Review From User :
I'm always on a lookout for good (literary if possible) stand alone domestic mystery thrillers. Kardos has exceeded every possible expectation I might have had when I picked up Before He Finds Her. A mystery that's actually mysterious, thriller that actually thrills and as well written as any quality work of literature, this book was genuinely awesome and pretty much impossible to put down. Good thing it was a quick read. Basic plot is a young woman raised almost her entire life in rural isolation imposed by a witness protection program, due to her father murdering her mother 15 years ago and disappearing. A life led in fear is no life and she decides to finds her father herself...yes, before he finds her. What really sets this book apart from so many other similar works is the incredible quality of writing and character development. Alternating timelines and narratives, Kardos does a phenomenal job of showing just how complex, multifaceted and mutable human nature and, by extent, human relationships really are and how blind one can be to what's really going on inside another person's heart and mind. That's what good books should aspire to do, really, to help us understand others and the world we live in. Kardos succeeds with flying colors. So very impressive. I'm very glad to have discovered this author. Highly recommended.

Everyone in the quiet Jersey Shore town of Silver Bay knows the story: On a Sunday evening in September 1991, Ramsey Miller threw a blowout block party, then murdered his beautiful wife and three-year-old daughter. But everyone is wrong; the daughter got away.
Now she is nearly eighteen and tired of living in secrecy. Under the name Melanie Denison, she has spent the last fifteen years in small-town West Virginia as part of the Witness Protection Program. She has never been allowed to travel, go to a school dance, or even have internet at home. Precautions must be taken at every turn, because Ramsey Miller was never caught and might still be looking for his daughter.
Yet despite strict house rules, Melanie has entered into a relationship with a young teacher at the local high school and is now ten weeks pregnant. She doesn’t want her child to live in hiding as she has had to.
Defying her guardians and taking matters into her own hands, Melanie returns to Silver Bay in hopes of doing what the authorities have failed to do: Find her father before he finds her.
Weaving in Ramsey’s story in the three days leading up to the brutal crime, “Before He Finds Her” is a stirring novel about love and faith and fear – and how the most important things can become terribly distorted when we cling to them too fiercely.
