Product Description

Product Description

When Abby Henshaw is brutally attacked by two strangers in the countryside, her first thought is for the safety of her baby daughter, Beth. But what follows is a mother’s worst nightmare: Beth is gone and Abby's world collapses around her. As DI Michael Gardner begins to investigate Abby and her family, he discovers lives built on secrets and betrayals. Under pressure from his bosses to find the missing child and to unearth the truth, Gardner finds himself struggling to stay emotionally removed from the case, and from Abby herself. After the authorities finally shelve their investigation, Abby receives a message telling her where she can find her daughter. But how can she convince those around her that the girl really is Beth when they are the very people she knows least? A gripping and haunting debut, Stolen is a richly imagined psychological thriller from an exciting new talent in crime writing.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Abby Henshaw is on her way to visit a friend after a doctor's appointment with her eight-month-old baby daughter, Beth. The journey she makes will change her life forever. Suffering a horrendous assault and abandoned at the roadside in a remote spot in the country, Abby faces not only the after effects of the brutal attack, but also comes to a terrifying realisation about Beth - she is gone, stolen. DI Michael Gardner investigates the case and as he looks into Abby's life and those closest to her, he starts to uncover huge secrets amongst them, and he also finds himself forming a bond with Abby and unable to let the case go even when any leads seem to have gone cold.

Rebecca Muddiman successfully portrays how Abby's life is utterly destroyed by Beth's disappearance, and how she is tormented by the secrets she kept and the decisions she made. She is reduced to scouring public places in the vain hope of ever seeing Beth again, and when there is new hope she depicts the struggle Abby has to convince those around her to believe her and not let this lead slip away.

This powerful debut is a compelling, page-turner of a crime novel from a talented new author. The story slowly builds in tension, I was a bit keen for it move slightly quicker at times in the middle, but when the revelations come towards the end, I felt they were powerful and shocking. The chapters are very short and keep the story ticking along at a good pace.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read 12 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sensitively written story about every parent's worse nightmare. By the end I felt that the plot was too convoluted, and the coincidences too convenient to be credible, that it lost some of its power, but nevertheless the book is a good read and will certainly justify seeing more of Rebecca Muddiman's work.

3.0 out of 5 stars A reasonably good thriller 30 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story started well and then felt a bit laboured. The leap to 5 years later helped the structure and overall storyline. I found that I had ambivalent feelings towards the main character as I would go between empathy and irritation at some of her decision making but at least she seemed like a real life character with strengths and flaws.

3.0 out of 5 stars I've read better 15 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book was okay, I guessed most of the outcome by a third of the way through except one final twist at the end. I read it in two days more so to find out if I was right. But I seem to be in a minority compared to the other reviews.
Room or before I go to sleep are far better books in my opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Plodding 3 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Disappointingly predictable and a bit of a chore to finish. The writing is not bad; this just feels very much a first-time effort, hampered by a lack of detail and pacing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nightmares of the worst kind 17 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rebecca Muddiman has created a world of credible characters finding themselves in intolerable circumstances. This is a fast-paced novel which grabs the readers for a helter-skelter ride of emotional responses. A few red herrings and finely-tuned revelations, make this a compelling read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the hype! 15 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not a bad book but found it somewhat predictable. Started well but lost its way and only came into its own around the 70% mark. Got it for free so can't complain. Predictable ending. Even my pal Ped guessed the ending and he's only half way through.
