In the second of the Nikki Boyd Files, Nikki gets mixed up in a murder investigation when the owners of a house with two dead bodies in it are discovered missing. The case grows even more complicated when it leads to her friend Tyler's boat, where another body is found. Nikki's job is to find the missing homeowners, not solve the murder. But when the murderer seems intent on tying up all loose ends--including Nikki herself--she might not have much choice in the matter if she wants to survive.
The story starts off at an explosive pace and keeps on running all the way to the end with non-stop action. Murder, abduction, hostages, hit men--the story has it all.Maybe a little too much to be completely believable, but it's highly entertaining nonetheless.
I am enjoying the serial feel of the books, following Nikki Boyd in her missing persons cases, the cold-case mystery of her sister's abduction, and gradual progress with her personal life. There's still a long way to go, especially regarding her sister's case and her own romance, but it's good to see progress in those areas in addition to the satisfaction of a case now solved. I look forward to the next in the series!
