Introduction

Title: Vanishing point: A Nikki Boyd novel

Author: Lisa Harris

Publisher: Revell

Publication Date: 2017

Format: Paperback

Length: 305 pages

OVERVIEW

Sounds just like a television program or movie. Six girls missing and the the killer leaves a calling card at each murder scene, a Polaroid picture taken just before his victim dies. Garrett Addison’s first week on the job finds him investigating the murder of another young girl, one in a string of such slayings. Of course, the FBI is called in and Garrett is paired with the woman he once loved, Special Agent Jordan Lambert, still as beautiful as ever. And that killer – he is not yet finished nor is he finished with Jordan herself!

This is a good solid mystery, believable and compelling. The amount of years that the mystery remains unsolved is certainly credible but to consider that it takes that long for Garrett and Jordan decide they are really made for each other is a little hard to fathom.

Revell, the publisher of this book, is committed to bring the Christian into everyday life and they have accomplished this in Vanishing Point.

Suggested Audience

Adult fiction readers, particularly those who enjoy a good mystery.

Christian Impact

The author herself states in interview questions, when asked what lessons does she hope readers take away from reading Vanishing Point ” One of the main questions asked in the novel is, where is God when tragedy strikes?…Just because God doesn’t intervene in a situation doesn’t mean he isn’t there. In fact, He is there, but He has decided not to just sweep down and fix our problems every time something goes wrong,  Instead He chose to redeem us eternally by sending His son.”
