“Vendetta” is a well-crafted novel filled with suspense, drama, action, and just a hint of romance. I hope to witness the progression of that particular romance as the series continues.

Realistic, three dimensional characters¬† Nikki Boyd and her best friend’s widower Tyler worked well together as a team and had me rooting for them through the entire book. I liked how supportive and protective Tyler was toward Nikki yet he didn’t try to diminish her effectiveness in her job as an investigator for the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force. I also liked the depth of character development that gave me insight into what motivated Nikki and Tyler’s decisions.

The story moved along at a steady pace with ample twists and surprises along the way to hold my attention. The spiritual content was natural and did not overshadow the story line at all. I thoroughly enjoyed “Vendetta” and look forward to the next installment of the series soon.

“Filled with red herrings and heart-pounding danger, Vendetta will leave readers anxiously awaiting Nikki Boyd’s next adventure.”–Irene Hannon, bestselling author of the Private Justice series

No one needs to push Nikki Boyd to excel on the Tennessee Missing Persons Task Force. The case of her own missing sister, still unsolved after ten years, is the driving force in her work. When a Polaroid photo of a missing girl shows up at a crime scene, Nikki quickly recognizes similarities to the past. The closer she gets to the abductor, the more she feels this case has become personal, and she is not the hunter . . . but the hunted.

With this explosive first book in The Nikki Boyd Files, award-winning author Lisa Harris takes you on a fast-paced pursuit of justice that will have you holding your breath until the heart-stopping finish.
