Review - Case Study by C.R. Cardin
No. of Pages - 291
Rating 5 out of 5
Taylor Case is a professor of Forensic Science at Georgetown University. It's a career that gives her both opportunity and expertise for her other life. She hunts down child predators, a career that helps her cope with the disappearance of her brother in her childhood. When she learns that Kevin, a friend of her young nephew, has disappeared Taylor becomes impatient with the FBI's investigation and strikes out to find the boy herself. Using her expertise in forensics and computers Taylor begins the hunt knowing full well she must find Kevin soon or history will repeat itself.
Once in a while I come across a book that really hooks and keeps me engrossed to the end. Case Study is such a book. Cardin's main character is well developed and the plot has many twists and turns that kept me wondering how things would turn out. Even though the topic of child abduction is a difficult one it was sensitively handled. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading more by this author.
