True crime writer Olivia Cruz is mysteriously abducted from her home in the middle of the night. Her disappearance at first goes unnoticed until she misses several appointments and her boyfriend, private investigator Lincoln Sharp, sees the subtle clues she left behind that point to her not leaving her house willingly. With the help of his partner Lance Kruger and attorney Morgan Dane, Sharp explores Olivia’s latest crime subjects for insights into who might have taken her.
Since we were witness to Olivia’s abduction, it was never a question of if but why and by whom. Sharp and team doggedly pursue the two cases she was investigating, as well as the people she was most recently in contact with. They’re led down some dangerous and curious paths, some fruitful and some dead ends. Even though neither Sharp or Lance are currently members of law enforcement, this felt like a police procedural, which I really liked. They also stayed within the lines for a change, (well, with one big exception), making this read more plausibly than some of their past antics.
This is the last book in the series and it was a fitting end as Sharp, Lance and Morgan worked with true precision as a team. I could envision their practice succeeding going forward, professionally and personally as they are now family. Lance & Morgan’s wedding loomed in the background and his acceptance as stepfather to her three girls provided some sweet moments. I’ve enjoyed this series and liked how this one concluded. I’ve listened to all the stories and am glad I chose this format as the narrator is a great storyteller who helped create even more tension and excitement when the story went in that direction. She made for an enjoyable listening experience. I’m sort of sad to see the series end but it feels right.
