The Nikki Boyd Files
Lisa Harris
ISBN: 978-0800724177
September 2015/304 pages/$14.99

The first 48 hours are the most critical.

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.

"Filled with red herrings and heart-pounding danger, Vendetta will leave readers anxiously awaiting Nikki Boyd's next adventure."--Irene Hannon, bestselling author of the Private Justice series

Oh. Wow. Lisa Harris quickly vaulted onto my list of favorite authors a couple of years ago when I read one of her books, and this one is her best yet. From the opening scene to the final sentences, I was swept up into this story. Every time I thought I had a handle on what was happening or had figured out the answer, the story took another turn and I was once again holding my breath with a white-knuckled hold on the book. Harris keeps up a rapid pace in this heart-pounding suspense, and the amount of adrenaline and coffee required by Nikki and her team would keep me awake for a month! I could not put this one down and read it in an afternoon/evening. Fair warning: the first chapter of book 2 is in the back of the book. I read it and now I am already on pins and needles waiting for its release next year! Don't miss this book and this series!
