What the publisher says:
Detective Josie Quinn is horrified when she’s called to the house of a mother who had her newborn baby snatched from her arms.
A woman caught fleeing the scene is Josie’s only lead, but when questioned it seems this mysterious girl doesn’t know who she is, where she’s from or why she is so terrified…
Is she a witness, a suspect, or the next victim?
As Josie digs deeper, a letter about a mix-up at a fertility clinic links the nameless girl and the missing child to a spate of killings across the county. Josie is faced with an impossible decision: should she risk the life of one innocent child to save many others… or can she find another way?
The Girl With No Name is nail-biting, twisty and impossible to put down. If you love gripping thrillers from Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine, you’ll be hooked.
What I say:
Lisa Regan was a new author to me and I wasn’t sure what to expect from this novel. I was quickly sucked into the story as Josie began to investigate the case of a missing woman and her baby. Not that unusual for a police officer perhaps, but this missing woman was the reason Josie’s first marriage had broken down. The encounter with an unknown young woman adds to the mystery, especially when it seems that she has links with Luke, Josie’s fiance.
The mystery ramps up as it seems that notable figures from around the town are intent on covering up their possible involvement with the missing woman. As the investigation deepens the story twists and turns and Josie’s doubts about her fiance grow.
As a heroine Josie is fierce, determined and most importantly likeable. She is not perfect and this makes her all the more believable. The small town America setting is an interesting one and allows for relationships between many types of character. Despite being the second book, this can be read out of order as there is enough explanation of the back story to understand the character.
