Nobody’s Child [review]

Nobody's Child by Libby Fischer Hellman

[Synopsis]

A bloodstained note left for Chicago PI Georgia Davis reveals the shocking existence of a half-sister she never knew about. That sister, Savannah, is pregnant and begging for Georgia’s help. Determined to track her down, Georgia finds herself heading deep into the dangerous underworld of Chicago’s illegal sex trafficking business.

She soon discovers that trafficking is just a small part of the horrifying and deadly situation in which her new sister is caught up.

Even worse, as Georgia tries to extricate Savannah, she comes up against an old enemy determined to make sure neither woman will escape alive. In the fourth novel of the Georgia Davis series, she faces her toughest challenge yet—and one she might not survive.

Nobody's Child (Georgia Davis, #4)

[My Review]

Nobody’s Child by Libby Fischer Hellmann is a really enjoyable, fast paced mystery novel which had me hooked from beginning to end!

Being the fourth novel in the Georgia Davis series, I was a bit worried that I would need to have read the first 3 to really understand and enjoy Nobody’s Child. There did seem to be some issues from previous novels but the author explained any required information really well, so it wasn’t an issue at all!

The characters were all well developed, with Georgia being a likeable and interesting protagonist. I certainly felt like I wanted to read more about her in the previous three novels. Poor Savannah certainly had a horrendous time of it, and even though she seemed a bit annoying at the beginning I warmed to her as the novel went on.

The story line moved along at a good pace and seemed very well researched- at least as far as I could tell- with issues such as sex trafficking, abuse, robbery among many others. The novel starts off with her investigating a ‘flash rob’ at a shop, and along with this there are a few kind of ‘sub story lines’ too, including Georgia discovering the existence of a half-sister (though this soon becomes the main story line really as the novel continues, in my opinion) and developing a romantic interest in another cop. This blend of mystery, romance and tension created a great novel that I loved reading.

I didn’t feel that any part of the novel was dull and I really raced through it as I didn’t want to put it down! I’d really like to read the first 3 novels and learn more about these characters!

[Rating: 5/5]
