She couldn't stop it.Not then.Not now.

If she'd only turned her head, she would have seen the car containing her daughter, struggling to get out. Struggling to escape her kidnapper.

Despite all her years determining the fates of families, veteran family court judge Hope Willis couldn't save her own. Now she's frantically grasping at any hope for Krissy's rescue. Her husband dead-set against it, she calls Casey Woods and her team of renegade investigators,Forensic Instincts.

A behaviorist.A techno-wizard.An intuitive.A former Navy SEAL. Unconventional operatives.All with unique talents and personal reasons for being part of Casey's group, they'll do whatever it takes.

Able to accurately read people after the briefest of encounters, Casey leads her crew to Krissy's home. There, she picks up the signs of a nervous spouse, a guilty conscience, a nanny that hides on her cell. She watches as secrets beg to creep into the open.

Forensic Instincts will dig through each tiny clue and eliminate the clutter. But time is running out, and even working around the clock, the authorities are bound by the legal system. Not so Casey's team. For they know that the difference between Krissy coming back alive and disappearing forever could be as small as a suspect's rapid breathing, or as deep as Hope's dark family history.

This was one of the most predictable books I have ever read! The ending was obvious before I was even one-quarter of the way through it. I hung on because I liked the Forensic Instincts characters and some of the other major characters - especially little Krissy and the bloodhound, Hero.
The book itself seemed written for television, but it was an okay read if you don't want to think too hard.

Read it on my phone (Overdrive e-book) and was captivated. I believe the unorthodox team at Forensic Instincts would be a great building blocks for many good stories to come. Planning on reading the second book of the series when I get my hands on it!

This is the 1st book I've read by this author. So far so good. I've been so busy it is taking me some time to finish it. Hope to be done by the due date! I've renewwd twice.

Truthfully I never figure out a mystery before the author reveals it to me. After the first 50 pages of this book I knew the who and the how and was only one deductive leap away from arriving at the why. The author showed her cards far too early and made her characters who she touted as "the best of the best" look ridiculous for not seeing what was right in front of their, and the reader's, face. A poor book lacking in any real suspense, I would not recommend it.

Harming children is not entertainment.
