Vendetta
Lisa Harris
Revell

No one needs to push Nikki Boyd to excel on the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force. The case of her own missing sister, still unsolved after ten years, is the driving force in her work. When a Polaroid photo of a missing girl shows up at a crime scene, Nikki quickly recognizes similarities to the past. The closer she gets to the abductor, the more she feels this case has become personal, and she is not the hunter . . . but the hunted.

With this explosive first book in The Nikki Boyd Files, award-winning author Lisa Harris takes you on a fast-paced pursuit of justice that will have you holding your breath until the heart-stopping finish.


     Having read the last two books in Lisa Harris's previous series, I decided to try this one, especially because the cover looked mysterious and eye-catching. Yes, I judge books by their covers. All the time.

     Lisa Harris is good at building suspense, but I wasn't truly captured by the writing, which seemed a little basic, as did the plot (and the ending was very unsatisfying for me, as well- I didn't like the way the villain turned out.) The characterizations didn't stand out, but I felt they were a little better done here than in her previous books.

     That being said, I don't read a lot of modern thriller-esque fiction, so even though this wasn't amazing, I did enjoy it for a light read. Also, it inspired me to look on my phone and make sure my camera's GPS was off so creepy people can't stalk me from my photos that I post online. (Not that I make a great habit of doing that...)

     But thanks anyway.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Haven't read this one yet, but we have it. In all likelihood, my mother will read it before I do since it's an Amazon preorder and not a publisher book. :)
