    Different from most detective thrillers

    This book had me thoroughly engrossed and pulled at my heartstrings. DI Adam Fawley narrates it. He has his personal tragedy to suffer. Daisy Mason is missing. Is it an abduction or a murder? It's a complicated, baffling case. The child's mother Sharon is not the "mumsie" type. She's vain, eaten up with jealousy and selfish. Her husband Barry has flaws and secrets too. Then there's Leo, their son who behaves strangely. The characters are fleshed out well. I liked the cliff-hangers at the end of each part. The format was unusual and worked well. The interviews with the police written like transcripts. The bloodthirsty media roused everyone to fever-pitch and social media had the parents hung drawn and quartered. Trial by Twitter. It was portrayed so authentically in that some people were savage and vicious with their comments. An amusing touch was that they tended to be appalling at spelling and grammar. Others were more analytical, supportive and compassionate, using their proper names. Some of the usernames were a hoot. There was a lot of humour despite the severity of the case. I did not see that shock ending coming. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Thank you to NetGalley and Penguin Books UK.

    I very much enjoyed this book. Just when I thought I had figured it out, it twisted and took a whole different path. ,
