    Enthralling thriller

    This was a really engrossing thriller, that I could not put down until I got to the bitter end. There was one red herring after another, and so many twists and turns. Everyone had secrets, everyone lied. I had so many characters fingered for the abduction of the little girl, Laurel – suspected, then discarded as the next suspect crashed onto the scene. I even – at one stage – thought the narrator (the nanny, Anna) had done it while in a fugue state, a split personality or something. After all, that seemed as likely as anything else. There were a number of pathologically obsessive individuals in the story – obsessed by love for a man, a woman, a child, or themselves – that lead them to (in my opinion) completely irrational actions. However, that does not necessarily make them guilty of the crime. When a child goes missing, it is impossible for anyone in Britain to not think of Madeleine McCann, and the media storm that still surrounds her disappearance. And, indeed, the book makes several references to that case. The book is every bit as much about the way in which the general public reacts to news about missing children, as it is about the fate of Laurel. How we judge, based on what we read or hear in the media, on our own prejudices, on our own beliefs of what constitutes good parenting: “And, of course, people will be judging Fran and Dominic (and you, a spiteful voice whispers in the back of my mind) – look at how we all jumped on Kate and Gerry McCann” and “People like to have someone to blame, someone to pin things on. It makes life feel safer for them…like, if they have someone to blame, then it can’t happen to them.” I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
