FIND HER (Detective D.D. Warren #8)

FIND HER                                                LISA GARDNER

Flora Dane is a victim. 
Seven years ago, carefree college student Flora was kidnapped while on spring break. For 472 days, Flora learned just how much one person can endure.

Flora Dane is a survivor.
Miraculously alive after her ordeal, Flora has spent the past five years reacquainting herself with the rhythms of normal life, working with her FBI victim advocate, Samuel Keynes. She has a mother who’s never stopped loving her, a brother who is scared of the person she’s become, and a bedroom wall covered with photos of other girls who’ve never made it home.

Flora Dane is reckless. 
. . . or is she? When Boston detective D. D. Warren is called to the scene of a crime—a dead man and the bound, naked woman who killed him—she learns that Flora has tangled with three other suspects since her return to society. Is Flora a victim or a vigilante? And with her firsthand knowledge of criminal behavior, could she hold the key to rescuing a missing college student whose abduction has rocked Boston? When Flora herself disappears, D.D. realizes a far more sinister predator is out there. One who’s determined that this time, Flora Dane will never escape. And now it is all up to D. D. Warren to find her.

HUBBY'S REVIEW:
This is a story that starts and begins with a pace that wants to make you keep your children locked up inside your home for 24-7, but that is not possible. Flora Dane was kidnapped or missing for 472 days during a spring break while she was a college student. Never to have her easy carefree life back. Now when detective D.D. Warren comes to what the police is thinking was an abduction but the female was able to free herself but the person died. Flora will not talk to anyone until Samuel Keyes shows up who is from the FBI and was the first person who talked to her after her ordeal. D.D. believes that she is a murder suspect until later when they find evidence of the man being involved in unsolved missing person cases. When they go to Fiona’s home they find a pristine place, but also pictures of missing girls from the area. They also find that she tracks men that she thinks are suspects and puts herself in situations that would make her a victim but because of training she has done she can turn the tables on these men. This all changes when they realize that Flora is missing again and they do not have any clues. Now the clock is ticking and D.D. and her team are trying to put all of the pieces together and there is also another girl missing as well. During this ordeal you go back through the memory of Flora’s first kidnap. Her emotions, how she stayed alive, what she learned, what she would do if she got rescued. This part of the story was just an added bonus and added to the story. As you go along you really don’t have a clue you took her and when you do find out you smack your forehead. This is a fantastic book well written with amassing characters and keeps you going to the end. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 5 stars.
