Written by Lisa Gardner
Detective DD Warren and Flora Dane are in a race against time to save a young girl’s life – or bring her to justice.
A family home has become a crime scene. Five people are involved: four of them have been savagely murdered; one – a sixteen-year-old girl – is missing.
Was she lucky to have escaped? Or is her absence evidence of something sinister?
Detective D. D. Warren is on the case, as is survivor-turned-avenger Flora Dane.
Seeking different types of justice, they must make sense of the clues left behind by a young woman who, as victim or suspect, is silently pleading, Look for me.
Really Fast-paced and Totally Absorbing!
What an enthralling read! This is the kind of book where, when you take a moment to glance at how far into the book you are, you are filled with disbelief.
A family murdered, one member missing – what’s the obvious conclusion? But is it the right one? This story follows both the police case and another, less official, investigation both with the same aim although for slightly different reasons. A really fast-paced read and totally absorbing. Who to believe and who to trust?
Look for Her is well written and completely believable. There are a few lighter moments in this tale as we follow D.D.’s family life. I’ve also learned that if I ever move to Mass., USA (highly unlikely as I live in Scotland) then it’s illegal to carry mace for self defence but perfectly okay to have bear spray! That little tidbit has amused me greatly in among all the serious stuff. This is definitely a read I would recommend and, at some point when my reading list is less under pressure I hope to go back and read earlier books in this series, it’s that good!
My grateful thanks to publishers Cornerstone Digital for approving my request to read via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
