Vanishing Girls by Katia Lief
Posted by Krystal Larson at 3:18 PM Sunday, July 1, 2012
For two years the "Working Girl Killer" hunted in Manhattan, brutally slaughtering nine city prostitutes.
And now the fiend has crossed the river.
Former cop-turned-p.i. Karin Schaeffer receives the call meant for her detective husband Mac on a Sunday night: two females found on a Brooklyn street. The first is an eleven-year-old girl, the apparent victim of a hit-and-run. But it's the second body that truly chills the blood--a young corpse bearing the grisly, unmistakable signature of a serial slayer who has eluded the NYPD for years.
But there's something frighteningly different about these latest atrocities--a kink that is leading Schaeffer's unofficial investigation down strange and twisting alleys where nothing is as it originally seems. And the haunted p.i., who once lost everything to a psychopath, is suddenly facing the darkness once again . . . when the horror strikes too close to home and those she loves are in danger of vanishing forever.
There are some mystery novels that are impossible to put down. This is the latest book in the You Are Next series and it is fantastic. Vanishing Girls is enticing and surprising. The mystery starts when Karin Schaeffer takes a call meant for her detective husband who is sick with a bad case of the flu. Two women have been killed in Brooklyn and the perpetrator might be the notorious “Working Girl Killer” who has been murdering prostitutes in Manhattan for the last two years. As Schaeffer further investigates, she begins to wonder if this isn’t the Working Girl Killer, but a copycat. The next murder is close to her home, and the pressure is on to solve the case before the killer can strike again.
The characters are all interesting and keep you on your toes and the plot is enticing. Anyone could appreciate this novel and enjoy reading. To fully understand all the characters and previous occurrences, readers should get the first books in the series. I give this novel five out of five stars.
