Nothing hurts more than living with the hope that one day you will reunite with a loved one who disappeared, simply because you believe they are somewhere out there in the world. It hurts even more when the flame of hope is blown out by the news of their demise. This is the situation in which the families of nine girls who had mysteriously disappeared in Sweden found themselves. The corpses of their loved ones were discovered in a forest in Sandviken by Alexander Nordin, who was visiting his parents' cabin. Some of the girls had disappeared more than two decades earlier, and even though there were suspects at the time, further investigations had proven futile and the cases were closed. Isa Lindstrom, the chief inspector in Sandviken, organizes her team of investigators and is determined to solve the mystery. With just a few leads which had been declared dead ends by her predecessors, and a few suspects linked to the case, will Linda and her team get to the bottom of it all? Find out in Venezia Miller’s The Find: A Gripping Nordic Noir Mystery.

Miller got me hooked on her story with her great style of writing. She uses the right vocabulary to unfold her enthralling plot. She switches between the present and the past through her narration, aligning her thoughts and ideas consistently. This gave the storyline a good flow. Her narration also introduced a suitably macabre tone. Miller depicts her scenes vividly and makes them picturesque. Miller knows how to make her audience experience the emotions of her characters. I felt their frustration, despair, terror, resentment, rage, joy, love, and much more. Her characters were well developed and she juxtaposes her characters' traits to highlight their complex nature. This tightened the storyline’s grip on reality. If you are looking for a mystery murder novel intertwined with a romantic tale, Venezia Miller’s The Find is just what you should be looking for.
