The Girl Who Disappeared Twice - Andrea Kane

Publisher:  Mira
Pages:  400
Source: I received  a review copy from NetGalley
Genre:  Psychological Thriller, Suspense, Adult

From  Amazon:
If she'd only turned her head, she would have seen the car containing her daughter, struggling to get out. Struggling  to escape her kidnapper.
Despite all her years determining the fates of families, veteran family court judge Hope Willis couldn't save her own. Now she's frantically grasping at any hope for Krissy's rescue. Her husband dead–set against it, she calls Casey Woods and her team of renegade investigators, Forensic Instincts.
A behaviorist, A techno–wizard, An intuitive, A former Navy SEAL.  Unconventional  operatives.  All with unique talents and personal reasons for being part of Casey's group, they'll do whatever it takes.
Able to accurately read people after the briefest of encounters, Casey leads her crew to Krissy's home. There, she picks up the signs of a nervous spouse, a guilty conscience, a nanny that hides on her cell. She watches as secrets beg to creep into the open.
Forensic Instincts will dig through each tiny clue and eliminate the clutter. But time is running out, and even working around the clock, the authorities are bound by the legal system. Not so Casey's team. For they know that the difference between Krissy coming back alive and disappearing forever could be as small as a suspect's rapid breathing, or as deep as Hope's dark family history.

My Review:

Wow!  That was my first thought when I’d finished this book.  I didn’t want it to end.  I had to stop reading to sleep last night.  Not because I wanted to but because my computer stopped working and I had no choice.  The book had me from the very beginning.  I suspected who the kidnapper was but couldn’t figure out why.  The author threw so many things in to make you think the kidnapper was someone else.  It was very obvious that the author had done a lot of research.  The characters were very believable as were the events that happened.  While reading the book I could see a parallel between this book and the kidnapping of Jayce Dugard, and many other high profile kidnappings.  If you like suspense and thrillers this would definitely be the book for you.  I definitely will find more books by this author.  It isn’t often I find adult authors that capture my attention and hold it like this one did.
