    1. The opening of the book, we are introduced to Amber Amber can hear some sort o drumming sound, but, she doesn t know where its coming from as she is wrapped in complete darkness, wrapped in a thick blanket.She knew she had been doped But, had she been raped She is not the only girl that goes missing the connection through each girl later becomes apparent and the author makes us aware of this at the time The pacing of this thriller is at the correct pace for a story like this at it allows the rea [...]


    2. This series keeps getting better and better An easy 5 star from me A badly decomposed girls body is found in a trunk in a storage unit, after the unit intilly being searched in a drug bust Detective Robyn Carter and her team are brought in to investigate The only clue they have is a mysterious woman dressed in blue who rented the unit and dropped off the trunk As the investigation ensues, there are little or no clues to what happened That is until another girls body turns up Having some similar [...]

    4. This is the third book in Wyer s Robyn Carter series, I absolutely loved the first two books, Little Girl Lost and Secrets of the Dead and I think it s safe to say this is my favorite book thus far It s clear to me that this is the type of series that gets better with each book, this is right up there with two of my other beloved Bookouture series, Robert Bryndza s Erika Foster and Angela Marsons Kim Stone If by chance you re a fan of those two and haven t read this I highly recommend doing so P [...]


    5. With thanks to Netgalley and Bookoutre for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.I really enjoy the DI Robyn Carter series, l think each book has got better and better as her character developed As soon as I found out there was a third book in the series I could not wait to read it.The opening chapter begins with school girl Amber Dalton waking up in a dark room containing nothing but a mattress, wearing just a hospital gown As she felt around the room looking for the door a man app [...]


    6. I lost my reading mojo this week and picked up two books unfortunately neither of them gripped me and I put them to one side So as I loved the previous two books in the Detective Robyn Carter series I decided to read The Missing Girls Although I wasn t even sure if Carol Wyer could help me find my missing mojo huge apologies to the author for doubting her but OMG after reading one very disturbing and chilling chapter I was hooked, so after I kicking myself a few times for not reading this book b [...]


    7. I was pleasantly surprised at how good this was I hesitated to request this because it s the 3rd book in the series I m so glad that I took a chance And, being as it s the 3rd book and I haven t read the others, it could be read as a standalone.Parts of the story were told from the victims voice during their captivity and the other parts from the lead detective, Robyn I really liked Robyn She was a capable detective and a good character to read about As were the other characters The plot was int [...]


    8. If you follow me on Instagram you know that I have a lot of love for the DI Robyn Carter series When Little Girl Lost was released at the beginning of the year, I was blown away when I realized that it was Carol Wyer s first attempt at writing a thriller She writes as though she has many years of experience in the thriller genre Secrets Of The Dead proved to be another great follow up in the series, and Carol Wyer has become an author I will automatically read If you haven t had the pleasure of [...]


    9. donnasbookblog.wordpress The publishers billed this book as an utterly gripping and darkly compelling detective thriller that will have fans of Robert Dugoni, Angela Marsons and James Patterson hooked from the very start They are absolutely stop on it is a brilliant book and you will not guess the ending I have read all of the books in this series now and loved each of them this one is tense and it really does keep you on your toes, I loved the characters from the first two books and I love how [...]


    10. Finished reading August 24th 2017 Words can hurt They can injure as deeply as a knife can, or be as deadly as a gunshot A copy of this book was kindly provided to me by Netgalley and Bookouture in exchange for an honest review Thank you view spoiler The Missing Girls is the third book of a relatively new detective series I ve become addicted to ever since I read the first book back in February I admit it wasn t love at first sight when I first met the main character Robyn Carter, but she has def [...]


    11. 4.5 stars.This was goood A dead girl is accidentally found in a trunk in a storage depot The investigation focuses on the woman dressed in blue who delivered the trunk but she is proving difficult to track down More bodies turn up and DI Robyn Carter has a serial killer on her hands This was a lovely twisty story that had me guessing The identity of the killer was quite a surprise although towards the end I started to figure out where this was going.The characters continue to be developed but to [...]


    12. Goodness gracious me, this series just keeps getting better and better The third instalment in the DI Robyn Carter series starts off with a truly gut wrenching and harrowing chapter Just like that, I knew I was in for another treat.When DI Shearer is given a tip about drugs stashed away in a storage unit, things don t quite go as planned There are no drugs There is however a trunk with the body of a young woman inside CCTV footage reveals very little and the woman who left the trunk in the unit [...]

    15. My full review will be posted soon, but I just have to say WOW WOW WOW What an outstanding ending Can t wait for book four


    16. Another solid read featuring Robyn Carter and her team trying to catch a serial killer, someone who may be using social media to hunt for their next victims This third book in the series carries on the rivalry from the first two books between DI Carter and DI Tom Shearer Shearer is his usual arrogant self, jumping on the good drug busts and leaving Carter to handle the annoying and unsavoury discovery of a body wrapped in plastic Their new DCI Richard Flint is no fan of Carter s investigative sk [...]


    17. This is book 3 in the Robyn Carter series but work very well as stand alone.Girls are going missing turning up dead and the team are struggling to find a link When another girl goes missing the race is on to join up the dots before another body turns up.I downloaded this book from Netgalley some time ago but due to commitments I had to shelve it half way through Maybe it is the gap, maybe it is because I have read so many astounding books this year but I felt this one didn t quite give me the bu [...]


    18. This is the third novel already where DI Robyn Carter investigates a case, and now I m certain than ever that this is a series to follow with each new book she publishes I liked the second novel but I do feel this one s stronger, with a very good plotline and a real motive She scores high points in my books Robyn and her team, Mitz and Anna, Ross and even Shearer are also all really starting to grow on me and it was a warm welcome to see them back.I m not going into the plot because there reall [...]


    19. I love it when you finish and book and immediately pine for the next one and this was one of those books I had read the first two books in this series and loved them so started this book with fingers crossed that it would be as good as the last two I need not have worried in just a chapter in and I knew it would be a brilliant read The thing I love most about these books is that you almost feel like you are part of the team, you get pulled head first into the story and exit with a serious book h [...]


    20. We are back with Robyn Carter and the team and I feel like this series is building in pace and couldn t wait to get started on this new one A body of a girl, 16 year old Carrie Miller is found in a trunk and Robyn and the team are working on the case We see the return of the cracking characters that form part of the team such as Mitz and Anna, as well as a somewhat likeable DI Tom Shearer Robyn s new boss Flint however is not somebody that has gelled well and it s not going to be easy for Robyn [...]


    21. For those that follow my reviews they may recall that I wasn t a great fan of this series in the early days, however I m pleased to say that I am so glad I stuck with it as I feel invested in the main characters now This third instalment is definitely the best yet and based on the final two chapters I cannot wait for number four I d like to see Robyn Tom Shearer work a case together, or perhaps have Robyn confide in him regarding her personal shock revelation that has just been dropped on her wo [...]


    22. Carol Wyer does it again I love this series each book in this series is perfection I started this one wary how could this author better her absolutely brilliant previous two reads in this series But that s exactly what she has done This amazing book delivers on every level it packs a gut wrenching punch, there are twists galore and the story blew me away The characterization is spot on, every single character believable and well rounded, their motives and actions absolutely spot on This is a boo [...]


    23. This is a great series and this story really kept me on the edge of my seat throughout There are lots of girls going missing and DI Robyn Carter faces a race against time to catch the killer When a girl goes missing who Robyn knows well, she realises that she can t let the killer get away with this and puts everything in to getting her back This book also ends on a HUGE cliffhanger so I can t wait to read the next book


    24. This is the 3rd book in the DI Robyn Carter series I have read and enjoyed all 3 books But this one started out slow for me and it was over halfway through the book before I got into it I was also getting irked by the mundane references to the dead fiancee Made sure she ate and got her to use post it notes, really All in all, the writing was good and the story was interesting with a twist It also left quite a cliffhanger so I guess I will be reading the next book too.I would like to thank NetGal [...]



    25. I was really eager to read the third book in the Robyn Carter series I love her character and this latest investigation I enjoyed every page and couldn t wait to read and find out how they were going to find this killer.You can just imagine yourself in the police investigation, looking at all the coloured post it notes wondering what connections will be found and looking for clues with each suspect At one point I was certain it was going to be one suspect but we are led into other avenues and [...]


    26. This is the third book in the DI Robyn Carter series and it couldn t have been any better than it was This was such a fantastic book and Carol deserves so much credit for her amazing writing This is one of my absolute favorite series and I cannot get enough After reading this I am even pumped for the fourth installment coming in December The books starts with a gripping beginning that pulls you in so far that you know that you cant back out and stop reading anytime soon A girl wakes up and real [...]


    27. Holy freaking hell what a book I am still trying to compose myself after devouring this book in one afternoon Well where do I start.First of all I have to say that Carol moving over to the dark side was the best thing she could of done After reading Little Girl Lost which is the first one in the Robyn Carter series I was totally blown away Now three books later I am totally blown away three times over she doesn t take no prisoners in this latest installment This story starts off with a chapter a [...]


    28. The Missing Girls is the third novel in the D.I Robyn Carter Series and it s the best one yet It starts with Amber Dalton waking up with a throbbing head In a dark empty room apart from a mattress she is lying on and wearing something unfamiliar and rough material The last thing she remembered she was wearing her pleated black skirt and silk blouse She moves and feels around the room to find a door and then she realises that someone is in the room with her There is a piercing light comes from a [...]


    29. This the the third book in the series featuring DI Robyn Carter and her team, it can be read as a standalone book but if you read them in order all the characters become your friends as in each book you learn about them The Missing Girls is very topical as it touches on cyber bullying Robyn is faced with one body and other suspected missing girls and has to link them together before time runs out There are plenty of twists and turns and a huge shock at the end leaving you in anticipation for Ca [...]
