Overall Review:  

Vanishing Point by Lisa Harris is a prequel to the Nikki Boyd Files series.  The story revolves around the law enforcement team who is investigating a series of murders believed to be caused by a serial killer.  It is not light and easy reading, but it is not especially creepy either, because the main characters most often come upon the victims after they are killed.  The reader will have plenty of guessing and whodunit moments.  There is also a lot of hoping that the investigators figure it out soon so no one else will be injured.

Special Agent Jordan Lambert of the FBI and Investigator Garrett Addison are the focal point of the investigation and romantic aspects of the novel.  Each of them has different emotional challenges and as the story progresses they begin to learn to face their struggles.  One part of the book that makes it a bit atypical for the Christian romantic suspense genre is that the story takes place over a number of years. 

If you are new to Nikki Boyd and her story, it is recommended that this story be read first, but the books in the Nikki Boyd Files series were actually written first, so the back story is not essential.  Enjoy the journey and the uncertainty found in Vanishing Point.
