What is worse?
Losing a child?
Or losing someone else’s child?
The beginning of this book is a slow burn; akin to the suburban life it is set. Scattered with red herrings and unreliable alibis, it seems no one could have done it yet a little girl has gone missing. It turns satisfyingly from a who-dunnit to a why-did-they-did-it.
The characters are real and believable which makes the situation all the more damning and distressing. The climax was fulfilling with all the clues dropped like breadcrumbs coming to fruition.
A thoroughly good read.
Thank you so much the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a complimentary electronic copy in return for an honest review.
