A rather dark crime novel with some memorable characters and a burglar who likes to nap…..BUT someone will Snap!
Jack Bright is in charge, but he is only 14 years old. He does what he can to get by and take care of his two younger sisters (Joy and Merry). They hide alone inside their house and have their “cover story” down pat (insert snoopy neighbor). I had a soft spot for Jack and the girls. I wanted to give them all a huge hug.
Their mother, Eileen went missing 3 years prior and never returned. Jack is determined to find out who is responsible and he proves to be a wiley one. I think he stole the show.
I really enjoyed how the story was told with some of the different characters perspectives. As the mystery unfolds, the author throws in some shockers that had me on the edge of my seat. I also liked how the author gave the story some bright moments that made me smile in the midst of some tragic circumstances. 4 STARS
SNAP DECISIONS CAN BE FATAL . . .
On a stifling summer’s day, eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in their broken-down car, waiting for their mother to come back and rescue them. Jack’s in charge, she said. I won’t be long.
But she doesn’t come back. She never comes back. And life as the children know it is changed for ever.
Three years later, mum-to-be Catherine wakes to find a knife beside her bed, and a note that says: I could have killed you.
Meanwhile Jack is still in charge – of his sisters, of supporting them all, of making sure nobody knows they’re alone in the house, and – quite suddenly – of finding out the truth about what happened to his mother.
But the truth can be a dangerous thing . . .
‘Original, pacy and thoroughly entertaining . . . a cracking read.’ CLARE MACKINTOSH, bestselling author of I Let You Go and I See You
