Grayson Sykes knows that a missing woman doesn’t always want to be found. Unfortunately, she’s a newly minted private investigator who doesn’t get to pick the clients.
The doctor who hired her firm is more concerned about his missing dog than his missing girlfriend, Isabel. Isabel’s co-workers and friends claim she was abused by the doctor, and Grayson discovers pictures of a battered Isabel in a lockbox. Should she pursue a woman who so obviously wants to disappear? Are the secrets in Grayson’s past clouding her judgment? She’s still running from her ex-husband who beat her throughout their marriage. But are she and Isabel truly so similar?
This book reminded me of One Kick by Chelsea Cain. Both mysteries feature tough, survivor protagonists who are haunted by the past but determined to set wrongs to right. And Now She’s Gone has a more involved plot and features a twist I didn’t see coming. I’d recommend this to fans of detective novels and thrillers, but would caution readers to expect strong language and violence.
