THE PUBLICATION PAPERBACK BEFORE SHE DISAPPEARED
PAPERBACK PUBLISHED BY CENTURY
Frankie Elkin spends her life doing what no one else will do: searching for missing people the world has stopped looking for.
When the police have given up, when the public no longer remembers, when the media has never paid attention, Frankie gets to work.
A new case brings Frankie to Mattapan, a Boston neighbourhood with a bad reputation. She is searching for Angelique Badeau, a Haitian teenager who vanished from her high school months earlier.
But when Frankie starts asking questions, she hits resistance from the Boston PD and from Angelique‘s wary family.
And soon she realises that the next person to go missing might be her.
The list of books by Lisa Gardner
Unfortunately my Twitter account was totally wrong for the blog tour, so I decided not to do this book as part of the blog tour, therefore I have uploaded several pages of chapter one from my proof copy as part of my review as an extract.
PART OF CHAPTER ONE ( THE FIRST SEVEN PAGES )
ABOUT AUTHOR LISA GARDNER
For her first standalone novel in over a decade, Lisa Gardner’s curiosity was piqued by a BBC article she read about the incredible civilians who dedicate their lives to solving missing cold cases. After exploring more about this amazing group of Internet detectives and amateur P.Is, Lisa was inspired to write about a woman dedicating her life to finding missing people that the police and media too soon forget about. She was also drawn back to her old stomping ground to Boston where she lived for four years in the 90s and spent several weeks exploring the inner– city neighbourhood of Mattapan and it’s uniquely Haitian culture. As with all her novels, Lisa conducted extensive interviews with law enforcement, including a former Superintendent Chief of the Boston Police Force to discover how someone can simply disappear in modern day Boston.
