A special thank you to Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC, in exchange for an honest review.
THE FORGOTTEN GIRLS, (Louise Rick / Camilla Lind #7)by Sara Blaedel is a chilling crime suspense mystery page-turner, leaving you turning into the wee hours of the morning.
Former Copenhagen homicide detective Louise Rick has just been appointed technical manager of the Special Search Agency, a division of Denmark's Search Department, responsible for investigating unsolved missing-person cases.
However, the first case, is haunting and brings her back to her own nightmares she has tried to forget. A dead girl has been found in the woods; however, no one has reported the victim missing. Even more disturbing, the girl died over 30 years ago.
When investigating further to a sanitarium for the mentally handicapped when was closed years ago, Louise discovers there was a twin sister, who may still be alive.
Louise works with her new partner, Eik Nordstrom which leads them down a devastating and twisted path, which intersects with Louise’s troubled past.
This was my first book by Blaedel and am now curious about the previous books in the series (I always seem to start with the latest and work my way backward). An intriguing mystery with the two girls, and the connection with main character; a nice set up and execution.
I am a huge fan of crime writers, New Zealand’s Paul Cleave and Scandinavian, Thomas Enger. Blaedel is not in this class, in my opinion; however, enjoyed the novel and look forward to reading more.
