Vanishing Girls is the first book in the Detective Josie Quinn series and this is in fact the first book that I have read by this author and certainly wont be my last. Vanishing Girls is a brilliant start to a new series which I couldn't put down and devoured it in one day.
The book starts off with one chilling prologue that left me wanting more. Set in a small town of Denton Pennsylvania, a young girl Isabelle Coleman goes missing But then Detective Josie Quinn finds an unresponsive damaged girl that they didn't know had gone missing. Fearing that other girls are in danger It is a race against time to catch the killer and find Isabelle alive.
Josie is one hell of a strong feisty character who is stubborn and very independent which I love. There is plenty of character build up and really do get to her. She hasn't had the best of luck with her personal life and her job. Josie is actually suspended from work but that doesn't stop her getting involved in this case. Has the story unfolds we learn that she is a very determined woman and wont give up. I love everything about her
This story will have you on the edge of your seat willing Josie along it is full of twists and turns . Without giving to much away the last 25% really did it for me when it all picked up speed and became very gritty with one hell of an OMG moment.
This is a must read for Karin Slaughter fans and cannot wait to read what is in store next I highly recommend it giving it 4 well deserved stars.
