THE GIRL WHO DISAPPEARED TWICE
Kane kicks off Forensic Instincts, her new series about a team of maverick investigators, with this fascinating story with sharply drawn characters, fast-paced dialogue, dark and dangerous minds, brilliant methodology and the types of cases mystery readers campaign to get.
After years of coming to terms with her own family’s tragedy, family court judge Hope Willis appears to have it all — a good husband, career and, most of all, her beautiful daughter Krissy. All that’s going to be savaged under a magnifying glass of investigation when Krissy goes missing. Understanding the limits of official channels of investigation better than most, and though her husband is dead-set against it, and knowing that minutes mean everything in the case of a missing child, she hires Forensic Instincts. A group of unique talents — a behaviorist, a former Navy SEAL and a techno genius, not bound by the same rules as law enforcement — they get results. (MIRA, Jun., 400 pp., $24.95)
