Publisher's Summary

THE FIRST BODY IS A MYSTERY.
She's young. She's beautiful. And her corpse, laid out in the office of Boston medical examiner Cat Novak, betrays no secrets - except for a notebook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside.
THE NEXT BODY IS A WARNING.
When a second victim is discovered, Cat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the city streets: a shadowy madman without mercy or apparent motive. The police are sceptical. The mayor won't listen. And Cat's chief suspect is one of the city's most prominent citizens.
THE FINAL BODY...MIGHT BE HERS.
With the death toll rising, Cat races to expose a deadly conspiracy and the brutal killer at its heart - a killer who will stalk her from the dangerous streets of the inner city to the corridors of power. Because he's closer than she ever dreamt. And every move she makes could be her very last.

You Should Know...

I have not finished this book, and I admit it is not bad, but anyone who purchases it should be aware that this is not a new book. It is retitled from a book written in 1998 (I think--the author tells you at the beginning of the book).

It was written before the author moved into suspense, so it is basically a romance novel with some suspense.

There is no way of knowing this from the information available on Audible. I consider this rather unethical, as I was not looking for an old romance novel, but rather one of the excellent suspense novels that this author currently writes.

okay

I actually did not guess the bad guy, but it was pretty predictable. I wish I'd known before I bought the book that it's an old book, just repackaged. I wanted a brand new book, but at least I had not read it already.
Not the best, not the worst.

Not as good as Tess’s later thrillers

This is Tess Gerritsen’s first novel moving from romance to crime thrillers and combines a bit of both.
A few holes in the story but this may have been down to the author updating the original novel. A good narrator and on the whole held my attention to the end but personally I prefer the Rizzoli & Isles series of books.

Poor story

Would you try another book written by Tess Gerritsen or narrated by Susan Ericksen?

I have read a lot of Tess Gerristen books and thoroughly enjoyed them all. But this one was far from her usual offering. Didn't really like the narrater either.

What will your next listen be?

Listening to a Patricia Gibbney book 'The Missing Ones' which I'm really enjoying.

Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Ericksen’s performances?

Probably not.

What character would you cut from Girl Missing?

Just didn't think much of the story over all.

Great narration for a good story

I found the plot of the book and the characters reasonably good but fairly stock standard. The narration was excellent. Susan Erickson always does the best narration. She really brings the characters to life and immerses you in the story.
