Abby Henshaw is on her way to visit a friend after a doctor's appointment with her eight-month-old baby daughter, Beth. The journey she makes will change her life forever. Suffering a horrendous assault and abandoned at the roadside in a remote spot in the country, Abby faces not only the after effects of the brutal attack, but also comes to a terrifying realisation about Beth - she is gone, stolen. DI Michael Gardner investigates the case and as he looks into Abby's life and those closest to her, he starts to uncover huge secrets amongst them, and he also finds himself forming a bond with Abby and unable to let the case go even when any leads seem to have gone cold.

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.

Sensitively written story about every parent's worse nightmare. By the end I felt that the plot was too convoluted, and the coincidences too convenient to be credible, that it lost some of its power, but nevertheless the book is a good read and will certainly justify seeing more of Rebecca Muddiman's work.

This story started well and then felt a bit laboured. The leap to 5 years later helped the structure and overall storyline. I found that I had ambivalent feelings towards the main character as I would go between empathy and irritation at some of her decision making but at least she seemed like a real life character with strengths and flaws.

Rebecca Muddiman has created a world of credible characters finding themselves in intolerable circumstances. This is a fast-paced novel which grabs the readers for a helter-skelter ride of emotional responses. A few red herrings and finely-tuned revelations, make this a compelling read.

This book was okay, I guessed most of the outcome by a third of the way through except one final twist at the end. I read it in two days more so to find out if I was right. But I seem to be in a minority compared to the other reviews.
Room or before I go to sleep are far better books in my opinion.

This book was recommended to me by a member of #TBConFb and lurked amongst the forgotten books on my TBR pile for quite a while. I can't believe I neglected it for so long because it was fantastic! Abbey's daughter is snatched during a brutal attack, and from that moment, her life is torn apart. The characters were great, the plot twists were brilliant, and in my opinion, this is a completely believable account of what happens when a child goes missing. Five stars. #TBConFB

I got Stolen as a freebie and found it surprisingly good. Great storyline, twists, drama and ingrigue that, for the most part, held my interest.

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.

Abby's life changes forever the day her car is forced off the road. She is bundled into a van, brutally attacked and dumped at the side of the road. Her baby daughter Beth, who was in Abby's car, has disappeared without a trace.

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.
