    Great from the start

    I didn't think it possible for a book in this series to be better than the 2nd one. How wrong I was, wrong footed at every chapter. Now to buy book 4 which I didn't know the series carried on or it would already be in my library like all the other 3 books were. I can't wait to start reading it. I must buy series if you like physiological thrillers

    Stonkingly good read - what a story

    Ho-lee-cow. Awww. You know when you start reading a book, when there is just something in the very first page that captures your attention and draws you right in. Something that compels you onward and makes you keep reading just that one … more … page … That thing that makes you resent having to work, sleep, feed your family or your pets, interact with other humanoids … That. Yep. This book – that reaction. Marvellous. Oh gosh this book is good, but it’s also a little hard to talk about because there is so much I want to say but I don’t want to drop any spoilers. What I can say is that this opens up on most of Robyn’s team being seconded to a drugs raid led by DI Shearer who Robyn has a rather, how shall we put it, strained relationship with. Only what they find in one of the potential storage units is not what they were expecting. Hidden away in an old suitcase is the body of a young woman, horribly disfigured and difficult to identify presenting Robyn with a problem – finding out who she is and who would want her dead. The investigation takes a sinister turn after the team discover that another teenager is missing, but is it the same perpetrator or just an unfortunate coincidence? What it is, is bloody exciting stuff. That opening chapter; the tension, the way in which Carol Wyer sets out quite clearly what is at stake, taking just one short chapter to set up an overwhelming feeling of claustrophobia and dread. If it wasn’t so creepy I’d say it was simply magical. I had no idea who the girl was and yet I was invested. I had no idea who the mystery man was but I was intrigued. I had no idea what had happened to bring us so abruptly to this amazingly tension filled moment in time… but I was sure as hell going to find out. Every chapter counted and there wasn’t one moment when I wasn’t poised, metaphorically gripping the edge of my seat, wanting to know what happens next. Even sensing some of the almost inevitable moments in the novel didn’t detract from the engagement. There was no smugness in knowing that you were right in what you surmised would happen. That was almost a given. What you couldn’t necessarily see was the who or the why, and there are genuinely moments in this book that will both shock and surprise you. The actions of the killer may be grim, but this book has, at it’s heart, a really tragic story, one from which there can be few, if any, happy endings. I love the character of Robyn Carter and Carol Wyer continues to allow her to grow and engage, making me even more invested in her as a character with every new book. She is still hurting from the loss of her fiancé, and trying hard to focus on the positive side of the time they had together, getting to know his no longer quite so young daughter, Amelie. She is tough and driven, with a great level of intuition, but she is also a great team player, as seen by her reluctant truce and almost fledgling friendship that evolves with Shearer throughout the course of the novel. What I like most is that while the tragedy that befell her informs her character, it doesn’t dominate or define it completely. She is totally likeable and relatable and you are rooting for her at every turn. The team are all back and if anything, getting stronger. I love the way in which they play and bounce off one another. Their characters are all developing beautifully and even the good natured banter between them feels natural and genuine. The same can be said of Robyn and her cousin Ross. Even with Shearer amazingly enough. I guess no-one saw that coming. And speaking of not seeing things coming … That ending. Oh my golly. What the heck does that mean for Robyn I wonder. I guess, with hindsight, I should perhaps have anticipated it, but I will happily admit to being totally blindsided. I am totally intrigued now and desperate to see where Carol Wyer takes it from here. When is the next book out again? A thoroughly engrossing, heart stopping and vengeful read that kept me captivated from the very first page. I loved it.

    this series gets better and better

    As with the two previous books Carol Wyer convinces me with a well written story that kept me reading past bedtime with a book in this series that keeps getting better and better. I really like DI Robyn Carter and hope to get to read more about her soon. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture!

    Gripping

    The Missing Girls is the third compelling book, in Carol Wyer’s Detective Robyn Carter Crime Thriller Series. The storage facility atmosphere became thick, with somber silence, when a trunk, expected to have hidden illegal drugs in it, contained instead, a decomposing body of a sixteen-year-old girl. The deceased, Carrie Smith, had been brutally murdered. When Amber Dalton, another teenage girl was found dead; DI Robyn Carter, was convinced, that it was the work of a serial killer. Her boss, however, didn’t agree with her and ordered Robyn to stay focused on her investigation of Carrie Smith’s murderer. He accused Robyn of wasting valuable resources. When a third girl was reported missing, Robyn was ready to put in for a transfer. But, her deceased fiancee’s daughter, Amelie, a girl whom she adored, kept her rooted to her current precinct. DI Robyn Carter became more focused than ever, though, when a fourth girl, one whom she was acquainted with, went missing. Robyn was determined to put the sick-serial-killer behind bars, before it was too late, for yet, another girl. The Missing Girls is an engrossing, fast-paced novel. As difficult as it was to read about the victim’s experiences, the author’s sharp and vivid details kept me captivated and glued to my seat. This book is a gripping, police procedural crime thriller, crafted with many clever twists, that kept me guessing until the very end. Thank you, Bookouture and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.
