**BLOG BLITZ** The Girl With No Name by Lisa Regan
Reviews / 19th April 2018

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…
