The Dare by Carol Wyer

Does any parent know what actually goes on behind the facade of their teenage children. I think we think we do, but we really don't!

Jane thinks she has a good rapport with her daughter. Not being rigid but there are guidelines and when her daughter does not return home by 4 pm on a school day and when none of her friends know where she is Jane's nightmare begins. Her body is discovered just a few hours later.

Natalie Ward is the detective on the case and she knows that this one is not going to be an easy ride. She feels that she is getting close to the killer, but then a second girl goes missing and she knows the killer is mocking them with the clues he leaves behind. A killing of a similar nature in another city rings a bell and now Natalie has to find some common link with the previous killing to check whether a serial killer is on the rampage. When Natalie's own daughter goes missing the nightmare comes closer to home.

Full of suspense this is a real page turner.

  1. Oh my, that does sounds like a page turner!

  2. I must agree, it sounds like quite the page turner

  3. I do love suspense. This sounds like a good one.

  4. The nightmare for any parent--when a child doesn't come home. For a detective already investigating a murder and a disappearance to find that her own daughter is that would be suspenseful.

  5. Sounds great, thanks for sharing your thoughts
