This is indeed a very dark thriller and will not appeal to everyone, not for the faint hearted as this touches on a subject that should never happen. I thought the story and the writing were excellent, Alex Marwood is indeed a very talented woman. This story consists of secrets and lies mainly about Coco a three-year old and her disappearance, in some ways it touches your heart but I think mainly you just feel pure anger that some people can be so cool and calculating. I would not be surprised if this is not optioned for TV as the drama is excellent, paced just right to involve many people’s lives. The story does flick between the disappearance and her fathers funeral but once you realise that it reads wonderful. I am giving this five stars as it’s different and still unexpected in places. Well worth a trip to your book shop or on-line at Amazon.
