Ok, I have to go all the way back to October for this one…I told you I was behind. You just didn’t know HOW behind, haha. I won’t lie, I had to read a few reviews on Goodreads to jog my memory! Yes, I’m one of those people who forgets the majority of books/movies…overall I remember if I liked it or not, so I at least have that going for me!
This was a captivating thriller where you thought you knew who did it, until you realized you didn’t. This book tackles rape, murder, missing person, police brutality and racial issues. Yeah, it goes all into that.
The mom is a 911 operator and receives a phone call from her daughter who has been drugged and she has no idea where she is. Her father is the chief of police and they go on a man hunt and find her. She ends up being drugged and raped, found at her friend’s home. Oh, by the way there’s a dead body in the closet in the room she’s found in. Her friend, who holds rallies against the police, which the daughter attends, is now accused of rape and murder. The daughter denies her friend could possibly do anything wrong, but the evidence is there…and oh yeah, her once best friend is MISSING!
There was a lot of action. The mother is determined to get to the bottom of what happened to her daughter and what is going on and it is a crazy, wild ride. The parents of the friend are banging down her door asking for answers of what the police all know and where their daughter is. She looks into her own people within the police department and does not hold back her own private investigation. I will say the beginning of filled with nonstop page turning action that starts to fade a little as the book goes on…now, it is still a captivating read with thrilling action that makes you go, oh my what is happening!!
4 stars. I could relate being a mother and doing anything to figure out what happened to my child. Highly recommend this for lovers of thrillers! Have you read this one? Did you enjoy it?
