The Missing is the first book in the Darby McCormick series by Chris Mooney.
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
The woman was missing for five years. The Crime Scene Investigator finds her. And the serial killer wants them both dead…When Boston CSI Darby McCormick finds a raving and emaciated woman hiding at the scene of a violent kidnap, she runs a DNA search to identify the Jane Doe. The result confirms she was abducted five years earlier and has somehow managed to escape from the dungeon in which she’s been caged. With a teenage couple also missing and Jane Doe seriously ill, the clock is ticking for Darby as she hunts for the dungeon before anyone else disappears or dies. And when the FBI takes over the investigation, it becomes clear that a sadistic serial killer has been on the prowl for decades – and is poised to strike again at any moment – a killer with links to horrors that Darby has desperately tried to bury in her past
I’m really glad I enjoyed this book because I bought the first 4 in the series!
Darby McCormick and 2 of her school friends witness a murder while taking a walk in the woods. The killer intends to silence them but Darby escapes after seeing one friend stabbed and the other kidnapped.
Fast forward 25 years and Darby is now a crime scene investigator who is investigating a kidnapping that is very similar to her own experience.
It was easy to read and kept me turning the pages. I like Darby and look forward to getting to know her more in the next books.
