"Another Great Thriller"

When Detective Conner Nolan comes up missing, everyone thinks he's just off on another drinking binge. Or maybe he's drinking and shacked up with a woman. Maybe he's even on a drug binge once they find out about his past. Everyone that is except for his partner Rhianna Marek. Rhianna knows in her heart that none of this could be true. The longer he is gone the more concerned she becomes. After Conner has been missing for awhile Rhianna is finally able to convince her fellow officers that something is wrong. They launch an investigation to find him. Although their relationship has only thus far been platonic Rhianna has loved Conner for quite some time. During the investigation she finds quite a few things out about him. Things his shrew of a sister makes to inform her of.

After Conner has been missing for some time Rhianna decides to move into his home. To be there when he does eventually turn up. Not only does Rhianna have to deal with Conner missing she has to deal with his sister and C.C. Corbettson. Corbettson is a fellow officer obsessed with Rhianna and determined to have her whatever way necessary.

When Conner does finally turn up he is a drug addict and has to be hospitalized. Problem is he was an unwilling addict. When Rhiannna and his fellow officers investigate they find that this has happened to others from Conners past. Someone that's holding a grudge from the past has been kidnapping them, forcefully getting them addicted to drugs and then letting them go to have to deal with the repercussions of that addiction.

The questions that need answering are who is doing this? Why are they doing it, and what do they have planned next? All of these questions will have you on the edge of your seat until you find the answers. The last question is how will this story turn out? The answer to that is not quite what you will expect.

I must say I have not yet read a book yet by Charlotte Boyett-Compo that I didn't like, and this one is no exception. At the risk of sounding redundant this book is great.
