The Missing – Chris Mooney (Darby McCormick Book 1) – Genre – Crime / Police
Blurb: Darby McCormack was in high school when she first encountered the killer: someone murdered a woman in the woods where Darby and her two best friends were partying. His race to silence the witnesses was sure-footed and violent – but somehow Darby survived.
Twenty-five years later, Darby is a crime-scene investigator for the Boston Police Department, and a chilling case – a woman’s late-night abduction – has her uncovering strange leads to missing women, past and present. As forensic clues lead her closer to a psychopath called the Traveler, Darby must finally resolve the nightmare of her past and come face-to-face with a killer who is determined to keep the missing – and the horrors they endured at his hands – from ever coming to light.
My Review: Take 1 feisty female CSI investigator with a dark background, add 1 (or 2) twisted serial killers, sprinkle with tonnes of gruesome deaths, add a twist towards the end and voilà… the perfect recipe for a brilliant new series of books. Thank you Chris Mooney I am now a huge fan!
