First Line – Jamie Brandt was not a bad mother.
Summary – When two young sisters disappear from a strip mall parking lot in a small Pennsylvania town, their devastated mother hires an enigmatic bounty hunter, Alice Vega, to help find the girls. Immediately shut out by a local police department already stretched thin by budget cuts and the growing OxyContin and meth epidemic, Vega enlists the help of a disgraced former cop, Max Caplan. Cap is a man trying to put the scandal of his past behind him and move on, but Vega needs his help to find the girls, and she will not be denied.
Highlight – This is the kind of book that has you sitting on the edge of your seat, unable to put it down until you finish the last page. Great original characters and so many twists and turns! I hope this spins off into a series.
Lowlight – I can’t really think of any.
FYI – Some graphic scenes involving children.
