story of a case that has haunted the public and law enforcement for more than a decade.
During Garrett Addison’s first week on the job as a criminal investigator for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, his team is called out to a murder scene of a young girl. She’s just one in a string of disappearances with a single thing in common—a Polaroid photo of each victim left behind at the crime scene.
The FBI is pulled into the case to help, and Garrett finds himself working with Special Agent Jordan Lambert, the woman he once loved. When yet another girl dies, Garrett blames himself and believes he doesn’t have what it takes to be an agent. What he’ll discover is that, while he may be done with the killer, the killer is not done with him—or Jordan.
Fans of the Nikki Boyd Files will thrill to finally discover what actually happened to Nikki’s sister, Sarah. New readers will become instant fans after devouring this chilling tale.
Lisa, welcome to Interviews & Reviews!
but I’m grateful for all the opportunities God has put in our way, as well as His faithfulness.
Wow! I am amazed you even find time to write. You sound like you have a very full life. What is the hardest thing about writing for you?
This book, in particular, was tough. It’s a book about a serial killer, and I hate serial killers books. (It’s true.) I also had to come up with a satisfying story and ending for my readers while dealing with a very tough subject. It made the writing of this story harder than most, but in the end, I believe it was worth the struggle. And in the end, for those especially who have read the Nikki Boyd series, I think it will be an ending the series deserves.
Do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Writing for me has always been a journey more than a destination. When I started, I thought I had it all figured out. Believed I’d written the next great American novel. My first visit to a critique group showed me just how much I had to learn. And after twenty years I’m still learning. So learn, read, write, challenge yourself, ask questions, write, enjoy the journey, and write, write, write.
What is your favourite time of day to write?
Over the years of raising kids, homeschooling, and life in general, I’ve learned to write in the chaos. But I particularly enjoy those seemingly rare quiet moments in my day that are often hard to find.
What are your favourite types of TV shows?
I love police procedural shows like NCIS, Hawaii 5-0, The Mentalist, and Blue Bloods. I’m always finding some little nugget that inspires my own writing.
Do you talk to your characters?
I would say it’s more like they talk to me. Although I suppose I do talk back on occasion. Mainly in telling them to be quiet so I can sleep. ☺ I also write down most of what they say, whether on scratch paper, notes on my phone, or in a notebook.
Are there things you put off doing because you dread them?
Anything to do with cleaning and math. Though I have to say, while I avoid accounting at all costs (thankfully I have a husband who keeps track of that for me) I can always find a solution to a story line problem while washing the dishes.
When is your next book due out and can you tell us about it?
I’m currently working on a stand alone for my publisher that will come out next summer, I believe. I’ve had to totally shift my thinking now that I’ve left behind the Nikki Boyd Series and those characters, but I’m having fun with this story and can’t wait to share it!
