LoveReading View on Pretty Little Things

In short chapters with the story told from the perspective of the main characters, this tense thriller builds at a frantic rate.  It illustrates the perils of internet chat rooms and how easily teenagers can get drawn into dangerous situations.  It is violent, raw stuff, not for the faint-hearted.

Pretty Little Things Synopsis

A terrifying new standalone psycholgical thriller from the bestselling writer of 'Retribution' Special Agent Bobby Dees knows what grief feels like. He understands the pain of losing a child. And he'll do whatever he can to prevent it from happening again. The phone call that comes on a Sunday morning will take him away from his insular world of grief and sleepless nights -- and into a far darker place. A young girl, Elaine Emerson, has gone missing and only Dees has a chance of finding her. It seems that Elaine was last seen waiting to meet her boyfriend - a mysterious figure she met secretly online who goes by the name of El Capitan, and whose reality is as cruel and chilling as the worst thing Dees can imagine!
