    Pretty Little Things by Jilliane HoffmanThis book is not for the faint of heart It deals with disposable children Children who have been abandon by society or have abandoned society Kids who have run away or have been snatched from all walks of life Internet predators are specifically addressed and this is the story of Special Agent Bobby Dees and his efforts to save these childrenThis was an excellent mystery It was still hard to read The predator was despicable and wholly frightening What was also frightening was the Internet naiveté that kids demonstrate even as the Internet matures Simply log on to any of the social networks and see the inappropriate postings that could lead to devastating conseuences I would like to see the book used in a middle school reading program led by the guidance department It’s intensity could be construed as a “scared straight” type of book but it might serve to enlighten kids to some of the dangers they face in an electronic environment Do you know that your kids DSi or xBox can communicate to other online users and that neither they or you know who they are REALLY communicating with? Parents should seek out and read this book It isn’t necessary to overeact but simply the act of reading this book could help to open some naïve eyes in both parent and child I highly recommend the book

    Wow It's 2am and I've read this book pretty much non stop over a 6 hour period could not put it downexcellent plot characters and I did not see the ending coming at allI was expecting this book to be gruesome and graphic in describing the killers methodologies but I read a lot of crime and this is not really a descriptively gory book in comparison to others It's not sweetness and light don't get me wrong it's a dark twisted sick serial killer that plays a pivotal role in this book That's never going to end well for someI'm exhausted from the roller coaster of reading but enjoyed it hugely 45 stars

    A gripping and horrifying story that grabbed my attention at the beginning but the ending was awful Unexpected yes but also highly unlikely and surrounded by a clumsy set of bizarre coincidences that made even less sense the I thought about them

    I really struggled with this book and almost packed it in a few times The last was at around 58% and by then I needed to persist as I'd invested too much time on itThere were way too many mistakes some very basic indeed such as curser being used for cursor and concealor for concealer Capital letters were missed at the start of sentences There was a passage that made no sense whatsoever too just like the in the BibleIt was written as a teenager in places and that got very tiresome indeedThere were a lot of explanations of technical terms of very basic IT that I felt weren't needed as nobody would be lost as long as they had a basic grasp of the internetHowever there were lots and lots of acronyms and abbreviations used and they weren't always explained just thrown into the textThe story itself was an interesting tale but the stuff already described made the process too laborious for me and I wouldn't download by this author

    This is another book that mysteriously wandered into my orbit and I am glad it did More than a police procedural or a standard mystery it is a book that points out the statistics of missing children how children of a certain age are generally presupposed to be runaways and the reuirements for an amber alert The main character is a FDLE agent who is renowed for his work with missing and exploited children Bobby Dees might be a good cop but was he a good parent? And can he solve the case of missing Lainy while not sleeping You see his own daughter disappeared from home almost a year laterAs bodies pile up the killer is teasing Dees and his wife with hints about his daughters location? Could she be a victim? The author shows how predators use the internet to get to kids It is a wake up call for parents of teens and preteens

    Jilliane Hoffman was introduced to me originally by a friend and I read her first novel Retribution 2005 which I adored However her next book didn't come out until a year later Last Witness 2006 and another two years go by before another book gets released Plea of Insanity 2008 and after that I forgot about her because it is so unpredictable with the timings of her books Therefore I couldn't wait to get my grubby little paws on her latest thrillerPretty Little Things tells the story of Elaine Emerson know as Lainey She is a normal girl except for the fact that she might as well be invisible in her own home Her mother is too busy to know or care what she does her little brother can do no wrong her step father is too busy at work and her elder sister no longer bothers coming home So when Lainey is left to her own devices online things go terribly wrong With their recent house move and the loss of all of her school friends Lainey is finding it hard enough as it is to fit in at her new school so when a handsome boy makes friends with her online she sees no reason why she shouldn't meet up with him For Lainey this is where it all goes wrong Where she is taken and who has taken her she can't say but she does know that she is scared and that she isn't aloneBobby Dees is a Special Agent and when he gets that all too familiar phone call one morning he knows the coming weeks will be hell Bobby is suffering with his own demons and his marriage is falling apart at the seams following the disappearance of his own daughter over a year ago Still he pushes his grief to one side and gets to work on his latest case involving the missing Lainey Bobby soon realises that Lainey was pretty much left to her own devices and it doesn't take long for him to figure out the last contact Lainey had was with somebody known only as El Capitan The uestion is can he get to her before she winds up being another statistic?Wow I was really thrilled with this new book and finished it within a day and a half It took me the usual two or three chapters to really absorb myself in the story but once there I couldn't resist going back chapter upon chapter until before I knew it I was finished The story is laid out really well with the story told from Bobby Dees Lainey as well as the disturbed life of the man who has taken young Lainey The chapters were written well enough for me to start fearing for my nieces growing up Bobby Dees is written very well and you end up liking him and Jilliane Hoffman doesn't go overboard with the sympathy vote for him which I liked I cannot come up with one thing I didn't like about this book and am only sad that I now don't know how long I will have to wait for the next one

    Pretty Little Things by Jilliane Hoffman is a 2014 Thomas Mercer publication I have always enjoyed novels by Jilliane Hoffman and this one was no exception A gritty and heart wrenching suspense thriller that left me in white knuckled suspense and a feeling of pain for victims of these crimes and their families but also a feeling of hopeWhen thirteen year old Lainey disappears it's not just a job for Bobby Dees and the Crimes Against Children Suad For Bobby each of these crimes is personal because he knows exactly what these families are going through He himself has a missing daughter and lives life in a hell on earth limbo not knowing if she is dead or alive The case is gruesome and harrowing as the author examines not only the way these girls get lured into traps by these predators but the effect it has on the families the investigative process and the reminder that with each closed case there are still countless missing and exploited children yet to find and rescue As a parent who raised two children just on the cusp of the cell phone IM explosion and dealt with some on these issues myself and having no idea how cleaver these kids can be when trying to keep something hidden from you I can't stress to parents enough how accurate this novel was As clever as kids are so are the predators so in fact These kids want be to grown up but they still need a watchful eye on them at all times They can be at home safe and sound but a predator is right there in their rooms with themvia computers and smart phones tempting them and luring them into a clever trap and you will never seen it coming Certain messaging applications leave no record making it impossible to determine what might have happened in a worst case scenario It literally sent chills down my spine reading about it thinking about what these kids suffer and if they are fortunate enough to survive how their lives will never ever be the same This book was obviously well researched and thought out the pacing and timing were spot on and for the suspense is taut I was very pleased with the ending and poignancy it stressed Well Done 5 stars

    This was a fantastic book Had me hooked in right from the start well written and kept me guessing Didn't pick the ending that's for sure and I loved every bit of it Just added Jilliane Hoffman to my mental list of books to look out for

    THIS IS A FAST PACED CRIME THRILLER That you won't be able to put it down It was very well written it was rich in facts but easy to read The story is told from the perspective of Detective BobbyDees his daughter had vanished over a year ago As well as the victim Lainey 13 year old girlthat goes missing after agreeing to meet a young boy she met on the internet Of course he was a predatorwho seeks out young girls to kidnap and torture I really enjoyed this book and recommend it It is exciting book with a good ending
