  • Captivating & Compelling

    A captivating story-line and a brilliant read! Daisy White has delighted me with this clever and gripping contemporary psychological thriller. I was not prepared for the exciting and intense roller-coaster read this book inflicted on me! Although I had been expecting this to be more of a psychological thriller than it was, I was not in the least disappointed in this superb action-packed story about a community and family embroiled in drug dealing and human trafficking. Single mum Holly Kendal is run off the road and regains consciousness to find a mysterious child in the backseat of her car along with with her son. Who left the forgotten child and why? The Forgotten Child was so full of drama and suspense that it had my heart racing and I was absorbed in the story from the start. Daisy White gave the reader a mixture of excellent characters, some of whom had appeal despite their flaws, though others were slightly less palatable and were meant to be scorned. Holly was strong, tough and edgy and I liked her enough to root for her throughout the story as the tangled and complicated connections in Holly's life were revealed and unravelled. This worked in retaining my interest and attention and I was never bored but instead, was lured ever deeper into this compulsive tale. The book was a commanding read and the author’s talent made this a wonderful story that I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated for the entertainment it was. The ending was something of a surprise to me as I did not anticipate the conclusion. Overall, I'd say that The Forgotten Child is a little gem and a book that I'm so pleased to have read! I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from HQ Digital via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Awesome book

    First up, I got this book and then the blurb changed, so I found a different story to the one I was expecting. I guess there have been a whole lot of negative reviews because of this BUT I thought it was an awesome book. It was way tougher, grittier and didn't shy away from issues like a single mom from a tough upbringing, trafficking and drugs. These were dealt with in a sensitive manner, and felt like a proper part of the whole storyline. I never saw the twist coming and I really loved the dynamic between Holly and Cath. A proper page turner.

  • Brilliant Gangland Thriller

    A brilliant gangland thriller! I agree with the other reviewers, this isn't really a typical psychological thriller, but it's a cracking good read, and up there with a Kimberley Chambers. The book starts slow, and I really thought it was going to be a typical psychological thriller, especially with the title suggesting it was all about the child. But BANG, the author goes off down a dark and intense road into organised crime and county lines gangs, and it just gets better and better. Single mum, Holly works as a 999 call handler, and is going through a messy divorce. But she has a crime boss dad, who is keen to hand the family business down to her. Holly wants an easy life, but finds herself drawn back into gangland, fighting the families she left behind, leading to a tense and mind blowing conclusion. I read this author's first book, Remember Me, and to my mind, this is better, and darker. I can see this as a series, because there is a lot unresolved between the families, but from the publisher's description, and other comments, its been put on the wrong shelf - like trying to shove a square peg in a round hole. Which is a shame, because it's one of the best reads I've bought in ages. Will certainly read more by this author.

  • it was ok but was not what I expected.

    Holly Kendal loses control on the rain-slicked tarmac, and her car spirals off the road. After the accident, when Holly regains consciousness, she desperately looked for her child. But Milo isn't the only child in the car. Next to him is another unharmed but unconscious little boy. She has absolutely no idea who the child is, not someone she saw before, but somehow he seemed to have an edge of familiarity. And with this child, all the devils she tried to left in the past come to her altogether. When I began to read this story expected to be a story about a mysterious child, we don't know where he came from. But this story mostly about Holly Kendal who tried to stay away from her father's illegal works, after she lost, firstly her mother and later her brother. She tried to leave everything illegal behind and married. But later she was divorced and trying to protect her child she found herself in everything she thought she left behind. Firstly, I enjoyed learning more about her and her life and the mysterious child and this is well written and a good story, but at some point, I give up to care about what will happen to her. So it was ok but was not what I expected. Thanks to #NetGalley and the HQ Digital providing me a copy of #TheForgottenChild in exchange for an unbiased review.
