Vendetta by Lisa Harris possesses a frighteningly plausible scenario of a young teen who has gone missing. Special Agent Nikki Boyd of the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force happened to be in the vicinity of the disappearance with her friend Tyler. They were commemorating the one-year anniversary of his wife’s death when the call was received. Nikki doesn’t hesitate to respond, as 10 years earlier the investigation into the abduction of Nikki’s sister had quickly turned cold, and she knows that time is of the essence. Held captive by a rising sense of urgency and the compelling backstory of this new heroine, I finished this book in one day!
Following a tip, Nikki and Tyler soon find themselves with the daunting task of searching for the missing teen in the expansive wilderness of the Great Smoky Mountains. I was very excited about the author’s choice of setting because I can remember a childhood visit to the park and seeing my first black bear. I enjoyed the park history and folklore the author used to enhance the story.
Once in the park, Nikki quickly assembles a team of volunteers and rangers to aid in the search. As potential leads result in a series of dead ends, memories of her sister’s abduction begin to plagued Nikki. It was at about this point in the book that I recognized Nikki, her faith, and the investigative story gaining depth rapidly. It’s also when readers catch our first real glimpse of romantic tension – a spark with the potential for fireworks in the future.
