At long last, fans of the “Nikki Boyd Files” series by Lisa Harris will discover the truth about the ongoing mystery (Nikki’s missing sister) that left investigators (and readers!) puzzled for so long. “Vanishing Point” is “A Nikki Boyd Novel”, and ties in with “Vendetta”, “Missing”, and “Pursued” of the “Nikki Boyd Files” published by Revell over the past few years.
Although this book is not told from Nikki Boyd’s perspective as the other novels in the saga are, “Vanishing Point” still follows the gripping tale of the race to discover the identity of the Angel Abductor – a man who terrorized parts of Tennessee for many years by kidnapping multiple young girls.
While I am glad to finally discover the secrets behind a story that began 4 books ago, I felt that “Vanishing Point” dragged along in some places and felt forced in others. In addition, throwing new central characters into the story was a little confusing, and the many years that were skipped between sections of the book added to an overall disjointed feel.
So, in the end, was the climax worth the wait and a mediocre story? Well. . . it was interesting, but not especially surprising or even very dramatic. I’m glad I finished reading the series and now know what happened to Sarah Boyd. However, I do not plan to read another series by Lisa Harris, and would not recommend her as a top author of Christian Romantic Suspense.
