In Still See You Everywhere, the third installment of Lisa Gardner’s Frankie Elkin series, we follow our protagonist to a remote atoll in the middle of the Pacific in her efforts to find the younger sister of serial killer Kaylee “Keahi” Pierson dubbed by the media as the “Beautiful Butcher” and guilty of eighteen proven murders.

Over twelve years ago, after a particularly violent episode involving her wealthy, influential and abusive boyfriend Sanders “Mac” MacManus left Keahi hospitalized, her younger sister Leilani “Lea” then only five years old, disappeared without a trace. When Keahi receives a letter she believes was written by Lea, she has reason to believe that Mac has been holding Lea against her will. Barely three weeks before her scheduled execution Keahi, who has had a tragic and violent past but shows no remorse for her actions, asks Frankie to save Lea, who she believes will be accompanying Mac to an isolated Hawaiian island, the site for his latest business venture. Aided by Keahi’s lawyer, Frankie secures employment on the isolated island. Surrounded by dangers- both natural and man-made- with limited outside communication and among strangers, some of whom are harboring their own secrets, Frankie just might be out of her depth.

Still See You Everywhere by Lisa Gardner is an immersive, suspenseful thriller with plenty of twists and turns that keeps you hooked until the very last page. I was drawn to the premise of the novel and loved the setting. After an intriguing start, the novel slows down considerably as we meet the characters and are treated to a detailed description of the island’s flora and fauna before picking up again for an action-packed finale. Despite some minor repetition and pacing issues, there were enough surprises and red herrings along the way. I should mention that a few of the twists, though shocking, weren’t quite convincing. I don’t mind suspension of disbelief, but a few of the revelations bordered on absurd. I’ve enjoyed the previous books in the series and I do find the protagonist interesting, but I was disappointed with the lack of character development. I thought Frankie spent too much time brooding over her troubled past, wallowing in self-pity and lacked the sharpness that defined her character in the previous books.

Overall, despite the intriguing premise and atmospheric setting, I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the previous installments but do look forward to reading more from Lisa Gardner in the future and will be eagerly awaiting the next book in the series!

The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner
Detective D. D. Warren series #3. Thriller. Can be read as a stand-alone. See trigger warnings online.
A young mother, blond, pretty, disappears without a trace from her South Boston home, leaving her four-year-old daughter behind as the only witness. The husband is secretive and not fully sharing everything with the police. When Detective D. D. Warren arrives, she doesn’t believe she is getting full access or disclosure. There is something more going on and the child may know more than she’s capable of processing, let alone sharing. Is the daughter safe? What about the neighbors?

Oh, these stories are twisted! With twist you won’t see coming. Is it the husband? Is it someone else? It’s intense and compelling.
Some of this authors work is very hard to reconcile. It’s a hard world and she doesn’t go easy. The storytelling is phenomenal.

Say Goodbye by Lisa Gardner
FBI Profiler series #6. Mystery thriller. Trigger warning: child molestation.
FBI Specal Agent Kimberly Quincy is interviewing a pregnant hooker who swears she has information on a serial killer. She may be too close to the case since her own mother and sister were victims of a serial killer. More, she’s five months pregnant and getting pressure to quit from the baby’s father. When Kimberly starts getting calls with sounds of torture, she’s not about to give up the case. But can she figure it out before the next person is killed?

Multiple threads in this story, at least one from a victim.
Lots of twists. Lots of spiders.
Creepy, and horrifying.

Still See You Everywhere by Lisa Gardner
Frankie Elkin series #3. Thriller, mystery. Can be read as a stand-alone bit better as part of the series to get to know Frankie.
Frankie Elkin has made her life all about finding missing people. In particular, those that have been gone for a long time, or that the world simply doesn’t care about anymore. She has worked in urban jungles, small towns, national forests, and more. She moves from place to place deciding on which case to take next.
Frankie travels to a remote Hawaiian island, isolated and sparse, to find a long-lost sister of a female serial killer. Not many people would be willing to help, but Frankie finds something intriguing in case of the then five-year old Leilani. No phone service. An incoming storm. And then the first body is found.

Yikes. Wasn’t sure Frankie was going to make it out alive. I thought the national forest case was intense. You can’t walk off an island in the middle of the pacific.
