From the author of the Jack Winchester series...

Another new and outstanding book by Jon Mills, author of the Jack Winchester series. First I would like to say that I hope Mills isn’t done with Winchester , I really like that series.
This book is the first book in the Ben Forrester series. I know there has to be a second one coming because this book end with a cliffhanger! Ben hunts serial killers and he’s good at his job. A killer he’s hunting abducts his wife and son and and leaves a clue where to find them. When Ben locates them they’re already deceased and had been for hours. Ben’s daughter hadn’t been taken and so he leaves the agency to heal and keep his daughter safe. Unbeknownst to Ben and the local law enforcement there is a serial killer who had been at work for years in the area he moved to.
This is a great cat and mouse story with the life of Ben’s daughter at stake.
Peter Kenyon does a great job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Great start to a new Jon Mills series!

Author Jon Mills already has the outstanding Jack Winchester series. His new Ben Forrester FBI series promises to be just as good based on LOST GIRLS which is Book 1 in the series. The publisher's summary is a bit sparse. FBI agent Ben Forrester's wife and son are killed in Florida by a serial murderer, so he takes his teen daughter to live in Maine near his mother-0in-law. Although he is on leave with the FBI he is forced to join a manhunt for the killers of girls there. Peter Kenyon narrates very well. This novel was my first exposure to his work.

Amazing gripping and suspenseful thriller

Ben left the FBI years ago after losing his son and wife to a serial killer. There is now a serial killer hunting girls, and when Ben's daughter is taken by the new killer, Ben must get back to work to try and find the elusive man and save his daughter.

What a gripping and suspenseful thriller! The story was excellent. It had a good pace, and kept my interest throughout. I love how you get to hear the perspective of the killer and what he is thinking; its very interesting, particularly given the profiling work Ben does during the chase.

Peter provided a great performance for the story. He had good intonation and was a perfect fit for the thriller. He really made the story even more enjoyable for me.

I highly recommend this book and since it is the first, i look forward to hearing more in the series!

Slow burn to an adrenaline-fueled ending..........

Lost Girls is the first book in a new series by the author of the Jack Winchester Series. Since I am a big fan of those books, I decided to take a chance on Lost Girls, and I am so happy that I did. The book starts at a fairly sedate pace as the author introduces us to Ben Forrester, a former FBI agent whose mental and physical health were severely impacted when a serial killer targeted his family. He is now living in a remote town in Maine with his sole remaining family members, his teenage daughter Chloe and his mother in law. Forrester splits his time remotely training future FBI agents, spending as much time as possible with his daughter, and avoiding anything that would suck him back into his previous career. This endeavor is seriously hampered when a young detective, Dakota Woods, asks for his help in what she is certain is a string of murders. Forrester reluctantly agrees to review her case files but limits his involvement until the case suddenly becomes personal. At this point, hold on because the action is non-stop until the nail-biting ending.

Although I thoroughly enjoyed the action and excitement of the later scenes, I also enjoyed the relationship of Forrester and his daughter as well as his interactions with Woods. She is my favorite type of main character. She is smart, tough and determined, but she was also willing to learn everything she could from Forrester's greater experience and broader background. Against overwhelming resistance from her boss, the sheriff, Woods and Forrester painstakingly investigate all of the deaths and attempt to piece together the killer's identity from multiple years of inept investigations. The author offers much misdirection and red herrings, and I was continually second guessing my decisions about the guilty party. I can hardly wait to see what new investigations Mills has in store for this intrepid detective duo in the (hopefully!) near future.

This was my first exposure to Peter Kenyon, and I was pleasantly surprised. His narration is excellent with a flawless performance and lively delivery. He does an especially good impersonation of a psycho on the scattered chapters told from the killer's point of view. As with my desire to read more about Forrester and Woods, I am equally looking forward to hearing more from Kenyon.

excellent FBI thriller

FBI agent, and profiler, Dr. Ben Forrest, was pursuing a serial killer when that killer sets his sight on Ben's family. Now years later, Ben and his teenage daughter are living in the quiet town of Eden Falls, Maine, where life is slowly returning to normal. Then there is a sudden appearance of girls that have been missing for years, and local rookie police detective, Dakota Woods, asks for Ben's help...defying her police chief. When Ben's daughter is kidnapped, he has a vested interest in bringing the killer to justice and finding her alive! Lots of action, maybe corrupt politicians (no spoilers here)...and a very determined rookie detective. Exciting story and you really won't guess the ending! Great start to this series.

New Series Thriller

I absolutely loved listening to this book with good characters and much serial killer description. Ben Forrester left the FBI after his wife and son were killed by a serial killer. The Eden Falls Police in Maine asks for his help with a similar serial killer of young girls and teamed with Dakota Woods. While investigating his daughter Chloe is taken, there is much action, suspense and surprise ending. Recommend author’s Jack Winchester Thriller Series if you enjoy this one. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Thank you

Another great series from Jon Mills!!!

I love the Debt Collector/Jack Winchester series by Jon Mills, so when I saw this was the start of a new series from Mills, I couldn’t wait to
start listening! And, I was not disappointed! This is an excellent start to the series! True to Mills’ form, it grabbed my attention from the very beginning. I couldn’t stop listening and finished the book in one sitting. I will be anxiously awaiting the next book in the series; automatic download for me! Peter Kenyon did a great job with the narration, too. I absolutely recommend this book and any other by Mills. If you haven’t listened to the Debt Collector series, you should go listen while waiting for the next book in this series!
