 Description:

AN ESCAPED KIDNAPPING VICTIM BECOMES AN AVENGER OF INNOCENTS. CAN SHE ESCAPE WHEN SHE’S TARGETED AGAIN? The eighth novel in Sunday Times bestseller Lisa Gardner’s Detective D. D. Warren series. Harlan Coben says FIND HER is ‘taut psychological suspense’ which ‘should not be missed’.

 

I ESCAPED

 

My name is Flora Dane and I was kidnapped from a beach on spring break. I spent 472 days with my captor before I was found.

 

I SURVIVED

 

I spent the last five years trying to reacquaint myself with the rhythms of my life. But everything is different. I’ve had to learn how to protect myself in this dangerous new world.

 

I’M RECKLESS

 

There are other predators out there and I’ll do anything to stop them. Am I a victim or a vigilante? Detective D. D. Warren doesn’t know. Sometimes neither do I.

 

When another girl disappears, I know I have to FIND HER, whatever it takes, even if it means putting myself in danger…

 

Escaped kidnap victim Flora Dane has once again disappeared. Has the self-proclaimed vigilante become a victim? Or is something far more sinister at play? D.D. will have to race against the clock if she is going to Find Her.

 

 

 

My View

One of the most exciting books I have read in a while. Lisa Gardner really is on top of her game!

 

This read has one of our favourite detectives D D Warren back on the case, a case that is crammed full of mystery; missing women, abductions, dead bodies and a victim/ possible vigilante to contend with, the pulse races as you turn the pages.

 

Another great hook in the prologue sets up the narrative and your eyes will fly across the page hungry to read every word.

“These are the things I didn’t know:

When you first wake up in a dark wooden box, you’ll tell yourself this isn’t happening. You’ll push against the lid, of course. No surprises there. You’ll beat at the sides with your fists, pummel your heels against the bottom…And you’ll scream. You will scream and scream and scream.”

 

There are some fantastic twists and reveals that will catch you unawares – they are quietly and gently slipped into the pages, expect them when you least expect them.

 

And you will appreciate the dedication, “For survivors everywhere.”
