want to go home.”
When Isabelle Coleman, a blonde, beautiful young girl goes missing, everyone from the small town of Denton joins the search. They can find no trace of the town’s darling, but Detective Josie Quinn finds another girl they didn’t even know was missing.
Mute and unresponsive, it’s clear this mysterious girl has been damaged beyond repair. All Josie can get from her is the name of a third girl and a flash of a neon tongue piercing that matches Isabelle’s.
The race is on to find Isabelle alive, and Josie fears there may be other girls in terrible danger. When the trail leads her to a cold case labelled a hoax by authorities, Josie begins to wonder is there anyone left she can trust?
Someone in this close-knit town is committing unspeakable crimes. Can Josie catch the killer before another victim loses their life?
Utterly gripping crime for readers who adored Angela Marsons, Helen Fields and Robert Dugoni. You will be sleeping with the lights on once you discover the first in this unputdownable new crime thriller series.
My thanks go to Bookouture for the arc, all thoughts are my own and are in no way biased.
I have to say that before I even read the blurb for this book I knew I wanted to read it, the cover just jumped out at me. It’s stunning.
This is the start of a new series involving Detective Josie Quinn and what a cracking character she is. Suspended due to misconduct the book opens with Josie struggling to fill in her days, that is until she hears a young girl has gone missing and she’s desperate to be involved in the case.
Josie is one of those characters that you are instantly intrigued by. We know she’s been suspended but at the beginning the reason why isn’t clear, she’s also got a bit of baggage and some demons haunting her but she’s also a bit kick ass and determined. Josie is definitely a character many will love.
Vanishing Girls is quite an action packed story, right from the get go I was hooked and as the story unfolded and the many twists and turns were revealed I found myself getting closer and closer to the edge of my seat, ready for my bum to hit the floor as the pace evolved.
This isn’t your ordinary police thriller, for one Josie has been suspended and shouldn’t even be investigating. It was different and interesting and I don’t want to give anything away so I’m going to end here and just say that if you’re looking for an edge of your seat, unputdownable, sleep stealing read the Vanishing Girls is for you.
So I think I can safely say I thoroughly enjoyed Vanishing Girls and will be waiting with bated breath for book two.
