This is the third in the Nikki Boyd series. She is an agent with the missing persons division of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation. While this book reads well on its own, I suggest reading the earlier books in the series to understand Nikki's passion for finding missing persons.
This novel has a good combination of action and investigative techniques. Nikki is a capable investigator but she is plagued with disrupting thoughts. I did get a bit tired of Nikki thinking of something in the past, then someone saying something jerking her back to the present. Nikki is not quite the effective policewoman I am used to having in novels with female leads. Readers who like extended accounts of character thoughts that interrupt the flow of the action will like this novel. Interestingly enough, when Nikki does come out of her thoughts, she rises to the occasion as a good and forceful agent.
This is a good investigative procedural novel. There is also a bit of romance. There is a little Christian influence but it is not strong. I recommend it to readers who do enjoy suspense with a good dose of troubled character thinking as well.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
