Bring Her Home by David Bell

Genre: Mystery/Suspense
Publisher: Berkley
Release Date: July 11, 2017

Bring Her Home offers a chilling tale about two teens who are found near dead in a local park. When widower Bill Price gets the call that his missing 15-year-old daughter was found beaten to near death and that her best friend was found dead, he's despondent and rushes to hold vigil. His daughter is unrecognizable and may suffer permanent brain injury due to the beating she took.

As time passes, Bill starts to uncover startling truths that make him doubt what he really knows about his daughter. As the case progresses, more is revealed leading Bill and investigators to really wonder just what is going on and who can really be trusted.

There are parts of Bring Her Home that I found very easy to solve. Usually, I'd find that to be a bit of a letdown, but that's not the case here. Even though I'd solved some of the mystery, I was still intrigued. The plot progresses with twists and turns hitting regularly. The more I figured I'd solved, the more I found myself having a hard time putting the book down. I had to know if my instincts were right and I needed to get to the truth.

At heart, Bring Her Home focuses on the murdered teen, the teen that's barely alive, and then there's a missing teen. The cases appear to be linked, but the more you read, the more you start to wonder. That makes for time well spent on this chilling summer read.
