The writing as always, is excellent, and the beginning of the novel is tight and claustrophobic. It becomes tense and exciting as the hunt is on. Fans of the policeman Tom Douglas will be pleased to see him playing a lead role in the story. There are twists and turns in this tightly constructed plot and towards the end I felt my hear t racing as I hoped for a good outcome for a trio of innocent children. A bloody good read!
This author's favourite police characters enter the story, handsome Tom Douglas and perky Becky Robinson each with their own romantic backstories. The normality of the police romances are the perfect foil for the slowly unveiled horror that is Olivia's life. This is a masterful book with tension drawn very tight yet its always believable. If you are looking for humour or idealised reality this is not for you. But if you want a book your cardiologist would warn you against, this is it. Heart stopping thrills all the way through.
This is the second time I have read this book because I liked it so much.
Congratulations, Rachel on keeping your readers spell-bound for a riviting climax and tying up all the threads in the very satisfying conclusion.

I loved the twists and turns to this story. Liv and Dan, so much in love until Dan's brother, Samir, shows up to put the cat amongst the pigeons. When Liv discover she is pregnant, she believes that Dan won't leave her, but to her dismay he does a vanishing trick after their daughter was born. Losing Dan and also her parents----who died in mysterious circumstances----Liv is in the depths of despair and turns to Robert----who has conveniently appeared on the scene----for comfort.
Is Robert the man he seems to be---tender, loving, and caring? Or is he a creepy stalker? No spoilers.
Tom sure had his job cut out in trying to solve this case.
This one is as good although not as bloody or gruesome as the few I’ve read. This one is quite mild a thriller compared with the few. I still like it, though.
It’s the way she laid out the chapters that make the chase for the culprit to be nailbitingly engrossing. Even the last chapter, which revealed the answer to the confusing case, seems to bring it all to a satisfactory close.
Another good read for a dull weekend afternoon.
I particularly like the Tom Douglas thrillers as not only are they all different, but the ongoing story of the characters makes you want to know what they do next too. Clever - got me hooked.
In short, if you like thrillers, with a twist, you will be hard pushed to find better than this.
Highly recommended as are all Rachel's books.
Robert Brookes vanishes with his three children one night, leaving his wife Olivia distraught. After the police come to the house and start to investigate, Robert and the children reappear, claiming he was only taking them out for a while. Two years later, it is Olivia who has vanished with the children, and she is not coming back. What is going on?
DCI Tom Douglas investigates along with his assistant Becky Robinson, who is smarting from a failed love affair.
Rachel Abbot cleverly weaves a pattern for the reader to follow, although nothing is as it seems. There is clearly a psychopath involved, and a lot of planning. Olivia has her best friend Sophie, her former lover Danush, who has suddenly gone and his brother Samir. All have a part to play in this thrller.
