One girl found dead. Another girl gone...

Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever...

When a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer.

No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered. This time the killer’s distinctive mark is plain to see, and matching scratches on the first victim’s skeleton make Robyn suspect she’s searching for a serial killer.

As Robyn closes in on the killer’s shocking hunting ground, another girl goes missing, and this time it’s someone close to her own heart.

Robyn can’t lose another loved one. Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced before it’s too late?

Holy Missing Girls Batman by Carol Wyer. Ok, that’s not the real title of the book, but that’s how I felt after I read it. WOW.

They’re back…

DI Robyn Carter and her extraordinary team are back. While pouncing on a self-storage locker during an apparent drug bust, they find a large trunk. They open it believing they will find illegal substances, only to find a dead girl. While they work to uncover the identity of the girl, another goes missing.

DCI Mulholland has moved on, and DI Carter’s new boss is DCI Flint, and he does not believe that the missing person case has anything to do with their dead girl. So what’s a girl to do? Go rogue and investigate it anyway. And it’s a good thing she did.  DI Robyn Carter’s spunk and tenacity are what I like the most about her. She follows her hunches and is usually right.

Anna and Mitz are back and cuter than ever. I like how their friendship has blossomed during this book.  I enjoy both of their characters immensely.

Sweet, Sweet Ross.

And ROSS. We mustn’t forget Robyn’s sweet, sweet cousin, the PI who will do anything to help her. At the end of the book, Ms. Wyer mentions that many fans have asked about Ross having his own series. I wholeheartedly agree. He would make for a fantastic private investigator series.

Carol Wyer’s The Missing Girls, as usual, is a roller coaster ride with lots of twists and turns. While I did figure out “whodunnit” early on, it still didn’t take away the intrigue surrounding the events that unfolded.

And what a freaking cliff hanger at the end! Please tell me you will continue that storyline, Ms. Carol Wyer. Pretty Please. With cherries on top.

As with all of Carol Wyer’s books I’ve read, The Missing Girls is five no-brainer stars for me. I simply can’t wait for the next installment. Same bat time, same bat channel.

Preorder this little zinger today for only $0.99 – you won’t have to wait too long, it’s coming out in only a month.

Thank you Carol Wyer, Netgalley, and Bookouture for an advanced copy of this book. My opinions are totally mine.
