THE FIRST BODY IS A MYSTERY.
She's young. She's beautiful. And her corpse, laid out in the office of Boston medical examiner Kat Novak, betrays no secrets - except for a matchbook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside.
THE NEXT BODY IS A WARNING.
When a second victim is discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the streets. The police are sceptical. The mayor won't listen. And Kat's chief suspect is one of the town's most prominent citizens.
THE FINAL BODY . . . MIGHT BE HERS.
With the death toll rising, Kat races to expose a deadly predator who is closer than she ever dreamt. And every move she makes could be her very last.

First Thought when Finished: I can see why Girl Missing is what Tess Gerritsen calls a “bridge” novel. The mystery was strong, there was a romance, but the characters are more along the lines of her more recent novels (takes awhile for you to warm up to them but when you like them they are fantastic).
Overall Thoughts: I really enjoyed reading Girl Missing. I knew that Tess had written romantic suspense in the past but had never tried them. Tess is a brilliant mystery writer and her case work is stellar. The methodical way she takes you step by step through solving the crime with the characters is a big reason she is one of my favorites. In Girl Missing, the case was super strong and fun to figure out. I wasn’t a fan of the romance but also didn’t think it distracted from the story. This is early Tess but still very good Tess!
Narrated By Susan Ericksen / Length: 8 hrs and 10 mins
I am a fan of Susan’s narration. She has a great tone for procedural books (she does the JD Robb series too) and strong/smart women are right up her alley. She did a very good job with Girl Missing!
Final Thoughts: I would recommend this to fans of Tess even if you aren’t a fan of romance. It was a darn good case!
