BLOG TOUR - Watch Her Disappear


The girl’s prom dress, the color of champagne, shimmers in the dying light. A corsage of wilting pink sweetheart roses decorates her wrist. She is perfectly still, lying on the ground like a delicate china doll, trapped forever in a sleep from which she will never wake…

When a call comes in about a young girl found dead at a high school prom—her life drained away from a fatal stab wound—
Detective Josie Quinn drops everything to attend the scene. Taking in the girl’s neatly braided hair, Josie feels a flicker of recognition. But no one comes forward to identify this innocent child, murdered on what should have been the happiest night of her life.

Trawling missing persons files, Josie realizes where she has seen the girl before. Gemma Farmer disappeared a few months ago, shattering her family. But why would her body appear now, on her sixteenth birthday? Josie’s only clue is the five neat little cuts on Gemma’s pale arm. Days later, another missing girl shows up, tucked neatly into her bed on the morning of herbirthday, her favourite teddy beside herher skin as cold as ice—and the autopsy reveals scars on her arm matching Gemma’s.

Her head spinning, Josie fears the marks are a serial killer’s twisted way of counting his victims. But where are the other girls he’s killed, and how many more could follow? The case takes a terrifying turn when a local teen goes missing just days before she turns sixteen.

Clock ticking, Josie turns the town upside down in search of answers. But when her own chief comes forward with a missing piece in this devastating puzzle spanning decades, will it be enough to get inside the mind of the most unexpected and elusive killer she has ever encountered, or will another precious life be taken?

An absolutely heart-stopping and totally unputdownable crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. You will be up all night biting your nails and turning pages! Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.

Detective Josie Quinn's latest case takes on a very different edge when it ties into a possible cold case that has Chief Robert Chitwood tied up in knots. Things start for Josie when a young girl was found dead at a high school prom. Josie dives right in to try and identify the girl. As she does so, files prove that this murder resembles other murders from decades earlier. How do the present and past murders involve Josie's boss?

Evidence of a serial killer is strong, and one fact proves very disturbing. It appears that the victims are kept for some time before they are murdered, and with evidence that another teen is being held, there is truly a race against time for Josie and her team.

Chief Chitwood is as tough as they come, and he has knocked heads with Josie and others over time. However, this case proves very personal to the Chief and Josie works feverishly with him to get to the bottom of things. In fact, the two connect in a powerful way and I love how this book closed bringing something to mind from a previous book in this amazing series.

I have loved this series as I started with book three, Her Mother's Grave, back in 2018. Each and every book has been a stellar read, and Watch Her Disappear is right up there with all of the other books and definitely comes highly recommended.

Many thanks Bookouture to and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
