While this is going on Louise also has to contend with a brother (Paul) who has gone totally off the rails with his drinking - thereby neglecting his five year old daughter and Louise’s niece, Emily. However, when Paul disappears with Emily and nobody knows where they are, or if they are safe, Louise’s stress levels skyrocket. She is torn between her professional and familial responsibilities and is in danger of losing objectivity.
This was a terrific story that could be awfully real, for both plot lines, but I don’t want to give anything away. While suspenseful at times, I did find the narrative a bit repetitive around Louise’s dilemma of job versus family. For an engaging story with realistic and mostly likeable characters, it could have been improved with less repetition and hand-wringing. Nevertheless I really enjoyed reading this.

With the depressing effects of Lockdown and pandemic perhaps this wasn’t the best book to read.
my assessment should be downgraded to three stars . Sorry , many books have passed these eyes since .
