Vendetta by Lisa Harris - REVIEWED

About the Book:
No one needs to push Nikki Boyd to excel on the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force. The case of her own missing sister, still unsolved after ten years, is the driving force in her work. When a Polaroid photo of a missing girl shows up at a crime scene, Nikki quickly recognizes similarities to the past. The closer she gets to the abductor, the more she feels this case has become personal, and she is not the hunter . . . but the hunted.

With this explosive first book in The Nikki Boyd Files, award-winning author Lisa Harris takes you on a fast-paced pursuit of justice that will have you holding your breath until the heart-stopping finish.

My Thoughts:
“So you found a way to change your identity.”  (p. 254)

Chilling words, uttered by Nikki Boyd, as she confronts someone that memory had all but erased from her life.  In the course of her work for the FBI, Nikki encounters more than her fair share of evil people. However, she gets blindsided by this person as she chases down leads to save a young teen that has been abducted from a nearby state park.  The race to find the young girl becomes ever more urgent with each passing hour.

Readers are introduced to Nikki as she is climbing with the widowed husband of her best friend – as they remember her on the one year anniversary of her death.  Both Nikki and Tyler are recovering from their loss when they get pulled into a case that literally won’t let them go!  Barely any sleep, and an ever-more frantic rush to follow every lead they uncover, allows the reader to get to know both the strengths and weaknesses of both of these people.  You watch as they learn to depend on each other for their very survival.

Lisa Harris’ name on the cover guarantees the reader will enjoy a very tense and exciting ride from first to last pages!  If you like police drama with a healthy dose of suspense, pick up a copy of Vendetta today!  I am thrilled to know this is the first in a brand new series of The Nikki Boyd Files!!  I am one happy reader!!
