TUESDAY EXCERPTS: “WHEN YOU SEE ME”

Welcome to another Tuesday celebrating bookish events: First Chapter/Intros, originally hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea and now hosted by I’d Rather Be at the Beach; and Teaser Tuesdays hosted by The Purple Booker.

Today’s feature is a new book from a favorite author:  When You See Me, by Lisa Gardner.

(Prologue) My mother likes to hum.  She stands at the stove, stirring this, tasting that, and humming, humming, humming.

I sit in a chair by the table.  I have a job. Grate the cheese.  It’s an easy job.  The queso blanco crumbles to the touch.  But I’m proud to do my part.

Teaser:  “You will order.  You will eat.  You are part of a taskforce now, and you owe it to the rest of us to pull your shit together and keep functional. Got it?”

Synopsis:  FBI Special Agent Kimberly Quincy and Sergeant Detective D. D. Warren have built a task force to follow the digital bread crumbs left behind by deceased serial kidnapper Jacob Ness. When a disturbing piece of evidence is discovered in the hills of Georgia, they bring Flora Dane and true-crime savant Keith Edgar to a small town where something seems to be deeply wrong. What at first looks like a Gothic eeriness soon hardens into something much more sinister…and they discover that for all the evil Jacob committed while alive, his worst secret is still to be revealed. Quincy and DD must summon their considerable skills and experience to crack the most disturbing case of their careers—and Flora must face her own past directly in the hope of saving others.

What do you think? I have been following this series and love everything about the characters.  Would you keep reading?
