In an elite suburb of New York City, girls are dying. That doesn’t happen in Greenvale, with its immaculate lawns, exclusive yacht clubs and multi-million dollar mansions. But behind its perfect façade, its trimmed hedges and luxury cars, a darkness lies. Girls, dependent on Adderall, outmaneuver each other to get into top colleges, while the mothers’ need to live vicariously only makes it worse.
Bella DeFranco is one of the Bronx’s top SVU detectives. At only 37, she disarms everyone with her stunning good looks, yet she is as tough as most men—and a lot smarter, too. Yet when is summoned to Greenvale, she finds herself getting lost in a case that even she can’t comprehend. She stumbles into a land of secrets, a place where husbands hide their pasts from their wives, where friends are not what they seem, and where no one wants to know too much. As she digs deeper into layers of suburban dysfunction, she comes to learn that, behind all the fake smiles, there is a subtle violence--rivaling even her crime-ridden streets of the Bronx.
With a killer on the loose, time running out, and a new partner who never recovered from his washed-up alcoholic days, the odds are stacked against Bella. She is determined, though, to save these girls, whatever the cost. Yet as she gets close, the depth of psychosis she discovers shocks even her….

    Good story , read from start to finish without putting it down. Interesting read . But the wording and spelling was a little off , had to re-read some sentences and there was a couple spelling mistakes.

  • The forgotten girls book 1

    From Dijim76
    I found this book very well written. I didn't put it down until I finished reading it. I had a pretty good idea who the killer was but I couldn't be sure until near the end, as there were a few suspects. Definitely worth the read.

    From SWWthecat
    This book was much better than I initially thought it would be. I thought it would appeal to a younger audience and would be a little rough around the edges. I was wrong. Alexia Steele is the next PD James pursue Grafton, or even the next James Patterson. A good read, I anticipate the next volume and hope it arrives soon.
