Synopsis: Best be nimble, best be quick, I’m right here and you’re my pick…
The last thing Ford Elkhart remembers is walking his girlfriend back to her university dormitory. Now he’s lying tied and gagged on a cold, dark floor, with only one chance to escape before he ends up like the bones surrounding him…
Assistant State’s Attorney Daphne Montgomery is devastated by her son’s disappearance, and is immediately convinced that his kidnapping is
connected to the white supremacist she’s just had jailed for murder.
FBI Special Agent Joseph Carter isn’t so sure – especially when he learns that Ford’s girlfriend is also missing. Is Ford’s abduction payback for Daphne’s courtroom victory? Or is he a pawn in an even more dangerous game?
I’m giving this one 4 stars.
Did You Miss Me? has a well paced and well connected story line running through it with a super creepy undertone keeping the atmosphere of the book low down in a dark scary corner even though the leading lady, Daphne, is fairly light and frothy character.
I say light and frothy but as with all good heroine’s she has well and truly been through the mill and has a well developed core of steel running underneath all those piles of blonde curls.
I enjoyed the story, managed to keep up with all the sub plots and back stories and found it held my attention even though it’s a pretty long book. There were a few occasions where I felt the pace dipped a bit but I was always keen to pick it up again and, as is often the case, some of the plot strands were slow whereas some where real page turners.
For me this book had a bit of a Karin Slaughter vibe about it, so if you enjoy her books then you’ll love this one.
