The new case has all the vibes of a Broadchurch mystery and I loved it for that. An old case with questionable evidence; a new witness; remote settings, all made for a confident coherent story, full to the brim with atmosphere.
There are enough suspects to keep you guessing until the end and with a growing sense of unease building in the last half of the book, I read the last half in one sitting.
Convicted murderer Albert Croft, who has been incarcerated for 20 years, is scheduled for release on a technicality. Moreover, a vulnerable witness, Netty Blackburn, has come forward with an alibi which would prove Croft’s innocence and get his sentence overturned.
It should be easy. But Abby is already juggling the care of her son and her career when Netty Blackburn disappears. Now she is working countless extra hours that take her further away from Johnny.
To complicate the case more, Caileigh Watson also disappears. She was only two at the time of her mother’s grisly murder, but she witnessed the killing and if her memory ever returns—she can name the killer.
Everything about this mystery-thriller, including the missing pink slipper, is both mysterious and thrilling and the characters are well developed and convincing.
