Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Another outing for DI Sarah Quinn finds the intrepid cop squaring off against her old adversary, journalist Caroline King. When Caroline’s oldest friend, schoolteacher Olivia Kent, goes missing, Caroline is naturally concerned about her friend’s safety, but first and foremost, she’s a journalist eager to get a story, and if Olivia has been kidnapped, tortured, raped, or murdered, the headlines Caroline can write will be her top priority. Not only does DI Quinn have to cope with Caroline’s ambitions and the challenge of the case—Is Olivia really missing, or did she willingly disappear?—she also has to deal with Olivia’s battle-ax of a mother, who will stop at nothing to make sure her daughter is found. A series of bizarre notes leads Quinn, with Caroline hot on her heels, to a potential suspect. But then the case stalls, and Quinn’s only alternative is to team up with Caroline to find Olivia. Humorous banter, plenty of red herrings, a twisty-turny plot, and a surprise ending teamed with a likable, all-too-human heroine make this an entertaining read. --Emily Melton
