Review: Vanishing Point by Lisa Harris

To Purchase

Detective Garrett Addison and FBI Agent Jordan Lambert team up to find a serial killer before he strikes again, but what if everything that was believed to be true about the Angel Abductor is false?

My Thoughts:

Vanishing Point is a story that I have been waiting for a long time for. Part of the Nikki Boyd series, we finally are given a detailed look at the crisis that drove Nikki to the law enforcement leaving behind her career as a school teacher. This story starts a few years before Nikki’s sister is kidnapped and goes through present day (probably about 12 years overall) and we are given a look at the cases of the previous girls who were taken by the so called Angel Abductor. Whew! This was a very suspenseful book and we get to know the local crime scene agent Garrett and FBI agent Jordan and their trials and frustrations as they race against time to find this very evil individual.

This was a maddening book not only for the detectives and the families, but for the reader as well. Lisa Harris really made her bad guy quite reprehensible and one of the worst ones in all the books I have read so far. He did everything perfect and from the start you could imagine the fear these young girls probably experienced. The absolute anguish of the parents and the desperation of the law enforcement only added to the intense message of the book as to why such an evil person can even exist and do what he has been doing and where is God in all of this?

We also are treated to the romance of Garrett and Jordan and the immense struggles they had effecting their relationship. At times I felt as hopeless as all of these characters and I am glad that we finally received a conclusion to the story of the kidnapping of Nikki’s sister, Sarah.

I received a copy of this book for free. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
