This is a Kenzie/Gennaro book and is also a sequel to Gone Baby Gone. In that book, a four-year-old girl goes missing and Patrick and Angie have to find her.
In this book, the girl is now 16 and is missing again–a runaway this time. Her mom (who, of course, is the same stellar parent she was in Gone Baby Gone) says her daughter is fine, but her aunt doesn’t believe it. She gets Patrick to agree to look for her again.
I love Patrick and Angie and I was really happy when I read that there was going to be another book in the series (the first in several years). This book completely exceeded all expectations. It’s dark and brooding, which I love, but there’s a sense of hope, too. I’m pretty sure this is going to be the last in the series, which makes me sad, but at least I got to see them again. And at least they were left in a good place.
(And can I just say one last time how much I love these people?)
Recommended for people who like their mysteries to have moral conflicts and no easy answers.
