This review is from: The Cry (Kindle Edition)
The Cry tells the story of baby Noah's 'disappearance' and how his mother and father, Joanna and Alistair, deal with it. The story begins on a plane from Scotland to Australia when Noah is fractious and Joanna is finding him difficult to deal with. Alistair, however, is the epitome of calm. These roles are carried on throughout the whole of the story, with Joanna appearing unhinged and Alistair being in complete control.
I can't say much more about the story without giving it all away so I won't, but I did think this was a really good read. It's very quick and easy to get through, especially on a Kindle when it seemed like I was constantly pressing the button to change the page. I enjoyed the characterisations, other important people being Alistair's ex-wife, Alexandra, and their teenage daughter, Chloe.
The story unfolds cleverly, and everything you think you know as a reader is turned on its head. I never really felt this was an intense psychological thriller, it's more of a look at mind games and influence over people. I'd read more by this author.
