The Missing ~ Review

Missing
The Nikki Boyd Files #2
By Lisa Harris

The first 48 hours are the most critical...

When Nikki Boyd and her partner Jack Spencer are called to the scene of a homicide they learn that the homeowners are missing and time is essential.  When a lead bring them to Tyler Grant and another homicide victim the case becomes much more personal for Nikki.

But untangling the truth about what happened will place Nikki and those who mean the most to her in danger. Someone is determined to keep their secret at any cost and they don't care how many lives it takes.

The deeper Nikki digs the more complex the case becomes. Counterfeit drugs, blackmail, murder, and a missing woman.  How do these seemingly random crimes tie to Tyler?  And even more importantly can she keep Tyler and his family alive long enough to find out who is behind everything?

Sometimes those whom you trust the most are those you should keep at arm's length.  Time is running out and Nikki is seemingly no closer to the truth than before she got called in to the case. But she is once again in someone's sights.

Missing is the second book in the Nikki Boyd Files series.  It picks up shortly after Vendetta, five weeks to be precise, and Missing doesn't disappoint if you are looking for suspense that will keep you turning the pages. As Nikki deals with the unique circumstances this case presents she also is dealing with her own personal and family issues. In other words she is just dealing with life and all its complex and unexpected twists and turns.

This is suspense that will keep you reading into the night, but it won't keep you from sleeping because of graphic and disturbing violence (for those who are wondering).  Reading the first book isn't necessary but recommended just so you'll better understand what Nikki is dealing with in her past.

I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Revell in exchange for my honest review.

About the Book:
Nikki Boyd isn't usually called in on homicides; her forte is missing persons. But when a case with two murdered and two missing pops up on a quiet suburban street, she's ready to start the investigation and find missing homeowners Mac and Lucy Hudson. When the first clues lead her to the boat of her friend Tyler Grant--and another dead body--Nikki must untangle what ties Tyler to the Hudsons. The clues pull her into a deadly maze of counterfeit drugs and a killer who will stop at nothing to silence anyone who threatens his business--including Nikki.
