Synopsis:

A family home has become a crime scene. Five people are involved: four of them have been savagely murdered; one - a sixteen-year-old girl - is missing.

Was she lucky to have escaped? Or is her absence evidence of something sinister?

Detective D. D. Warren is on the case, as is survivor-turned-avenger Flora Dane.

Seeking different types of justice, they must make sense of the clues left behind by a young woman who, as victim or suspect, is silently pleading, Look for me.

This is book #9 already in the successful ‘Detective D.D. Warren’ series. For me it’s the introduction to Gardner and obviously this series. And what an introduction it is! I loved it from beginning to (almost) the end. The ending is a bit disappointing since I saw it coming but the whole read in general was great!

The characters are well developed, the storytelling lovely. You notice Gardner slipped into this book like a well fitting jacket. This can be dangerous but I don’t feel she fell into the trap of automatism and rapidly spit out another book. The cover art however could be improved and feels like 13 in a dozen…

Well written police story and has the lingo to accompany it.
