Kat Novak is an M.E for the city of Albion. What she thinks is a normal case of O.D turns into something far more sinister. Upon finishing, my first thought was 'I'm glad Tess Gerristen moved away from romance novels and into crime.' According to her introduction Girl Missing was Gerristen's first attempt at mixing both together. While the crime element is superb; the romance is all too cliched and when I read those parts I couldn't help reading them aloud with my best sweeping dramatic, faux romantic voice. I intend to start reading Gerristen's Rizzoli & Isles collection, which has been made into a t.v series, as soon as I can get my hands on the first book.
