She investigates missing persons -- now she is one.
Private investigator Jessica Shaw is used to getting anonymous tips. But after receiving a photo of a three-year-old kidnapped from Los Angeles twenty-five years ago, Jessica is stunned to recognize the little girl as herself.
Eager for answers, Jessica heads to LA's dark underbelly. When she learns that her biological mother was killed the night she was abducted, Jessica's determined to solve a case the police have forgotten. Meanwhile, veteran LAPD detective Jason Pryce is in the midst of a gruesome investigation into a murdered college student moonlighting as a prostitute. A chance encounter leads to them crossing paths, but Jessica soon realizes that Pryce is hiding something about her father's checkered history and her mother's death.
To solve her mother's murder and her own disappearance, Jessica must dig into the past and find the secrets buried there. But the air gets thinner as she crawls closer to the truth, and it's getting harder and harder to breathe.
My Mom’s Book Club chose this for our September BOTM (Book of the Month). We had never read a Lisa Gray book. I will now be looking for more from Lisa Gray. I found Thin Air to be easy to read. The characters were easy to enjoy, some I liked while some I did not. The storyline was easy to follow and kept me entertained from the very beginning. Thin Air is the first book in the Jessica Gray series, and I will be interested to read more of this series.
This is a mystery book with many interesting twists and turns. There are a few twists and turns that could have been left out and a few that needed a little more attention but overall, I really enjoyed taking the ride that Lisa Gray wrote. I thought it was interesting that the first book in the series has a PI investigating herself. I am intrigued to see where the next book will take Jessica Shaw.
