Find Her by, Lisa Gardner
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Flora Dane is a victim.
Seven years ago, carefree college student Flora was kidnapped while on spring break. For 472 days, Flora learned just how much one person can endure.
Flora Dane is a survivor.
Miraculously alive after her ordeal, Flora has spent the past five years reacquainting herself with the rhythms of normal life, working with her FBI victim advocate, Samuel Keynes. She has a mother who’s never stopped loving her, a brother who is scared of the person she’s become, and a bedroom wall covered with photos of other girls who’ve never made it home.
Flora Dane is reckless.
. . . or is she? When Boston detective D. D. Warren is called to the scene of a crime—a dead man and the bound, naked woman who killed him—she learns that Flora has tangled with three other suspects since her return to society. Is Flora a victim or a vigilante? And with her firsthand knowledge of criminal behavior, could she hold the key to rescuing a missing college student whose abduction has rocked Boston? When Flora herself disappears, D.D. realizes a far more sinister predator is out there. One who’s determined that this time, Flora Dane will never escape. And now it is all up to D. D. Warren to find her.
Flora Dane, kidnap survivor, she came back safely, but is she really okay? What happened that last day of her kidnapping? And what is Flora doing now, shouldn’t she be happily living her life after 472 days in the hands of a kidnapper but that isn’t what Flora is up to at all, does she have a death wish? Or is she just reckless? Does she wish her life had ended or does she want to end other peoples?
DD has quite a case on her hands she has one missing girl and now she’s called to a crime scene where the Victim? Perpetrator? Is a former kidnapping victim who is naked and tied up and there is a dead body of a man on the floor. What is going on with Flora Dane? You know DD will figure it out eventually!
Yet again Lisa Gardner gives us a victim who we feel bad for but is she as much of a victim as she would like you to believe? Is Flora a victim or a vigilante?
This is another great thriller from Gardner that kept me on the edge of my seat all the way to the end. Flora is kind of an anti-hero; I can’t say I liked her but the way Gardner writes her makes you care.
The reason this review is mostly made up of questions, is because they are questions you will ask yourself while you are reading, also when you are up till 3 am because you can’t put this book down, well you’ll have questions!
I love Lisa Gardner’s books she always keeps me guessing and keeps me on my toes for clues and little things that are said and this one is no exception, DD has her hands full with this case between the confusing Flora, the missing girl, Flora’s FBI victim advocate, Samuel Keynes and Flora’s mother. DD is trying to figure out just what the heck is going on before anyone else dies or goes missing.
I don’t want to delve too much deeper into this because I want you to enjoy every moment of this fabulous book.
