Author Lisa Gardner
My name is Nicky Frank. Except, most likely, it isn’t.
Nicole Frank shouldn’t have been able to survive the car accident, much less crawl up the steep ravine. Not in the dark, not in the rain, not with her injuries. But one thought allows her to defy the odds and flag down help: Vero.
I’m looking for a little girl. I have to save her. Except, most likely, she doesn’t exist.
Sergeant Wyatt Foster is frustrated when even the search dogs can’t find any trace of the mysterious missing child. Until Nicky’s husband, Thomas, arrives with a host of shattering revelations: Nicole Frank suffers from a rare brain injury and the police shouldn’t trust anything she says.
My husband claims he’ll do anything to save me. Except, most likely, he can’t.
Who is Nicky Frank, and what happened the night her car sailed off the road? Was it a random accident or something more sinister given the woman’s lack of family and no close friends? The deeper Wyatt digs, the more concerned he becomes. Because it turns out, in the past few months, Nicky has suffered from more than one close accident. . . . In fact, it would appear someone very much wants her dead.
This is my life. Except, most likely, it’s not. Now watch me crash and burn.
What did I think?
Lisa Gardner is a well known author in her genre of books and you can definitely see why. This book had me hooked from the very first paragraph and didn’t let me go the whole way through. The way Gardner has written this book is incredible. You never know what’s around the corner and Gardner has ensured that ‘Crash and Burn’ makes you think you know what direction it’s going in…but then swiftly veers direction when you’re confident you know what’s happening.
I am highly impressed with this book for another reason. This is actually the 3rd book in a series I wasn’t aware of; you could not tell that this book was part of a series (which is great for people like me who hadn’t read the two prior novels). Gardner has explained the characters as if it was the first time the reader is meeting them – something, I find so many authors either forget to do, or completely over-do it and basically rewrite their first book.
Crash and Burn is full of confusion, cliff-hangers, suspense and all round excellence. I urge anyone reading this to give it a go, you won’t be disappointed.
