pretty little things book coverReviewed by Jenna Arthur

It is every parent’s worst nightmare: a child goes to the library or a friend’s house and disappears into the night. What happens when your child’s abductor lives in your own home…in cyberspace?

When 13-year-old Lainey Emerson goes missing from her small hometown of Coral Springs, Agent Bobby Dees from The Crimes Against Children Unit is put in charge of heading up the search. With his own daughter’s disappearance still haunting him, Dees is forced to confront his past while searching for the worst kind of predator. What he finds is a serial killer with his claws in cyberspace and a taste for young girls.

Jilliane Hoffman grabs the readers by the throat with every twist and turn. With perfectly gripping characters, a concise plot and a villain that will keep you up at night, Pretty Little Things is a must read. With each paint stroke of the infamous Picasso killer, Hoffman joins the ranks of the most respected thriller writers like Tess Gerritsen, Michael Connelly and Patricia Cornwell. And with an ending that will leave you begging for more, Pretty Little Things is Jilliane Hoffman at her best.
