Missing Persons Investigator Nikki Boyd is on a plane that crashes upon landing at the airport. In the aftermath of the wreck, Nikki can't find the woman who'd been seated next to her, and no one can remember if--or will admit that--she was ever there. When information comes to light that she was being flown in as a key witness to a grand jury trial, Nikki suspects that the woman is fleeing from trouble--unless she's at the heart of it.
The first 48 hours are the most critical.
With the entire book taking place in little over 48 hours, it is comprised of non-stop action and danger. After all that Nikki goes through in the first 24 hours (never mind the second), it's amazing she can function at all. I just can't believe, after all the physical and psychological trauma she goes through, that her superiors would allow her to remain on the case, not with the FBI and the rest of the missing persons task force on the case. Even if she is great at her job, she's not the only one able to do it. While it keeps things moving, I feel like it would have had more impact if not quite so many (and so varied) life-threatening disasters befell her.
The personal news Nikki receives after the crash is one more vicious blow, but it at least adds a poignant note to the story and pushes her to be vulnerable with her almost-boyfriend Tyler--something she is not accustomed to being in her everyday life of law enforcement.
Thank you Revell for providing a free book. I was not required to write a positive review, and all opinions are my own.
