AUTHOR: Lisa Harris
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.
Bestselling and award-winning author Lisa Harris unveils an unforgettable story of a case that has haunted the public and law enforcement for more than a decade. Fans of the Nikki Boyd Files will thrill to finally discover what actually happened to Nikki's sister, Sarah. New readers will become instant fans after devouring this chilling tale.
Having read the three Nikki Boyd Files books, Vendetta, Missing and Pursued, I anticipated another fast-paced, enjoyable thriller with Vanishing Point. While it is definitely fast-paced, I did not enjoy it nearly as much as I’d expected. Seems strange to say, but I think the reason is that this story is too realistic and too well-written. The horrible killings of young girls, their parents’ anguish, and the trauma to the hero and heroine disturbed me—but I couldn’t quit reading.
The on-again/off-again relationship between Garrett and Jordan frustrated me, too, but their reasons for their actions were understandable. I had to keep checking the dates for each chapter, as the timeline jumped quite a bit—needed for this story, but jarring nevertheless.
In spite of those little issues, I recommend Vanishing Point to those who enjoy tense thrillers with a touch of romance. It earns four stars. I received a copy of this book from its publisher.
