“Set among Louisiana’s swamps and brooding atmosphere, 'Seven Girls Gone' is a complex mystery whose characters are as intriguing as the storyline.” —The Denver Post
When nobody will talk and corruption runs deep, turning to outsiders is the only way to make sure women stop disappearing…
For three years, women have been disappearing—and eventually turning up dead in the small bayou town of St. Augustine, Louisiana. Police detective Beau Hebert is the only one who seems to care, but with every witness quickly silenced and a corrupt police department set on keeping the cases unsolved, Beau’s investigation stalls at every turn.
With nobody else to trust, Beau calls in a favor from his friend on the FBI’s Mobile Response Team. While LAPD detective Kara Quinn works undercover to dig into the women’s murders and team leader Matt Costa officially investigates the in-custody death of a witness, Beau might finally have a chance at solving the case.
But in a town where everyone knows everyone, talking gets you killed and secrets stay buried, it’s going to take the entire team working around the clock to unravel the truth. Especially when they discover that the deep-seated corruption and the deadly drug-trafficking ring at the center of it all extends far beyond the small-town borders.

Book 5: The Missing Witness
Bestseller Brennan's overloaded fourth Costa and Quinn novel (after 2022's The Wrong Victim) takes FBI special agent Matt Costa, head of the agency's Mobile Response Team, and LAPD officer Kara Quinn to Broussard Parish, the heart of the Louisiana bayou, at the request of Beau Hebert, a small-town police detective. Seven young women have gone missing in recent years. Of those whose bodies have been found, one has been stabbed to death and four asphyxiated. All had drugs in their system. Beau's investigation has been stymied by a corrupt police chief, and his only hope of bringing the women's killer to justice lies with the MRT unit. The many moving parts of the plot, which include a plethora of suspects, a wide assortment of crimes, and an encounter or two with gators in the swamp, collide in a heap of a finale. Meanwhile, the personal relationship between Costa and Quinn continues to creep forward at a snail's pace. Will Quinn continue to resist admitting a romantic commitment? Romantic suspense fans will want to stay tuned to find out.
