I love a good mystery thriller book. It;s my favorite genre, my fave authors being Lisa Unger, Alex Kava and Lisa Gardner. I haven’t tried any of Johansen’s novels and she has been recommended to me. I received a copy through NetGalley and this is so not my cup of tea. The conversations are redundant and over-detailed. The characters were limited in depth and IMO, boring. There’s young girls being kidnapped and sexually assaulted and that in itself was written like it was an after thought. I agree with a reader who stated “If you bring up something so horrendous don’t brush it away.”
Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
