Imagine you have a young child and one day the police come to your door to arrest your partner for child endangerment, at the same time a social worker and another police officer inform you that your daughter has to go with them and you can't accompany her because you may influence what she says.
Wouldn't you go out of your mind with worry about your child as well as wondering if you knew your partner as well as you thought and going over every little detail that you could think of?
Now let's say you wait and you don't hear anything so finally you decide you're going to call the police station because, seriously, your daughter must be worried not being with her mum for so long. The next thing you discover is the police have no record of your partner's arrest and certainly don't have your daughter. It was an elaborate ruse to kidnap your child and now you have to work out why - will there be a ransom, was your partner involved?
This book was a real page-turner and if you enjoy suspenseful fiction then you will absolutely love this. I did work out who was behind it before the book revealed which I found very frustrating, but that's something I'm known for with both movies and books!
This book gets a big thumbs up from me, although I am very glad my daughter is an adult now, the author's idea is truly terrifying to any parent and I'm not sure I would've wanted to read it had my own daughter been a pre-schooler. That's how good it was.
I have never come across Rachel Abbott before but I will certainly be looking out for some of her books in the future. I actually got the kindle version of this book for free as I have an Amazon Prime account. I love having a Prime membership because I can try different authors and even different genres of books for free before purchasing more books.
Rachel Abbott has several other books available in book form, in Kindle form as well as audiobooks, in fact, a couple of them are available for free if you decide to trial audible (I don't have this yet, but a number of people have been telling me to try it).
