I found this book absolutely fascinating! I have read the other three books in the series, so I really appreciated the way this story was put together. The novel begins back in the past, with investigators looking into the abductions and deaths of teenage girls. If you have not read the other books in the series, you could still pick up Vanishing Point and read it as a stand alone, however, the emotional impact may be lessened a bit. The entire series deals with gritty details and events that are not for the squeamish reader. I felt that the author handled these descriptions very well, however, some may find the situations hard to read about.
The book occasionally jumped forward in time as the story progressed. This was a necessary storytelling device, in my opinion. The serial abductions and murders took place over a large span of time and this method of moving from one abduction to the next helped the story to keep its forward movement. It also helped to demonstrate the way time seemed to slip through both Special Agent Garrett Addison and Special Agent Jordan Lambert’s fingers. Time marched on as they struggled to discover who was behind the horrors they investigated and it continued to march on as they both questioned what to place first in their lives – career or relationship. This was a riveting story that I could hardly set down.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
During Garrett Addison’s first week on the job as a criminal investigator for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, his team is called out to a murder scene of a young girl. She’s the third victim in a string of disappearances with one thing in common–a Polaroid photo of each victim left behind at the crime scene.
The FBI is pulled into the case to help, and Garrett finds himself working with Special Agent Jordan Lambert, the woman he once loved. When yet another girl dies–number six–Garrett blames himself and believes he doesn’t have what it takes to be an agent. What he’ll discover is that, while he may be done with the killer, the killer is not done with him–or Jordan.
