Overview
Private investigator Tess Grey and her ex-con partner Po investigate the disappearance of a troubled young woman in this fast-paced action thriller.

PI Tess Grey and her partner Nicolas 'Po' Villere have been hired by Margaret Norris to find her granddaughter, Jasmine Reed, who has been missing for sixteen days. But if Tess is to have any chance of finding Jazz, she needs to know the truth about the young woman's troubled past. What is it that Margaret Norris isn't telling her?
Tess and Po aren't the only ones looking for Jazz. With shady local businessman Daryl Bruin and his henchman John Trojak also on her trail, as well as a mysterious - and violent - stranger, Tess prays, for Jasmine's sake, that she and Po find her first. But it's only when Tess uncovers a link to several other missing girls that she begins to make headway in the investigation - and finds herself in a desperate race against time to track down Jazz before it's too late.

Clichéd characters, some of whom speak in overdone dialect (Going to step out and stretch my legs, me), mar British author Hiltons sequel to Blood Tracks. Portland, Maine, PI Tess Grey and her lover/assistant, Nicolas Po Villere, are searching for troubled, tattooed 24-year-old Jasmine Reed, who has disappeared. Tess and Po talk to strip-club owner Maxwell Carter, who says that he offered Jasmine a job as a dancer, but she turned him down because she still bears the scars from being cut up by an assailant. Tess is the first to figure out that two other women with tattoos and scars have gone missing, both last seen in the vicinity of a major highway in Massachusetts. Tess also identifies a suspect, who was the son of parents who briefly fostered Jasmine when she was a rebellious teen. Meanwhile, the sadist who has kidnapped, raped, and tortured young women continues to torment his prisoners. The relentlessly grim action builds to a messy, violent conclusion. (Dec.)
