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.

First Thought when Finished: I can see why Girl Missing is what Tess Gerritsen calls a "bridge" novel. The mystery was strong, there was a romance, but the characters are more along the lines of her more recent novels (takes awhile for you to warm up to them but when you like them they are fantastic).

Overall Thoughts: I really enjoyed reading Girl Missing. I knew that Tess had written romantic suspense in the past but had never tried them. Tess is a brilliant mystery writer and her case work is stellar. The methodical way she takes you step by step through solving the crime with the characters is a big reason she is one of my favorites. In Girl Missing, the case was super strong and fun to figure out. I wasn't a fan of the romance but also didn't think it distracted from the story. This is early Tess but still very good Tess!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Susan Ericksen / Length: 8 hrs and 10 mins


I am a fan of Susan's narration. She has a great tone for procedural books (she does the JD Robb series too) and strong/smart women are right up her alley. She did a very good job with Girl Missing!

Final Thoughts: I would recommend this to fans of Tess even if you aren't a fan of romance. It was a darn good case!

If you like Rizzoli & Isles

From the author of the Rizzoli & Isles books that are now a TV show as well, this is an older book reissued and updated. It has a nice intro and post book interview with Tess Gerritsen. Like Maura Isles, Cat Novak is a Medical Examiner in the northeast. Although that's about as much as they have in common. I really liked this herione and wish there were more Cat Novak book out there. This book has a little science, a little police action, and a little romance. A delightful afternoon read.
