Find Her by Lisa Gardner. Advance Reader Copy (ARC), from Headline, via Bookbridgr included.
Flora Dane was kidnapped and kept captive for 472 days before she was found. Much of that time was spent in a wooden coffin. Flora has spent the five years since her release readjusting to her life. This isn’t easy because everything has changed. Flora isn’t the same person she was before she disappeared. She is a survivor.
Flora knows that the world is full of predators and she is determined to do everything she can to stop them. When she disappears for the second time Detective D.D. Warren is left asking whether, this time, Flora is a victim or a vigilante.
What happens over the course of almost 400 pages is an emotional roller-coaster of a chilling, creepy and twisted tale. The claustrophobia, the fear, the physical and psychological damage felt by kidnapping victims is laid bare.
What lengths will a victim go to in order to survive? What lengths will a survivor go to in order to ensure no-one else has to endure what they did? Can Detective Warren and her colleagues connect the pieces and find Flora and the other missing women before it’s too late?
Find Her is the eighth book in Lisa Gardner’s Detective D.D. Warren series, but they work as standalone novels. Find Her is a tense, well paced, disturbing and compelling read.
