Nearly Gone

Nearly Gone
by Elle Cosimano
Publisher:  Kathy Dawson Books 
Release Date: March 25th, 2014

Bones meets Fringe in a big, dark, scary, brilliantly-plotted urban thriller that will leave you guessing until the very end.

Nearly Boswell knows how to keep secrets. Living in a DC trailer park, she knows better than to share anything that would make her a target with her classmates. Like her mother's job as an exotic dancer, her obsession with the personal ads, and especially the emotions she can taste when she brushes against someone's skin. But when a serial killer goes on a killing spree and starts attacking students, leaving cryptic ads in the newspaper that only Nearly can decipher, she confides in the one person she shouldn't trust: the new guy at school—a reformed bad boy working undercover for the police, doing surveillance. . . on her.

Nearly might be the one person who can put all the clues together, and if she doesn't figure it all out soon—she'll be next.

Why I'm Waiting...

I'm not a big mystery/thriller reader and neither is Becca, but we both agreed that this one looks very compelling! First of all - Bones meets Fringe...umm YES! I'll bite. And nothing screams thriller like some upper lip sweat. Hoping this one turns out great :)
