After a date on Halloween, Lainey Emerson disappears, along with a new boyfriend. This individual, known only by the nickname of El Captain, is the obvious suspect. Bobby Dees, the tenacious special agent of Florida’s crack Crimes Against Children squad, is the one person who may be able to find her -- and he is both helped and hindered by the fact that he knows only too well how it feels to lose a child. But all of his resources are called upon by a nemesis who always seems to be one step ahead – and time is running out for the missing girl.
As in Retribution, this high-octane narrative is dispatched with maximum efficiency by the unsentimental Jilliane Hoffman. The author has a strong background in Florida law enforcement, which she cannily parleys into the verisimilitude of the storytelling here. If you prefer not to be disturbed by your crime fiction, steer clear. The rest of us will be very reluctant to put down Pretty Little Things before we’ve finished it. --Barry Forshaw --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Written for the American reader. Far too many acronyms and much of the dialogue confusing for a non American reader.Published 22 days ago by Mae Bee

Like many other reviewers I almost gave up on this book early on, due to the poor writing style - which could be described as clunky at best. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Galning
Pretty Little Things is pretty grim reading at times and I doubt I would have read it if I'd realised just how grisly certain scenes from the book were going to be. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Charles Fudgemuffin
