The Girl Who Disappeared Twice #3 Forensic Instincts
Krissy struggled to get away from the cruel kidnappers. Her mom was only several feet away, and she couldn’t hear her scream and squirm in terror as the snatchers hurriedly whisked her away in an ugly van. She was scared and distraught. But not nearly broken enough as her mother who felt the loss of her dear daughter down to her feeble knees. Judge Hope Willis hated herself for driving away a little too soon. If Willis had only looked back, then Judge Willis would have seen the vehicle that her daughter was determined to get out.

Judge Hope Willis frantically calls the tough investigators from Forensic Instincts to help bring back her daughter grasping at any hope for Krissy’s rescue. Casey woods understands her duress, and she teams up with her renegade sleuths who sometimes use unconventional means to get what they want. These are not your ordinary investigators. Casey is an ex-Navy SEAL and a tech wizard gifted with natural skills. Hope’s husband is against the idea of hiring bad cops to go after her daughter. Will Krissy survive this horrible ordeal?

Casey begins her investigations at the victim’s house. She is gifted with intuition and quickly discerns people’s characters within minutes of meeting with them. She quickly discovers Krissy’s father’s nervousness with guilt written all over his face. He seems dodgy and sweaty despite the cold weather outside. As the team of forensics gathers facts and pieces towards the girl’s disappearance, time is running out, and Krissy must come back home alive, at all costs. Too many secrets, unanswered questions, and suspicions that the forensics must piece together to solve this case.

Hope must raise $250,000 to see her child again. She is supposed to deliver the money without raising any suspicions or contacting the authorities. She foolishly obliges, but Casey tails her to the drop point without alerting her team at the FBI offices. The plot goes southwards, and Hope gets played after paying the cash and not getting her daughter back. There are a lot of inconsistencies and imprudent mistakes that contributed to the failed rescue attempt. Not so good for a start, let’s hope the next series produces enough juice to keep readers hooked on the narrative.

It was riveting and enjoyable to the last chapter. The characters are likable, though a little obnoxious but bearable nevertheless. If you like complex and unpredictable thriller books, then you should read this book.

The Stranger You Know #3 Forensic Instincts

Even while behind bars, Glen knows no boundaries as he keeps on tormenting Casey with more murders and threatening her of suffering the same fate.

Written in the third person, the author reveals the characters motives and frame of mind. In this particular book, Claire the psychic powers help advance the case through her intuitive skills.
