Girl Trap (A Madeline Dawkins Mystery Book 3) by Cynthia Hamilton – Review by Karyn Taylor

Girl Trap (Madeline Dawkins #3)Girl Trap by Cynthia Hamilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Girl Trap is the 3rd book in the Madeline Dawkins Series by Cynthia Hamilton. This is a fast paced, thrilling detective series with gripping storylines and great characters. Each book in this series can be read as a stand-alone but I think you’d get a better understanding of Madeline and Mike’s characters and their background.
In Girl Trap, Madeline and Mike are both working on different missing women cases so we get the added bonus of 2 great stories at the same time.
Madeline is looking a Hannah, who has been missing for 10 years. Her mother is dying and wants to reconcile with her estranged daughter before she dies. Well, that’s the story she tells Madeline. What unfolds is a completely different story that has a very unexpected ending that you will not see coming.
At the same time Mike is looking for his cousin Jesse’s missing girlfriend and her sister. I have to say that this particular story had me more gripped than the story Maddie was working on. This storyline leads you into the dark and murky world of woman trafficking.
This book took me a little longer than the first 2 in the series to get gripped by, but once I did, it gripped me hard and I could not put this book down. Cynthia Hamilton sure knows how to write a well thought out thriller that will really have you invested in the story and the characters. The more I read of Madeline and Mike, the ore I come to love and admire that people that they have become. Both have overcome some serious adversity in the years preceding these stories. I can’t wait to see what Cynthia Hamilton has in store next for Maddie and Mike.
