THE LOST ONES by Dana Perry


Book Links

Book 3 in the Detective Nikki Cassidy series

As dawn breaks over a small gas station on the outskirts of Groveton, Ohio, the body of a teenage girl lies totally still. Long blonde hair covers her face, and a length of frayed rope hangs loosely around her neck. It’s only a matter of time before someone finds her, just like her killer intended…

When FBI agent Nikki Cassidy receives a call from Groveton’s Chief of Police, her heart pounds. A young girl just knocked on the door of Nikki’s old family home, claiming to be Nikki’s kid sister, Caitlin. But Caitlin was murdered fifteen years ago. Who is the girl and what does she want?

Nikki thinks the impersonator could finally lead her to her sister’s twisted killer. But her hope is shattered when the girl’s lifeless body is found strangled at a local service stop. If the girl knew about Caitlin, could she have known the identity of the killer? Was she murdered before she could unmask them?

Going against her boss’s orders to stay away, Nikki traces the girl’s last known steps to her best friend, Shirley. Nikki learns that the girl was last seen meeting with a stranger at the mall. Could it have been her killer?

Closer than ever to uncovering the truth, Nikki can’t give up now. But when Shirley’s body is found at another service station, a length of rope wound around her neck, her heart shatters. Another young life has been lost. Nikki vows that this will be the last.

When an intruder breaks into her old home, Nikki knows it’s the killer sending her a sign. As she walks into the familiar old house in the dead of night, will she finally get justice and catch her sister’s killer, or did she just walk into a deadly trap?

My Thoughts 

We are back with book three in the Nikki Cassidy series. The Lost Ones is the finale written by Dana Perry. I have really enjoyed this series. Nikki has been trying to sort out her sister, Caitlin's unsolved murder. However, there is a young girl that shows up at Nikki's old family home and says that she is Caitlin. Nikki is immediately alarmed.  

However, she thinks that the girl can help try and finally identify Caitlin's kiler. However before Nikki can get any information, the girl is found dead. Nikki digs into the girls friends and past desperate to find Caitlin's killer. However, someone will continue to kill to stay hidden.

Oh this series is packed full of suspense. I love Nikki Cassidy - I really hope to see more from this author. The book is well written. The storyline is packed full of suspense. Thank you to the author, publisher and Partners in Crime Tours for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
