"Fresh Meat" by Amy Dalton for Criminal Element

Does abduction run in the family? Andrea Kane crafts her new book, The Girl Who Disappeared Twice, around this premise. Hope and Felicity Ackerman were six year-old twins when Felicity was taken right out of their shared bed. 32 years later, Hope’s daughter is abducted. Hope calls in Casey Woods and Forensic Instincts, a team of ex-law enforcement, ex-military, and a tech nerd, who are independent crime consultants.

This is the start of a new series for Kane, and it could become a successful one as the cast of Forensic Instincts characters has a nice dynamic.

Personally, there was nothing about any of the characters that I could be interested in/drawn to. Too simple with "fantasy" skills. Not that I expect this genre of storytelling to be totally believable, but many of the actions of these characters made me groan out loud. I ended up skimming much to get to the end to see if I had correctly guessed "who done it." I had. I won't recommend this to anyone. ( )

Great read! Strong great characters both male and female. Great plot twists and I could not put the book down. ( )

The Girl Who Disappeared Twice is a fairly standard private investigator suspense novel, but with an entire team of investigators ("Forensic Instincts"). These investigators are talented beyond belief, and are blessed with only strengths and no weaknesses. Even the search dog is infallible, despite not training with any of his new handlers.

The crime is the kidnapping of a young girl. The mother's twin was kidnapped in a similar crime years ago. I suspected "who dun it" well before the end, but it's a unique twist and was an interesting story line. ( )

Another new author and a good one at that. Really enjoyed this book and am going to look for more from Ms. Kane. The story is about a young girl kidnapped from her family and years later, the surviving sister's child is kidnapped. Some of it was pretty easy to figure out but I still enjoyed it. ( )

Led by profiler Casey Woods, the Forensic Instincts team barrels into a snarl of suspects, secrets, and conspiracies. Smooth prose and engaging characters help offset some fairly obvious plot twists, a few of which stretch credibility to the breaking point. Also somewhat unbelievable are the near-infallible skills of Forensic Instincts' members and the willingness of dozens of police officers and FBI agents to let the team skirt legal boundaries repeatedly with no more than a harsh word or two of censure.
