When You See Me

Book: When You See Me
Series: Detective DD Warren #11
Author: Lisa Gardner

FBI Special Agent Kimberly Quincy and Sergeant Detective D D Warren have built a task force to follow the digital bread crumbs left behind by deceased serial kidnapper Jacob Ness. When a disturbing piece of evidence is discovered in the hills of Georgia, they bring Flora Dane and true-crime savant Keith Edgar to a small town where something seems to be deeply wrong. What at first looks like a Gothic eeriness soon hardens into something much more sinister . . . and they discover that for all the evil Jacob committed while alive, his worst secret is still to be revealed. Quincy and DD must summon their considerable skills and experience to crack the most disturbing case of their careers--and Flora must face her own past directly in the hope of saving others.-Goodreads

Review: I've said it before and I'll say it again-Lisa Gardner is one of the best authors publishing right now. Book 11 in the DD Warren series and I LOVED it. In this installment, three of my favorite characters take center stage and work as a team (of sorts) to hunt a killer. Boston Detective Kimberly Quincy, FBI Agent Kimberly Quincy (from the Quincy & Rainie series, also know as the Profiler series) and survivor extraordinaire, Flora Dane. This can be read as a standalone but I think it's worth reading the entire DD Warren series from book 1 as well as the Quincy/Rainie series to understand all the character backgrounds. 

A couple hiking find a human bone in the Georgia mountains and things progress from there. There is a possibility Jacob Ness may have been involved (must read prior books to learn about him although this book does summarize events) so DD, Flora and Keith (love him and Flora together) travel to Georgia to join the taskforce. The end up in a small town where nothing seems quite right. 

Creepy and I loved it!

Grade: 4.5/5
