Missing Before Daylight, by Carolyn Arnold

Missing Before Daylight book cover
A teenager is shot dead in a gas station and another woman abducted. An investigation reveals that Katherine received anonymous threatening letters but who and why…?
Missing Before Daylight is the 10th book in the Detective Amanda Steele series. There are references to personal plotlines that have evolved over the series, but no spoilers about earlier crimes and culprits.
The book begins with the heartbreaking murder of a young woman. There is no apparent motive but Amanda Steele sees her former colleague Katherine being abducted by the killer when she watches the CCTV. Kat has been involved in solving many crimes and has made a lot of enemies so Amanda needs to discover who wanted revenge.
The book is written in the third person to show us the perspectives of the detectives, the victims and the perpetrators. The chapters are quite short so the pace of the plot rattles along speedily. Both of these features build the tension as we hope for Amanda and her team to find the truth as soon as possible.
The romantic tension between Amanda and Trent continues to shimmer almost uncomfortably. They are both in other relationships but cannot help the way that they feel about each other, even if they cannot fully admit it to themselves.
Missing Before Daylight is an entertaining crime thriller and police procedural.

About the Book: 
She wakes surrounded by an inky black darkness and can barely breathe. A sack is covering her head, and her hands are tied behind her back. She desperately tries to struggle free as she hears footsteps walking toward her. She silently starts to cry as a chilling voice whispers “It’s time to pay for what you did…”
When Detective Amanda Steele is called to the murder scene of a young gas station clerk just before dawn, she assumes it must be a robbery gone tragically wrong. But when she discovers nothing has been stolen, she knows the motive must be far more personal.
Watching the security footage, Amanda is shocked to witness the cold-blooded killer not only shoot the clerk dead but abduct a customer. And her heart stops when she recognizes the customer as her former colleague, Katherine Graves. As Amanda breaks the news to Katherine’s heartbroken Aunt May, she vows to do whatever it takes to bring her niece home alive.
Desperate for a lead, Amanda and her partner, Trent, search Katherine’s home. Soon, they discover that despite no longer being with the police department, Katherine has a long list of very dangerous enemies. Enemies who have been sending her anonymous letters promising revenge.
The more Amanda digs into Katherine’s past, the longer her list of suspects becomes. But when May is sent a ransom demand and a picture of Katherine close to death, Amanda knows time is running out. With only hours left to find Katherine alive, Amanda is prepared to risk everything to keep her promise to May, even her own life…
A completely pulse-pounding and unputdownable crime thriller, perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Robert Dugoni and Rachel Caine.
