Blog Tour Stop with Review - The Missing Girls by Carol Wyer


 
Welcome to my stop on the Blog blitz for the fabulous third Instalment in the DI Robyn Carter series!


What They Say:

One girl found dead. Another girl gone... Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever... When a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer. No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered. This time the killer’s distinctive mark is plain to see, and matching scratches on the first victim’s skeleton make Robyn suspect she’s searching for a serial-killer.  As Robyn closes in on the killer’s shocking hunting ground, another girl goes missing, and this time it’s someone close to her own heart.  Robyn can’t lose another loved one. Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced, before it’s too late? An utterly gripping and darkly compelling detective thriller that will have fans of Robert Dugoni, Angela Marsons and James Patterson hooked from the very start. You will not guess the ending!



What I Say:

I have loved this series! This is the first detective series I have ever read and I am thoroughly hooked! Robyn is such a strong character, I feel for her, I cheer for her and I kind of hero-worship her. I think women like her are amazing!

The story that is woven in The Missing Girls is so well written that I genuinely had no idea what the outcome would be. This is a proper Whodunnit and it will keep you guessing right to the very end. This is dark, twisted and quite sinister, all while still sending a positive message to the reader. I think that's quite rare in a thriller. This just proves to me what a brilliant writer Carol is.

The characters are all so real. Their stories all work together to make a great team of officers, they seem so normal that you can imagine them being in any police station. The evil behind the cases they solve is written so well that I actually got goosebumps. So creepy and believable...

If you haven't read this series yet, I suggest that you do. It is brilliant, dark, twisted and creepy but with a positive message woven into each book. 10/10

I worked long and hard on this list and I feel really good about it this year. I have read 53 out of the 45 books I had hoped to read this year, so I'm pretty pleased with that.

So, here we go!
