She has a mother who's never stopped loving her, a brother who is scared of the person she's become, and a bedroom wall covered with photos of other girls who've never made it home.Flora Dane is reckless.. . . or is she? When Boston detective D. D. Warren is called to the scene of a crime—a dead man and the bound, naked woman who killed him—she learns that Flora has tangled with three other suspects since her return to society. Is Flora a victim or a vigilante? And with her firsthand knowledge of criminal behavior, could she hold the key to rescuing a missing college student whose abduction has rocked Boston? When Flora herself disappears, D.D. realizes a far more sinister predator is out there. One who's determined that this time, Flora Dane will never escape. And now it is all up to D. D. Warren to find her.
The D.D. Warren series is one of my favorites. It's one that I can count on to be a very good read or listen. This book did not hit that mark. It started out good, but quickly went into unbelievable territory. It proceeded to be repetitive and simply just too much. This series has a good track record for me, so I'm still looking forward to the next.
