I am super excited to share for my 5 star review for The Missing Girls by Carol Wyer today on Blog Blitz.
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?
An utterly gripping and darkly compelling detective thriller that will have fans of Robert Dugoni, Angela Marsons and James Patterson hooked from the very start. You will not guess the ending!
Holy freaking hell what a book…I am still trying to compose myself after devouring this book in one afternoon! Well where do I start….First of all I have to say that Carol moving over to the dark side was the best thing she could of done. After reading Little Girl Lost which is the first one in the Robyn Carter series I was totally blown away. Now three books later I am totally blown away three times over! she doesn’t take no prisoners in this latest installment.
This story starts off with a chapter and a half straight away where I am having an OMG moment. Describing one dark and pulse racing scene,talk about gritty and gripping. Carol certainly knows how to start the story off with a bang.
Flicking between scenes of the victim,police procedure and pathology descriptions that will make the hairs on your neck stand up. Carol weaves one electrifying story where we follow Robyn on the hunt for a killer after a body of a girl is found in a Midlands storage unit. With another girl that goes missing can Robyn find this twisted killer before it’s too late?
I love that it is in set in places that I know. but for those of you that don’t Carol has no problem transporting you there with her descriptions. I absolutely love her style of writing you can feel the emotion and tension with each character throughout the story.
I have to say Robyn is one of my favourite Detectives and that ending….wowsers I cannot wait to see what’s in store for her in the next book.
The Missing Girls is one fast paced, jaw dropping read that is without a doubt Carol’s best book to date. And has just hit my top reads of 2017. I cannot recommend enough giving it 5 massive stars.
As a child Carol Wyer was always moving, and relied on humour to fit in at new schools. A funny short story won her popularity, planting the seed of becoming a writer.
