What begins as the mysterious discovery of a foot wearing pink nail polish in the Pacific Northwest’s Banner Forest quickly escalates into so much more. As Kendall Stark, the sheriff’s detective, and Birdy Waterman, the local pathologist, begin their investigation things seem odd but not as odd as they become. It’s only when Tess Moreau, the town of Kitsap’s notorious hoarder, reports her teen daughter Darby as missing that things begin to heat up. From that point on the story roars forward as new characters are introduced and new crimes uncovered. While it is apparent the two biggest murders, that of Darby Moreau and local man Ted Roberts, are somehow related, it takes intense investigative skills to put it all together.
The mystery of who killed Ted Roberts is certainly the gripping center of the story. Married to Jennifer and step father to Ruby and Micah, he appears mostly as a corpse. But what a corpse he is! His death unravels a plethora of crimes.
Interwoven throughout are hints at the personal histories of both Birdy and Kendall. While they seem inconsequential they are vital to the development of these fascinating women. Thrown together as investigators due to changes within their departments they form an analytical team, each bringing their skills into play as needed.
The seemingly insignificant character of Elan, Birdy’s nephew who appears early in the story, proves to be quite a pivotal addition to the cast.
The unexpected twists and turns are key to Olsen’s ability to captivate his readers. Just when I thought I had the answers, knew who was doing what, I would get a surprise that made my head spin.
There are some very minor editing issues in the book but they in way affected my ability to enjoy the story. As I said from the beginning, I am a Gregg Olsen addict. I have no desire to be cured as I eagerly await my next fix of Olsen fiction.
It kept me guessing. Because of that I have it five stars.
Her teenaged nephew, Elan, had arrived without warning to stay with her. She hope it would help heal her relationship with her sister, Summer, with whom she did not interact. She had seen what real family discord could do & was grateful that hers was just a war of words, or lack thereof.
"Kendall Stark was a homicide detective Birdy liked working with more than the investigators in her unit in the sheriff's office.
I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review.
The Girl in the Woods (A Waterman & Stark Thriller Book 1)
If you like well thought out contemporary crime stories with well developed characters who with the action and plot are all reasonable, rational, and entertaining, you should like this book a lot, as I did. It is available on Kindle Unlimited, and I was disappointed that the subsequent books in this series are not.
I had no idea how it would turn out and loved the suspend and surprise at the end !
I always enjoy reading Gregg' s books and getting to Know his characters. I feel like I know them by the end of the book. Complex story lines that cross back and forth keeps one guessing until the end .I can't wait to read the next book in this series!
Thanks Gregg for some great entertainment !

In Port Orchard, Washington, on a nature trip in Banner Forest, a sixth grader makes a gruesome discovery- a severed foot! Where is the body? Where did it come from? Sheriff's Detective Kendall Stark and Kitsap County Forensic Pathologist Birdy Waterman are assigned to work on the case. I found that Birdy Waterman, the Forensic Pathologist,took complete control of the case, and handled many other detective duties, outside her realm, to bring closure to the case. I felt that Detective Stark, was just interested in the praise and recognition, for solving the mystery. Birdy, also is the one that shows warmth and compassion, but still exhibits strength when required. She comes across as more believable and human, while Detective Stark is cold and removed.
At the same time, Birdy's sixteen year old nephew asks to stay with his aunt for awhile, as he had left his dysfunctional parents. As if Birdy didn't have enough to contend with!
Then another homicide. The victim, Ted Roberts dies suspiciously with the pathologist thinking his wife, Jennifer poisoned him.
The novel is full of twists and turns with two unrelated murders...and a serial killer on the loose, playing a game of cat and mouse. This novel follows two different crimes, with red herrings all over the place. Took a while to connect the two crimes together, and then the big reveal happened at the very end. The author writes well and definitely provides a good solid mystery.
"The Girl in the Woods", is Book 1 of a three part series. The next book, "Now That She's Gone", book 2 in the Waterman and Stark series , to be released in November 2015.
For anyone who enjoys a good solid mystery/crime fiction, I highly recommend this novel.
Anyone who has read and enjoyed the author’s works will enjoy this book as well.
