No one needs to push Nikki Boyd to excel on the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force. The case of her own missing sister, still unsolved after ten years, is the driving force in her work. When a Polaroid photo of a missing girl shows up at a crime scene, Nikki quickly recognizes similarities to the past. The closer she gets to the abductor, the more she feels this case has become personal, and she is not the hunter . . . but the hunted.
With this explosive first book in The Nikki Boyd Files, award-winning author Lisa Harris takes you on a fast-paced pursuit of justice that will have you holding your breath until the heart-stopping finish.
What a compelling read! Intrigue and action explode off the page and it's hard to believe that everything happens in only a few days. Anyone remember the TV show, Without a Trace? Well reading Vendetta was like watching an episode. From conflicting clues that have to be tracked down to the camaraderie amongst the team to the nerve-racking moments when you're afraid to look. This one literally kept me reading into the wee hours. I'm feeling a bit slap happy this morning as a result. Yawn. But it was worth every sleep deprived moment.
This is the first book in The Nikki Boyd Files series and it looks like the romance is going to develop gradually throughout the three books. In Vendetta, Nikki and Tyler are friends bound together through mutual grief. The intimacy of their friendship is breathtaking and I can see it developing into a powerfully deep love story by the time this series winds up. Really looking forward to that.
A stirring faith thread winds its way through the plot as both Nikki and Tyler grapple with a sense of failure in their pasts and the age old question 'Why do bad things happen to good people?' Profound wisdom leaps off the page in various scenes. Like this:
"But I'm starting to realize that as much as I've battled with God, nothing that happens here on this earth changes who God is." (p. 276)
Soul-satisfying and heart-pounding from beginning to end.
