Goodreads:  When two eighteen-year-old girls go missing in Thailand, their families are thrust into the international spotlight: desperate, bereft, and frantic with worry. What were the girls up to before they disappeared?

Journalist Kate Waters always does everything she can to be first to the story, first with the exclusive, first to discover the truth--and this time is no exception. But she can't help but think of her own son, whom she hasn't seen in two years, since he left home to go traveling.

As the case of the missing girls unfolds, they will all find that even this far away, danger can lie closer to home than you might think...

Kritters Thoughts:  The third in the Kate Waters series and this may be my favorite!  Two girls go missing in Thailand and Kate is swept up into the story until the story hits very close to home and she becomes a subject in the story instead of a reporter on the story.  

There are two things I completely love about this book, the short chapters and the pacing.  I think they go hand in hand, but this book read so quickly because I couldn't put it down and every time I said one more chapter it ended up bring a few more!  I read this book in a few sittings, but all in one day.  I just needed to find out who was responsible and how it all happened.  

This book reminded me of a movie and to this moment I can't put my finger on the title.  Girls going to Thailand and getting caught up in mischief and bad things happen sounds like the plot of a few movies!  

The cast of characters in this book was so fully developed.  From Kate the main character to the mothers and fathers of the girls in Thailand - I even really enjoyed Kate's co workers who really become a part of the story when she has to take her reporter hat off and becomes a player in the story.  I may have said this when reviewing previous books in this series but it so interesting to read through the perspective of a reporter instead of a police person when an investigation is happening.  It seems like a different take on the same story.

I will continue to read Kate Waters' stories if there are more, I love her as a main character and the stories that she gets involved with.     

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
