    A chilling and twisted read

    Oh my life. I absolutely loved this book. What a great start to the series this is and I can already see that Robyn Carter is a character who has a lot of life in her and a good many stories to tell. Now I have to be honest. The opening chapter of this book made me wonder just what it was I was letting myself in for. It is not an easy subject to consider but it is necessary as it informs the rest of the story. It wasn’t gratuitous in any way but with a theme of child abuse I wondered just what the tone of the rest of the book would be. I needn’t have worried. Yes this is a difficult subject to read about, especially as it is told from the point of view of the child who is abused but it is short and although important, does not overtake the story. Robyn Carter is a complex character but I really did grow to like her. She has suffered immeasurable loss and it is impacting up on her in all the usual ways but it doesn’t dull the sharpness of her mind. She has a great relationship with her cousin and also her partner’s former wife and daughter and it is nice to see those personal relationships throughout as it humanises her and makes her more than her job. The story is told from three perspectives. Firstly we follow Robyn through her investigation. Then we watch Abigail as she struggles with the threats that she has been receiving. Abigail was a harder character to judge and I found myself torn between feeling sympathy for her position but also being suspicious of her. She is being persecuted, no doubt about that, and it is easy to understand the paranoia she succumbs to, especially given her lack of sleep. But she is a woman with a secret, one that remains well hidden throughout. Just who is she and how does she fit in with Robyn’s investigations? The story has a third perspective, the only one told in the first person, that of Alice the young girl who was abused at the start of the novel. While Robyn’s and Abigail’s stories are set in the present day, when we hear from Alice we are hearing about events which bring us to the position we are in today. Her story is harrowing, and she suffers every possible disadvantage throughout her formative years. It unfurls slowly and as it does, you are given cause to think about how different things could have been for her had the adults in her life once shown her any true care. The pacing throughout is just right, the chapters short and the flow between past and present worked extremely well. While there is a danger that this device could push you out of the novel, become jarring, it was the exact opposite here, driving me onward. It was one of those ‘just one more chapter before bed’ kind of reads. Not that it took me that long or indeed any bedtimes to read as it sucked me right in and I raced through it in a day, needing to know just what was happening. With the exception of Robyn, it is hard to trust anyone in this book. There are some real oddball supporting characters throughout the story and Carol Wyer sends the reader racing off down the wrong track on more than one occasion. And the ending was top notch. A belter. the tension was palpable, the sense of jeopardy growing as was the dread and twisted inevitability. But more than that, the final chapter left a real feeling of hope for, well, nearly all of the characters, but especially for Robyn. This is definitely a series I will be on the look out for going forward and Carol E Wyer has just bagged herself another big fan, jumping right onto my list of must buy authors. Can’t believe this was her first thriller.

    A really good, absorbing read.

    I really enjoyed the story line though did get a bit confused as to who was who at time. I look forward to reading more of Robyn Carter's books.

    Little Girl Lost

    A really good book in all respects. A real puzzler of a who done it. The characters were very real and the whole concept of what really happened to set the series of murders off is very plausible. Full of self doubt and with a secret past the key character twists herself round and round until she can't believe anything said to her. Great detective work. Very readable.
