Cry Mercy is the story of the first case the foundation takes on. But first they need staff.
Ann Nolan is a police officer with the Silver Hills, California police department. When she learns of a rumor on the streets, that the Mexican drug lord Anthony Navarro, is looking for his only child and is willing to pay handsomely for the information. His child is the same child that Ann legally adopted four years earlier. Fearing for her child, Ann fills out an online application to work for the Mercy Street Foundation as an investigator. With the help of her best friend and the chief of police, she assumes the identity of a fallen officer, Emme Caldwell. And heads east to the small town of Conroy, Pennsylvania. And hopefully a safe place for her and Chloe.
Nick Perone's niece, Belinda has been missing for five months, the police have run out of leads and they have other cases that need their attention. So in desperate need for some sort of answers, Nick submits an application for help from the new foundation to search for missing persons.
He and "Emme" work closely together and following up on a lead, they learn that Belinda has been in contact with other children like herself. Children whose mother's used the same sperm donor. Donor 1735. As they get closer to the answers of Belinda's whereabouts, Emme learns that she has traded one monster for another. And this one is determined to put an end to her meddling.
This story deals with a cold case. There is a lot of footwork and digging for information. For me this book dragged. But once they get on the right tract, it picked up and was really good. Fast paced and intense. If you can get through the first several chapters it's a great story.
We also learn more about Robert's missing wife and his infant son. Some questions are answered but those answers lead to more questions.
Overall I liked the book, it wasn't the best in the series but it was a good read. I'm looking forward to the next one.
I liked Mallory in "Mercy Street" bur she was a bit of a bitch in this one. She was grouchy the entire book. And I missed her interaction with Charlie.
It seems rather far-fetched that with all of Robert's money and resources, no one came upon the wreckage of his wife's car and that Susanna could find it after two years. Just another unbelievable aspect of this book.
Really liked "Cry Mercy" but this one didn't do it for me. Hope the next one is better.
