Cry for Mercy

Karen Long

It should have been the best day of her life. It became the last.

Lydia’s mouth curls into a delighted smile as she spots the man in front of her on the quiet, suburban street. She has been expecting him, and she feels like the luckiest girl alive as she steps into the waiting car.

But Lydia isn’t as lucky as she thought—not when her parents frantically report that she never came home last night.

Not when her body is found, carefully displayed in an abandoned warehouse, miles from home.

And then another woman goes missing. How many more will disappear before her twisted killer is uncovered?
