Carla Kovach

If you love heart-stopping crime thrillers, then look no further than the Gina Harte series. Gripping from page one and with a pace that doesn’t let up, you’ll be hooked!

The first three books in this addictive series see Detective Gina Harte tested to her limits as she faces the toughest cases of her career, whilst battling her own personal demons.

The Next Girl: She thought he’d come to save her. She was wrong.

Deborah Jenkins pulls her coat around her for the short walk home in the pouring rain. But she never makes it home that night. And she is never seen again…

Four years later, an abandoned baby girl is found wrapped in dirty rags on a doorstep. An anonymous phone call urges the police to run a DNA test on the baby. But nobody is prepared for the results.

The newborn belongs to Deborah. She’s still alive…

Her Final Hour: Anything can happen behind closed doors.

Melissa Sanderson is the perfect wife and mother. She dotes on her daughter, and lives in her dream home in a quiet cul-de-sac in the suburbs.

But looks can be deceiving.

Something is amiss in that house – all the neighbours think so. Some say Melissa is having an affair. Others say she’s been drinking too much.

Then one night, sirens wake up the whole neighbourhood.

Melissa Sanderson is dead.

Her Pretty Bones: She’s just the girl he’s looking for

What if your child went missing… and everyone thought it was your fault?

Julia Dawson’s daughter is gone. She knows everyone thinks Christina is dead; that people say Christina ran away to escape her controlling mother. But Christina would never do that, and Julia will never give up on finding her.

So when the broken body of a young girl is found and Julia is called in to identify her, she knows it isn’t her daughter.

But the girl is just like Christina, with the same pale skin and brilliant red hair.

Will Julia ever find out what happened to her beloved daughter?

The Gina Harte series is perfect for fans of Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza and Clare Mackintosh.
