New York Times Bestseller: A judge’s daughter is abducted in this gritty thriller from an author who “sets new standards for suspense” (Lisa Gardner).

Despite all her years determining the fates of families, judge Hope Willis couldn’t save her own. Her daughter taken, she’s frantically grasping at any hope for Krissy’s return. Desperate, Hope calls upon an unconventional team of experts for help.

Casey and her team at Forensic Instincts, LLC will dig through each tiny clue, working around the clock. But time is running out, and they know that the difference between getting Krissy back and losing her forever could be as small as a suspect’s rapid breathing, or as deep as Hope’s dark family history . . .

“Smooth prose and engaging characters.” —Publishers Weekly

“Kane succeeds once again.” —Booklist

“Fascinating . . . sharply drawn characters, fast-paced dialogue, dark and dangerous minds.” —RT Book Reviews

Why did I add The Girl Who Disappeared Twice to my bookshelf?

I dug way back in my Kindle library to find this book. I added this book to my digital library back in July 2011. That’s almost 13 years ago! At least I got it on sale. The reviews from my friends are a little mixed but, it still sounds like something I would enjoy. Hopefully, I can get to it before another 13 years pass!

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it?

  1. That’s a new to me one! I’ve been going down my Goodreads list to get my picks and pretty much picking them in order. So far I’m up to October 2015! I was busy that month! Or at least that’s when I remembered to add them to my Goodreads list! I tend to forget to do that on occasion! Lol. Hope you’re able to get to this one soon and enjoy it!

  2. I said, “wow”, when I saw how long ago you acquired this book, but I know I have some that are older. Hope it’s great!

    Wow, this one has definitely been hanging out for a while. Hopefully it gets bumped up the TBR a bit now. 🙂

  4. It’s almost like finding lost treasure on our shelves when we come across a book that’s been on our TBR so long. I hope you enjoy The Girl Who Disappeared Twice when you read it!

  5. I haven’t heard of this book, but since I’m not usually a thriller reader, that makes sense. (I haven’t heard of most thrillers.) I hope you enjoy it! And I hope it doesn’t take you another 13 years to get to it. 😉
