Everyone in the small town of Denton is searching for Isabelle Coleman, a missing 17-year-old girl. All they've found so far is her phone and another girl they didn't even know was missing. Mute and completely unresponsive to the world around her, it's clear this mysterious girl has been damaged beyond repair. All Detective Josie Quinn can get from her is a name: Ramona. Currently suspended from the force for misconduct, Josie takes matters into her own hands as the name leads her to evidence linking the two girls.

I actually listened to the second book in this series first. This author is new to me, and I like her books so far. However, I’m not sure I can continue to listen to them. This narrator is one of the worst ones I’ve heard, and I’ve listened to a lot of audiobooks. I’m guessing she’s from another country, judging by the way she mispronounces so many words. For example, the state of Maryland was pronounced Mary-land. Estrogen was east-rogen. Record, as in “for the record” was Rec-CORD. Ugh! Those are just a few examples. I almost can’t stand to listen to her! And the way she talks makes the characters come off as very aggressive. I’ve found myself cringing multiple times while listening to her narrate. It looks like I may be reading the other books in this series. So best of luck to those who decide to listen to this story or any other in this series.
