Jane Perry, PI is once again chasing a monster. A beautiful young girl is missing and the whole state is turning over every rock to find her. When none other than a free-spirited grandma drifts into Jane’s office and offers her another case to rock the news. Jane could care less about the news but she does care about the missing child. Especially since she just flubbed her own case as is at loose ends now that the new sergeant in town has taken credit for her hard work. All Jane has to do is to sort through the muck and the lies that everyone – including her client- is issuing to find the missing girl.

Could this be the next on a serial killers list? Is this a ritual slaying for a prophetic madman? Or has the girl just decided to live her life elsewhere?

Jane needs to find out before she can’t hold out any longer.

My Thoughts

WOW! Honestly, I wasn’t sure I’d like this book. I mean I loved the trailer but then after reading the first couple of chapters I put it down and walked away afraid it would go on the dnf stack. But I just couldn’t get the characters out of my head. I wanted needed to know what happened and where Charlotte was. I try not to get so wrapped up in books but I just couldn’t help it. I could not put it down.

I loved the way the story was able to call out the judgmental and the sacrificial without proclaiming that all were bad. I loved that I could feel the heartache Jane’s abusive nature — the alcoholism, the sarcasm — had on others while still feeling the hurt that caused her to lash out. This was an impressive start from a new to me author. ‘Redemption’ is the second book in the series but I didn’t feel at all like I missed something by not reading the first.

I really disliked the language — there was quite a bit but it was used contextually.

Still unsure? Read the first three chapters here.
