    Once you get past the improbability of a CSI directing a police detective on how to proceed with his criminal investigation, this is a pretty good book I think some of the reveals, and there were several, were a bit of an overkill but the main protagonist was likeable and the struggles in her home life helped to ground the story somewhat The story maintained a firm suspenseful tone throughout but the bits of humor sprinkled in helped to counter balance the darker parts I do wish that the seco Once you get past the improbability of a CSI directing a police detective on how to proceed with his criminal investigation, this is a pretty good book I think some of the reveals, and there were several, were a bit of an overkill but the main protagonist was likeable and the struggles in her home life helped to ground the story somewhat The story maintained a firm suspenseful tone throughout but the bits of humor sprinkled in helped to counter balance the darker parts I do wish that the secondary characters had been fleshed out a littlebut perhaps that will come as the series progresses

    This was my first book by Chris Mooney but I will definitely look for others by him His writing style reminds me much of James Patterson who I really enjoy It was indeed a fast paced novel that kept me on the edge while I plowed my way thru it At one point in the book, which I was reading in Zurich, Switzerland, I was somewhat spooked when my daughter in law came out of the bathroomthinking that someone was coming into our bedroomwhich we both laughed about shortly afterward The book s This was my first book by Chris Mooney but I will definitely look for others by him His writing style reminds me much of James Patterson who I really enjoy It was indeed a fast paced novel that kept me on the edge while I plowed my way thru it At one point in the book, which I was reading in Zurich, Switzerland, I was somewhat spooked when my daughter in law came out of the bathroomthinking that someone was coming into our bedroomwhich we both laughed about shortly afterward The book starts with 3 teenage girls in the wrong place at the wrong timein the woods where a murder takes place The girls take off, leaving behind some of their items, which allows the killer to locate them2 of the girls die but one, Darby, survives Flash forward 25 years and Darby is now a crime scene investigatorand you can imagine what follows.Definitely worth your time to pick this one up and put on your reading list for the summer I left this book on the train we took between Zurich, Switzerland and Munich, Germany

    I came, I read, I didn t quite conquer.The novel kicked off with quite an action packed first chapter which caught my attention from the start and only continued to progress at a good pace I was sufficiently interested in the characters, the victims and the developments that would follow My issue was solely with the writing style which was clunky, unsubtle and patronising I am quite capable of reading and making connections, therefore when authors feel like they need to spell everything out t I came, I read, I didn t quite conquer.The novel kicked off with quite an action packed first chapter which caught my attention from the start and only continued to progress at a good pace I was sufficiently interested in the characters, the victims and the developments that would follow My issue was solely with the writing style which was clunky, unsubtle and patronising I am quite capable of reading and making connections, therefore when authors feel like they need to spell everything out to me just in case I haven t spotted their little hints it really bugs me The nail in the coffin for me was page 95slipped his fingers around the lips of the plastic sandwich baggies holding the chloroform soaked ragsAt this point, I am aware that he has chloroform soaked rags and therefore he is our suspect as every victim has been chloroformed thus far But do we stop there NoHe always carried them in case he decided to abduct someone while he was on the road and he always carried a bag in each pocket since that night years ago when he grabbed a young girl at the home of the friend who had seen him in the woodsA long, overly wordy and very clunky flashing sign to say, In case you missed the thing about the chloroform rags, this guy is the killer now AND twenty years ago I have already read one of the Darby McCormick books and thoroughly enjoyed it so I would definitely not stop reading the series based on The Missing and would recommend later installments to fans of the genre
