No one needs to push Nikki Boyd to excel on the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force. The case of her own missing sister, still unsolved after ten years, is the driving force in her work. When a Polaroid photo of a missing girl shows up at a crime scene, Nikki quickly recognizes similarities to the past. The closer she gets to the abductor, the more she feels this case has become personal, and she is not the hunter . . . but the hunted.
With this explosive first book in The Nikki Boyd Files, award-winning author Lisa Harris takes you on a fast-paced pursuit of justice that will have you holding your breath until the heart-stopping finish.
This book should come with a warning: Do not begin to read unless you have time to finish it! I made the mistake of starting Vendetta in the late afternoon. I did put it down to go to bed, but woke to finish it in the wee hours of the morning.
How’s this for an opening line? The initial step off the sheer face of a three-hundred-plus-foot drop was always the most terrifying. I was hooked.
Heroine Nikki Boyd and I have almost nothing in common, and yet through the skillful writing of author Lisa Harris, I entered her life—and her danger. Nikki is haunted by her sister’s abduction, and that loss pushes her to seek rescue and justice for other abductees, no matter the personal cost.
The suspense holds tight, and the mystery of the perp’s identity kept me guessing right to the end
I was offered a copy of this book by the publisher and Graf-Martin Communications in return for my honest opinion. Vendetta earns five stars and is highly recommended for anyone who enjoys well-written suspense.
