Girl Long Gone
She feels a flutter of excitement from meeting and flirting with the interesting man she’d met online—and sharing details of her weekend plans. They had so many things in common…but sometimes one little mistake can have deadly consequences.
NYPD Computer Crimes detective Connor Mitchel’s sister is missing. As he combs through her life, he has a terrible suspicion that she isn’t this killer’s first target—or his last. Now Connor’s caught up in a twisted game of cat and mouse.
Just as he thinks he’s on the trail of the man responsible for his sister’s disappearance, Connor runs into an obstacle—shy, distrustful Evelyn Price. He’s almost certain Evelyn could be the killer’s newest target. But he’ll have to convince her to help him catch a killer before she becomes the next victim. But even if Connor and Evelyn can close in on their quarry, the killer has one last trick up his sleeve… one that could trap them all.
Get ready for the ultimate level of suspense and mystery!
Get ready for the ultimate level of suspense and mystery! Connor’s sister has been kidnapped, and he is extremely frustrated because although he’s a detective, he’s been taken off the case. Determined to find out who took his sister and get her back safely, he works his own angle ends up meeting Evelyn, who he believes is the killer’s next target. Evelyn has decided to attempt to date thanks to her friends nagging, and decides, as a way to ease into it would be to go on a date with someone she went to high school with. She doesn’t know him well but he’s familiar because of their knowing of each other in the past. But once Connor and Evelyn meet, things start to progress and the killer begins to toy with them as he knows they are both on to him. In the end, I didn’t see any of what happened coming, and found myself thoroughly involved in helping Connor put the clues together. In combination with the suspense and mystery, we also found Connor and Evelyn explore the chemistry they realize they have early on, and we see Evelyn work through her past trauma. This book was interesting because we find out who the murder is in the beginning and throughout the storyline we see the detective work to put things together and piece together the clues to find out who it is. While I enjoyed that, it also became somewhat frustrating when Connor had trouble connecting the dots. Overall, I definitely enjoyed this book!
