Someone is watching them…
When a missing teenage girl reappears unharmed but pregnant, the case falls to DI Edina Ogborne, the newest recruit of Canterbury Police. But Ed’s already got her hands full with a team who don’t want her, an ex who won’t quit, and terrible guilt over a secret from her past.
As Ed investigates the case, she discovers Canterbury has seen this crime not once, but several times before. And when Ed and her detectives encounter missing historic police files, falsified school records, and Ed’s new lover as a prime suspect, it becomes clear that the system has been corrupted.
Can Ed find the kidnapper behind these depraved crimes before he strikes again? Or has time already run out?
My Review: I love stories of abductions. The Taken Girls is no different. This book was different in most abduction stories in that the abductor actually releases his victim after a short amount of time, after his mission is complete.
The Taken Girls also focuses on DI Ed Ogborne, newly transferred from the Met. Immediately put on the missing girls case, she must try and solve the case while also trying to fit into her new team.
This book was a little difficult for me to get into. While I loved the parts when the story focused on the the happenings of the abductor, I found myself a little lost during the parts about Ed.
Overall I enjoyed this unique, fast-paced book!
