It is ten years since Ella’s sister Miranda disappeared without trace, leaving her young baby behind. Chilling new evidence links Miranda to the horrifying Jason Thorne, now in prison for murdering several women. Is it possible that Miranda knew him?
At thirty, Miranda’s age when she vanished, Ella looks uncannily like the sister she idolized. What holds Ella together is her love for her sister’s child and her work as a self-defence expert helping victims.
Haunted by the possibility that Thorne took Miranda, and driven by her nephew’s longing to know about his mother, Ella will do whatever it takes to uncover the truth – no matter how dangerous…
My Goodreads rating: ★★★★☆
Thanks to Netgalley & the publisher for sending me a free e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
For a thriller, I didn’t find this particularly thrilling. I did really like the story and the writing, but I found the suspense wasn’t really there. There’s such a small cast of characters that there aren’t many possibilities as to who the bad guy is.
There are elements of this novel that are fantastic. Ella’s relationship with her family, and especially Luke, is well done. Her parents are really grieving the loss of their firstborn. There are a couple of twists in the plot that leave you guessing for a while, but I found too much was resolved before the killer’s reveal so it wasn’t much of a surprise to me. Maybe I’ve just read too many thrillers.
This is a great read for thriller fans, new or old.
