Very fast moving, exciting, suspenseful read. I have read the first book in this series and this one builds nicely on the foundation of The Vanishing Girls. I’m looking forward to the next one. Well done, Ms Regan!

I received a free copy of The Girl With No Name (Detective Josie Quinn, #2) from NetGalley for my honest review. I was thrilled to get a copy of this book as I absolutely loved the first book in the series, Vanishing Girls. I loved the characters, and found the book to be just as wonderful as the first book. I am not a person who normally gets into series books but am so pleased with these. Fantastic book, wonderful plot, great details and lots of excitement. Murder, extortion, kidnapping, oh my. I highly recommend this book series. It will not disappoint. Can't wait for the next book.

This series got off to a promising start with "Vanishing Girls," the first to feature Josie Quinn, a very capable detective in Denton, Pa. So of course, I was eager to get my hands on a copy of this one (thanks to the publisher, via NetGalley, for an advance review copy). My opinion? This one is better than the first. That said, I'll add this: While this one stands on its own well, I think that starting with the first one will give you a bit more understanding of what's going on (and besides, it's also very good). And for sure, there's a whole lot going on here with lots of players, so you need to pay close attention. Josie is now the chief of police in Denton - a job she likes, although she prefers action to sitting behind a desk keeping tabs on department budgets. She gets it in spades as she's called in when Missy, a stripper, lands in the hospital after taking a brutal beating at her home. She'd just delivered a baby, it appears - a baby who's now missing. Complicating the matter is that Missy and Raymond, Josie's late husband, were a hot item before he died; now, Josie must put aside her conflicting feelings and find out who attacked Missy and took the infant. And that's when the plot thickens even more. Josie's fiance Luke has been distant of late; when he goes missing, Josie learns that he knew Missy rather well. So, Josie and her team head for Luke's remote cabin, where he's been spending more time of late, and they find blood. No Luke, but there is a dead body half-buried behind the cabin - a man who's identified as a gangster type from Atlantic City. Has Luke gone off the deep end and committed murder, and if so, is it somehow connected to the baby's disappearance? Needless to say, Josie desperately wants to find Luke, even if it means he's implicated in the goings-on. The investigation leads to a very nasty rich kid who's trying to build a casino in Denton and then to an even more wealthy man who's good friends with the Denton mayor, who threatens to relieve Josie of her job if she doesn't play well with said mayor's family and friends. Josie isn't one to be intimidated, but with Luke involved and her upcoming marriage in jeopardy, she's conflicted. Her colleagues try to help, with some success, but in the end it's Josie who must come to terms with the outcome.

Lisa Regan is a new favorite author. This book was really good. The suspense was wonderful and kept you guessing until the very end. While I had suspensions, I didn't have all the pieces put together. In fact, I was sitting in a restaurant finishing the book and gasped in surprise at the end. I love a book that makes me do that! The characters were really well developed and the story line was for the most part believable. (I'm not sure a police chief would be out of the office and personally working a crime...or two. My son is a police officer and I find that highly unlikely. But still Josie was the chief of police in a smaller town. So maybe so.) I wasn't happy with the way it ended, but that's my personal opinion. It didn't take anything away from the book and how much I enjoyed reading it. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author and will definitely go back and read the first one in the series. There were some unanswered questions that I'm hoping will be resolved n the first book.

Lisa Regan was sitting at a loom WEAVING away all the twists and turns in this CRIME novel. Second in the Josie Quinn series and although it would probably flesh a few characters a bit more the story reads fine as a stand alone too. Jose is the Chief of Police with a "I AM GOING TO GET YOU" attitude along with a staff of loyal and gutsy detectives. Deaths are mounting up and author presents a number of potential killers. Steady paced drama but the last ten percent of the book was amazing. I have another one of Regan's books in my library and can't wait to get started on it. "A copy of this book was provided by Bookouture via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion."

Detective Josie Quinn is back again with her team in a thrilling crime fiction. VANISHING GIRLS was first in this series and I highly recommend reading that one first, even though is easily a stand alone. The characters are outstanding and it gives the readers an understanding into their back stories. Josie is called to a crime scene that leaves her reeling. A woman has given birth in her bathroom and then had the baby grabbed out of her arms. The woman just happens to have been the girlfriend of her then husband, another cop, who was killed. The only lead she has is a nameless woman caught fleeing the house, wearing her finance's nightshirt. She says she has no memory of who she is, where she came from, and what she's doing here. On top of everything else, Luke, Josie's intended, is missing, as well. Is this woman a killer ... or is she a victim? How does she know Luke, and why is she wearing his shirt? Josie has already survived one cheating husband ... is it happening again? With bodies dropping like flies, Josie and her team begin a frantic race to find not only the baby, but Luke as well. The author's writing of this mystery is brilliant. There are so many twists and turns with suspects galore. Interspersed between chapters are newspaper articles relating the death of a young person of some accident or another. There are more than one, and it's hard to understand what they have to do with the story ... but it does make sense the more you read. I've read several books by this author and she has never disappointed me. I look forward to the next adventures of Josie Quinn and her team. Many thanks to the author / Bookouture / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of this crime fiction. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
