Find the Girl by Helen Phifer

Find the Girl by Helen Phifer

Find the Girl is a crime thriller and Book 5 in the Detective Morgan Brookes series, though I hadn’t read any of the previous books and it works perfectly well as a standalone.

The story starts back in time, when a twenty-year-old girl gets murdered at Forest Pines campsite. Then we fast forward to the present day when a woman goes missing from the same campsite and the police become involved in the missing person’s case. I really don’t want to give too much away, because it’s a book you want to follow as it all reveals itself.

The story gripped me from the start. At bedtime, I was tired and thought I’d just read a few pages on the Kindle. By the time I went to sleep, I’d read 31% of it and could happily have read more, if my eyes hadn’t started closing! It’s a really exciting, well-paced read which draws you into the action straight away.

Detective Constable Morgan Brookes is the main character and she is excellent, a real police officer with a heart, but every person in the story is well-described and comes to life off the pages. I loved the police team and also Brian.

This is only a short review because I don’t want to give any spoilers, but I absolutely loved the book, it’s a real page-turner and I look forward to reading more of her books.
