When Steve and Emily are tasked with that same duty they discover that said daughter went missing about 5 years ago and mother is trying to find her in time for a visit to England by her divorced husband.
The mother has very little information about her daughter (she hadn't even noticed that she was missing straight away), so Emily and Steve interview the housekeeper for more information.
As each piece of information leads to another they build a picture of what has happened. Along the way they end up investigating an old high profile murder case and risk their own lives as they start to get close to the truth about both that and what happened to Felicity.
This is a fast paced story so you won't get bored reading it. There are one or two bits that can be anticipated, but that doesn't detract from it. And it doesn't mean that you can work out what comes next. I did enjoy the book and would definitely read Ian D Wright's work again.
I received an e-ARC of this novel in exchange for a fair and honest review.
The story tells the tale of how two up and coming young investigative journalists, Emily and Steve Moon find themselves investigating the disappearance of a missing girl, who in fact had been missing longer than first informed. The troubled girl who had grown up in a wealthy family becomes estranged from her family and runs away to London. She finds herself caught up with wild party goers, drug induced, anything goes scene all set in the 60's.
Although this is a crime thriller the reader discovers early on, who the killer was but the writer takes us on a journey with many twists and turns to several locations. It was an interesting read.
An easy to read style of writing with only a few errors but fast-paced and a good tone for this genre.
The characters suit the story and the atmosphere was tense at times.
Worth a look for fans of crime mysteries.
It’s dark and there’s an excellent pace in it that creates a sense of urgency to reach the end of the book and get all the answers. It’s been awhile since a book of this genre made me really excited. Every other chapter there’s a development that leads to more questions and a frantic search for the truth. All the characters are great, multi-dimensional, and with good dialogues. The story revolves around a young girl that’s been missing and the reporters that are following her story. What they come across is a lot darker, twisted and dangerous than anything they were expecting. Their story threatens very powerful members of the society that do everything they can to protect their secrets. A truly engaging story!
