Two eighteen year old girls traveling alone to an exotic Thailand destination might mean trouble and it does…
I was immediately drawn into the story of these teens- Alex and Rosie, who traveled to Thailand for their “gap” year from college. The parents and one of the girls closest friends had been keeping up with Alex through phone calls and Facebook posts, until they suddenly stopped. I thought the chapters with the posts gave the story interest and Alex’s posts to her bestie added some information she withheld from her parents (we all know teens do that).
Who lets their teens go to Thailand without a responsible adult around? insert – FEAR
I really enjoyed the first half of the book, but the story did lose some steam in the second part. Once I figured out the villain, I was ready to wrap it up. I would love to read more from the author.
This is a police-procedural with an intriguing setting. Read it to see if you can solve it before the villain is outed.
Thanks to the publisher/NG for my review copy!
The new must-read standalone crime thriller from the author of Sunday Times bestseller, The Widow, and the Richard & Judy No. 1 bestseller, The Child – featuring unforgettable journalist, Kate Waters.
The police belonged to another world – the world they saw on the television or in the papers. Not theirs.
When two eighteen-year-old girls go missing on their gap year in Thailand, their families are thrust into the international spotlight: desperate, bereft and frantic with worry.
Journalist Kate Waters always does everything she can to be first to the story, first with the exclusive, first to discover the truth – and this time is no exception. But she can’t help but think of her own son, who she hasn’t seen in two years since he left home to go traveling. This time it’s personal.
And as the case of the missing girls unfolds, they will all find that even this far away, danger can lie closer to home than you might think . . .
