9780345549624: Girl Missing (Previously published as Peggy Sue Got Murdered): A Novel

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER · From Tess Gerritsen, bestselling author of the Rizzoli & Isles series, her stunning first thriller!
 
A beautiful young woman’s corpse is found dumped in a garbage-strewn alley. Now laid out in the office of medical examiner Kat Novak is an unidentified body that betrays no secrets—except for a matchbook clutched in one stiff hand, seven numbers scrawled inside. When a second victim is discovered, Kat begins to fear that a serial killer is stalking the streets, using a deadly drug to do his dirty work. The police are skeptical. The mayor won’t listen. One of the town’s most prominent citizens, with a missing daughter of his own, is also Kat’s chief suspect. As the death toll rises, Kat races to expose a deadly predator who is close enough to touch her.
 
Praise for Tess Gerritsen
 
“[The author] has a knack for creating great characters and mysterious plots that seem straightforward but also dazzle with complexity and twists.”—Associated Press
 
“[Gerritsen] has an imagination that allows her to conjure up depths of human behavior so dark and frightening that she makes Edgar Allan Poe and H. P. Lovecraft seem like goody-two-shoes.”Chicago Tribune
 
“One of the most versatile voices in thriller fiction today.”—The Providence Journal
 
Previously published as Peggy Sue Got Murdered

From the Back Cover:

Danielle Steel sweeps us from the gritty chaos of Manhattan’s criminal court system to the the cool gentility of the Deep South in her powerful novel — at once a chilling story of crime and punishment and a behind-closed-doors look into the heart of a family. Steel nimbly creates two complete and vivid worlds as a mother and daughter begin separate lives — one in corporate Manhattan, fighting to put a serial killer behind bars; the other in sultry Charleston, reconnecting with the father she's barely known. An audiobook that will catch you off guard at every turn, this is Danielle Steel at her electrifying best. Danielle Steel has been hailed as one of the world's most popular authors, with over 580 million copies of her novels sold.
