Review
  • The unthinkable has happened to Judge Hope Willis: her young daughter, Krissy, has been kidnapped. Hope has lived through a kidnapping before, when her twin sister was taken and never returned. She knows law enforcement will do everything possible, but she wants more, so she calls Forensic Instincts.This is Casey Woods’ brainchild, a team of handpicked experts with the skill set to get results without worrying about the legalities. Casey begins at the judge’s home, where flags come up as she observes the judge’s husband and the nanny. Why was Krissy taken? The team knows that they must work fast to bring Krissy back. As the lives of the Willis family are dissected, many scenarios and suspects seem possible: someone from court, the judge’s fired assistant, clients from her husband’s law firm. Or is this case connected to the disappearance of Hope’s sister? Kane highlights each of the team’s fortes as they race against the clock to bring the little girl back in this well-crafted, fast-paced suspense thriller, which leaves the door open for more Forensic Instincts adventures. -- Engelmann, Patty (Reviewed 05-01-2011) (Booklist, vol 107, number 17, p26)
  • At the outset of this exciting if pat thriller from Kane (Dark Room), White Plains, N.Y., family court judge Hope Willis is not only terrified by the kidnapping of her five-year-old daughter, Krissy, but also devastated, because the crime is identical to the kidnapping of Hope's twin sister 32 years earlier. To find Krissy before the unthinkable happens, Willis hires Forensic Instincts, a crack investigation firm whose private status allows its members to get around procedures that those in law enforcement have to adhere to—like warrants. Led by profiler Casey Woods, the Forensic Instincts team barrels into a snarl of suspects, secrets, and conspiracies. Smooth prose and engaging characters help offset some fairly obvious plot twists, a few of which stretch credibility to the breaking point. Also somewhat unbelievable are the near-infallible skills of Forensic Instincts' members and the willingness of dozens of police officers and FBI agents to let the team skirt legal boundaries repeatedly with no more than a harsh word or two of censure. (June) --Staff (Reviewed May 9, 2011) (Publishers Weekly, vol 258, issue 19, p)
