Nikki Boyd, an investigator for the Tennessee Bureau of Missing Persons, might not normally examine homicides, but when a complicated case including several dead and several missing involves a suburban street in her jurisdiction, she joins the team as they race against the clock to solve the mystery. To further confound matters, Nikki discovers her friend, Tyler Grant, seems to be involved somehow in the case. As the hours tick away, more bodies make an appearance and the clues seem to lead the team in circles. And Nikki must solve the case before the killer sets his sights on her.
The second installment in the Nikki Boyd Files is exciting and fast paced. The action starts on page one and does not stop until the very last page. Although reading the first novel in this series is not required, it does help give more background on the main character, Nikki, who is easy to like. Her passion for her work is driven by a sad family situation and makes her a realistic heroine. The romance is tastefully done and is not rushed; their dialogue and their camaraderie prove the strength in their relationship as they connect over difficult pasts. This action packed thriller is full of surprises and fun to read. Highly recommended!
