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.Read more ›
Room or before I go to sleep are far better books in my opinion.
Well written, altho I did find parts of it a bit wordy, which tended to slow the pace.
Overall, I recommend this book. I enjoyed reading it.
This a very good debut with strong charatcterisation. I particularly like the way the story is written from different perspectives - Abby, Gardiner the DI on the case, and other significant characters. The attack is harrowing to read, and the anguish that follows Beth's disappearance is clearly drawn from all perspectives. The book starts with the attack and disappearance of Beth within the first pages, then picks up 5 years later. This works really well, and makes you think what it must be like when someone disappears and you don't know what happened to them. In Beth's case, the fact she was taken as a baby means she doesn't know she was abducted, which adds another poignant element to the story.
It's obvious very early on in the story who took Beth (at least it was to me) but there are still plenty of twists and red herrings to keep you guessing. The story starts well, it does drag a bit in the middle, but then picks up pace towards the end. I did feel the ending was a bit rushed, and it would have been nice to have had a chapter showing life another 5 years from the conclusion, but this is just my personal opinion.
An enjoyable read and a good first novel. I'll definitely look our for more books for Rebecca Muddiman.
