Another excellent deep dive into the mind of a female sociopath. This time attorney Jane is searching for her missing sixteen-year-old niece, Kayla. By all accounts, Kayla is a Problem Child, who acts just like Jane…
I cannot believe how much I enjoy this series. Jane reminds me so much of Hannibal Lector. Chillingly fascinating! However, because Jane was made—not born—a sociopath, it is hard not to admire her survival skills. Plus she gets to do what she wants without guilt or shame.
If you like Dexter or Silence of the Lambs, I am sure you will love Problem Child. Though you can read these books in any order, they are best when my five-star rated Jane Doe is read first.
Problem Child has my highest recommendation and is a favorite for sure! 5 stars!
Thanks to Lake Union Publishing, Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

She’s cold, calculating, and can deceive with a smile. Jane Doe is back in the Amazon Charts bestselling series—and this time she’s met her match.
After a brutal childhood, Jane Doe has been permanently wired to look after herself and only herself. Now, looking next to normal, Jane has a lover and a job. But she hasn’t lost her edge. It sharpens when she hears from her estranged family.
Jane’s deeply troubled sixteen-year-old niece, Kayla, has vanished, and no one seems to care. Neither does Jane. Until she sees a picture of Kayla and recognizes herself in the young girl’s eyes. It’s the empty stare of a sociopath.
Jane knows what vengeful and desperate things Kayla is capable of. Only Jane can help her—by being drawn into Kayla’s dark world. And no one’s more aware than Jane just how dangerous that can be.
