Overview

THE FIRST BODY IS A MYSTERY.
She's young. She's beautiful. And her corpse, laid out in the office of Boston
medical examiner Kat Novak, betrays no secrets—except for a matchbook
clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside.

THE NEXT BODY IS A WARNING.
When a second victim is discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalk-
ing the streets. The police are skeptical. The mayor won't listen. And Kat's chief
suspect is one of the town's most prominent citizens.

THE FINAL BODY...MIGHT BE HERS.
With the death toll rising, Kat races to expose a deadly predator who is closer that
she ever dreamt. And every move she makes could be her very last.

    Early Tess Gerritsen novel

    *Please note that this book was originally published in 1994 as Peggy Sue Got Married. According to the Author's Introduction the book has been updated for today's readers.

    I received an advance reader edition of this book from Random House Publishing and Net Galley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

    4 Stars

    I really liked this book. This is the first book by Tess Gerritsen that I have read even though I have had her books on my ever growing to be read list for quite some time. When I first sat down to read this book, I will admit that I was a bit disappointed to learn that this was in face an older book that had been updated and re-released. I do dislike it when I see books being re-released especially with different titles because I have bought books I already owned more than once. I was safe with this book since I have not read anything by this author before.

    I found the book to be very enjoyable. I really liked the writing style of Ms. Gerritsen. The plot was not overly complex and the characters were not only likeable but believable. Romance did play a major role by the end of the book but not so much that it overwhelmed the rest of the plot.

    Kat Novak is a medical examiner who finds a matchbook with a phone number clutched inside a corpse's hands. When she calls the number it starts a chain of events, she eventually meets Adam Quantrel. They end up working together to solve a string of deaths connected to a new unknown drug and find Adam's step-daughter. There was plenty of mystery to keep you guessing throughout the book. While I can not say that I was shocked by the ending, I did not have everything figured out either.

    I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an entertaining quick read. That being said this is a very early work by Tess Gerritsen and I would suspect that her current books are even better as her writing skills have developed. I have not read any other book by this author so I am unable to make any comparisons. I definitely plan to read other books by this author and may been to bump her Rizzoli and Isles series closer to the top of my TBR list.

    This book, previously published as Peggy Sue Got Murdered is the bridge book, where Tess Gerritsen went from writing romance to writing thrillers.  There is still plenty of romance in this book, but if edge-of-your-seat thrill rides are your thing, then this book does not disappoint.  The characters are so personable you actually feel as if you know them,  The storyline is fresh, and it leaves you guessing until the very end.

    185 pages

    This book has 185 pages. I was hoping for something longer, but since loved Tess Garretson's other books and the Rozzoli and Ives' television series, I took a chance on a new medical examiner. This book is simulair to Kay Scapetta by Patricia Cornwell, but it isn't as gruesome or as technical. There is a lot of action and quite a few surprizes packed into this well edited, entertaining and fast read. There is a new drug loose on the inner city streets. There have been several deaths and there is a worry an epidemic may be rearing its ugly head. The police and mayor are of the opinion, the only good junkie is a dead junkie. There is several great conflicts in this book, a romance, a fantastic mystery, a great conclusion, no cursing or religion, a very mild sexual encounter, so this book is a pretty clean read. It is not chick lit nor is it rooster lit. It is for all mystery lovers, age 16 and up. A stand alone book. I tried to find other books with these characters and could not. What a shame. Read and enjoy.

    Highly Recommended

    The story is certainly different from what we're used to from Tess Gerritsen. I really liked this book. Her writing, as usual, is outstanding and I was just caught up in the story from the first page.

    Good Read!

    Having read all of the Rizzoli and Isles series, I wanted to see how Tess Gerritsen began with her writing career. This is a shorter book, but well written. It follows pretty much in the same category as most of the mystery books do. It was entertaining and moved along quite fast.

    I would definitely read more of Gerritsen's books.

    Mystery, Romance, and Suspense!

    This was my first book by Tess Gerritsen, and look forward to reading more from this author! “Girl Missing” has a great front cover which draws you in with well- rounded characters, and a gripping complex plot. (Was a huge fan of “Body of Proof," starring Dana Delany). The TV star and Kate are similar as both tenacious, and do not get involved in the police politics--They are out to solve a case, no matter the obstacles. Also reminds me a little of “Castle” (which I love).

    Appears this is a remix of the original “Peggy Sue Got Murdered”, in 1994 as a re-release, which I had not read so not able to make any comparison. Sounds as though the author is crossing over to romance while maintaining her thriller/mystery writing.

    An exciting thriller with a trail of lies and deceit, romance, mystery and suspense. There was plenty of mystery to keep you guessing throughout the book, as Kat Novak, a medical examiner from Boston, encounters her first body (a Jane Doe) of the day with a matchbook and phone number clutched inside the corpse's hands.

    When she calls the number it belongs to a prominent citizen. As the bodies pile up Kate realizes there is a problem and she is in danger with a chain of events to follow . . . she eventually meets Adam (head of a brand new drug company with a missing daughter). They end up working together to solve a string of deaths connected to a new unknown drug and find Adam's step-daughter. Even when he finds the corpse isn’t related, he is determined to find answers as he teams up with Kate (with more than work).

    Will definitely plan on reading more from this author and her latest releases. I have read rave reviews the Rizzoli and Isles series, which I look forward to adding to my reading list. Girl Missing is light and entertaining and would recommend!
