A recovering alcoholic with more regrets than belongings, Frankie Elkin spends her life doing what no one else will-- searching for missing people the world has stopped looking for. A new case brings her to Mattapan, a Boston neighborhood with a rough reputation. She is searching for Angelique Badeau, a Haitian teenager who vanished from her high school months earlier. Resistance from the Boston PD and the victim's wary family tells Frankie she's on her own. She soon learns she's asking questions someone doesn't want answered.

Another good book by Lisa Gardner. This is a new character but I do not believe that this is the last time we see her. She was strong character that was flawed but driven on her task to find missing people. Great read.

I love, love, love Lisa Gardner. I absolutely blow through her books, and I finish them in a matter of just a few days. That being said, I don't think this was her strongest offering. However, I liked Frankie A LOT and would love more books about her. The way this novel ended... there's gotta be more, right? Please?!

"My name is Frankie Elkin and finding missing people is what I do. When the police have given up, when the public no longer remembers, when the media has never bothered to care, I start looking."

I flew through this standalone from Lisa Gardner like I was an elite runner in the Boston Marathon. Frankie is a flawed, but fascinating protagonist. She has come to Boston to help find a missing teenager. This is her fifteenth missing persons case. Maybe this will be the first one she finds alive. Frankie has some intuitive detective skills and is a genius at interrogation. Would love to see another Frankie Elkin book if Gardner should choose to write it.
