By some pure fluke, I started this slow burner of a psychological thriller on the day that this story is hinged upon, 17 July. The day that teenager Kayleigh and former teacher Chris disappear. Are their disappearances linked or is it just one of life's coincidences to which Chris' wife Bec, our leading lady is clinging to? The whole town is focussing on the disappearance of Kayleigh as you'd expect because she's a teenager but Bec is desperate to find her man despite him being branded as the guy who has kidnapped the young girl.
Bec is one of those characters that you're wary of. She's a victim of circumstance, she's being targeted and forced out of her own home into a caravan park where she's desperate to hide. But she's developed a crutch in the form of alcohol so how much can you trust her? How much is in her mind? I did feel sorry for her, she's being bullied and no one will help her find her husband. She's grasping at straws and pestering the police for updates when their energies are focussed on finding young Kayleigh.
I found the whole story tense, I really wanted to find out what happened to our two missing persons. I'm looking forward to seeing what Sarah has to offer next!
Rebecca Pendle has hit the lowest point in her life. Her husband, Chris has disappeared but on top of that he has been accused of being involved in the disappearance of teenager, Kayleigh Jackson who went missing on the same day he was last seen. Is there a connection? Surely it is coincidence only. There are a group of people who certainly seem to think so and the police have reason to believe that Chris maybe involved. Soon Rebecca finds herself as the target of a group of people who are fighting to get justice for Kayleigh. Is her husband Chris really as innocent as she believes. Is there anything that Rebecca is hiding?
Sarah Wray has created an engrossing mystery in her debut novel with a terrific hook that kept me engaged. It will definitely keep you turning the pages. The main focus of the novel is Rebecca’s search for her husband rather than on the search for the missing teenager. It is Rebecca’s story which is the principal plot drive. There were times when I really did feel sorry for her as she tried to come to terms with what was happening in her life and I really wanted things to get better or for her to at least find answers. Sarah Wray painted a vivid portrayal of the impact that her husband’s disappearance and the subsequent allegations against him has had on her life. It was interesting to see how easily people can turn against each other, which is certainly the case in this book
Sarah does like to keep you on your toes as she reveals new information about her character’s lives. As I was reading this book I felt as though I couldn’t trust anyone and that each character may be hiding a secret. One of the other aspects which I really liked about this book was the setting, the setting was perfect for this novel and Sarah uses it well in creating a foreboding and unsettling atmosphere.
Reported Missing is a captivating debut. Sarah Wray is an exciting novelist who I will be looking out for in the future. I would definitely recommend this if you’re a fan of psychological thrillers.
Sarah Wray expertly builds up tension from the very first page of this thrilling novel. The reader can't help but empathise with Rebecca, the wife of Chris who went missing on the same day as teenager Kayleigh. Having said that, Rebecca is such a realistic character that I found myself really frustrated with her at times - the same way her friend Jeannie would be. To build nuance like this is a real skill. I really loved that Wray depicted her characters as flawed humans - rather than saints or sinners.
Would absolutely recommend!
