Love having DD Warren and Flora Dane working together again in this latest Lisa Gardner thriller. I rounded up from 4.5 stars to rate this bok, especially for the insight we all get into the foster system. Most notable is the role the CASA volunteers play in providing stability for the children and filling gaps where needed. Five stars to them, for sure.

This story is twisted puzzle from the beginning and we watch the knots get untangled by DD and Flora in alternating chapters. Also included are essays written by Roxy (the surviving member of the slain family) on what makes a perfect family. She has lived through difficulties many of us would not imagine in our worst nightmares. It is heartbreaking to see the trauma kids are exposed to when their families fall victim to drugs, alcohol and/or violence. Not a feel good read, but a satisfying conclusion.

Wow reading the other comments I cannot believe it is the same book. I was extremely bored reading this.

Lisa Gardner delivers another creative, compelling and scary thriller with LOOK FOR ME. The creative part of this book comes from her use of looking at the events of the story through 3 different sets of eyes. There is a 3rd person-story which follows Det. D. D. Warren and her colleagues as they attempt to solve the murders of four family members. There is a 1st person-story which reintroduces us to Flora Dane, a victim from a previous novel who has now formed a sort of support group/skills training program for survivors of kidnappings and all that goes with experiencing that kind of crime. Dane is also apparently sort of a one-person vigilante who takes on perverts and perpetrators when she finds them. One of the members of Dane's group, Sarah, has been in touch with a terrified teenager who happens to be the fifth member of the family that was murdered - and a suspect in their murders. Dane, with Sarah's help, sets out to find this teenager. The third set of eyes is a set of 1st-person essays written by the missing teenager describing what life has been like like for her family and siblings through the years. As a thriller this is an awesome book. But, as with a lot of Gardner's books, it works around the ugly, underbelly of our society and some of the really tough issues out there. In this case, we get glimpses of brutal murder, kids bullying kids, foster care, family break ups, addictions, redemption, and sexual perversions. The book was a "can't put down" book for me, but you best be prepared to encounter some serious emotional touches. There is some hard stuff in here.

In this new book in the DD Warren series she teams up with vigilante Flora Dane who we met in book #8. Looks like she might become a regular in this series. The main plot is who killed a family of 4? Themes include a dysfunctional family, child becoming the parent, being failed by the foster system, teenage rivalries. Nothing amazing or outstanding, but Lisa Gardener mysteries are always written in a way that entertains and keeps the pages turning.

Loved it!! Couldn't put it down.
