person until 2 months prior, when she became very close mouthed about what was going on in her life.Carter finds a couple of ex boyfriends, a few guys who were infatuated with her, a boss that can t

something else at play here.Deputy Carter is like a dog with a bone He s tenacious, and he will not give up until he discovers what happened to the girl Suffering PTSD from his military days and ADHD, he doesn t sleep much He goes over and over and over all the little bit of evidence they have.It s only when he manages to stop a man from kidnapping his daughter does he realize how much danger he s in from all the lies and secrets.There are some twists and turns I didn t see coming Just when I thought I knew where the story was going, the author pulled a fast one and I was hurled into another direction altogether.This is the 10th book in the Richard Carter series THE DAUGHTER works fine as a stand alone There are a few references to things that happened in previous books, but not enough to keep me from enjoying this one.The book is very well written The main characters come across as totally believable I would definitely like to start at the beginning of the series to see how they have grown into what who they are now Many thanks to the author and to Wordslinger Publicity who provided a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review flag 7 likesLike see review View all 12

in this book was some of the back story I understand that this book is 10 in a series and so I expected it, but it left me guessing as to what happened to Jill and with Robert Maybe in the future I can find the time to read the earlier books and get the answers that now are bugging me about these characters.The ending to this book did leave one big question Shara alive Its just one of those
