Woah. I need a moment to process what just happened. Everything I knew that was happening just changed in a split second!
Let me set this book up for you…read it. Ok, ok, ok…but just a little because this book is a page turning, nail biting thriller that will leave you speechless. It is a story about a young teenage girl who goes missing on a trip to London. It is told from multiple perspectives; a witness who saw her traveling to London on the train, the father, the friend she was traveling with, and a private investigator that the witness hired. The case ends up going cold and unsolved for over a year until…well, just know that the case gets solved and you find out whodunit…and if you can guess who did you must be a psychopathic serial killer.
I read this as a buddy read with my friend and we finished this book within days. I took off running and then she surpassed me and was cheering me on to finish. You should see the text I sent her when I finished reading chapter 46. I would show you, but, then I’d have to kill you. Honestly we didn’t know much about this book except that I have heard rave reviews about it and it was highly rated.
We almost didn’t read it because she kept seeing reviews where people drone on about the witness describing flower arrangements…ok…so to those reviews I say, yeah, not quite what it seems. I will say that Driscoll does an amazing job at stringing you along and giving you just enough details to keep you hooked and wanting more.
This earns a solid 5 star rating from me. It was just…amazing. I have since added her other 2 thrillers (one out and one coming out soon) to my want to read list because that’s how amazing this read was. I am telling you, my mind was absolutely blown! And for what it’s worth, my friend who can usually predict everything in a thriller, did not see the ending coming. Read it. Tell all your friends. Then come back and TALK TO ME ABOUT THIS BOOK! OH EM GEE!

BONUS: I want to share a quote from this book that speaks VOLUMES to me. Also, after reading this book, good luck to my kids to ever getting them to allow me to go anywhere by themselves! 😉
Because once you become a parent, you learn that love can involve more fear than you had ever imagined, and you never quite look on the world in the same way again.
Doesn’t that just hit right home for my fellow parents out there??? Anyway…pick up the book, trust me, it’s a GREAT one!
