HOW CAN A CHILD GO MISSING WITHOUT A TRACE?
Last night, eight-year-old Daisy Mason disappeared from a family party. No one in the quiet suburban street saw anything – or at least that’s what they’re saying.
DI Adam Fawley is trying to keep an open mind. But he knows the nine times out of ten, it’s someone the victim knew.
That means someone is lying…
And that Daisy’s time is running out.
Having heard so many great things about this series, I’ve finally got round to reading the first book. Having now finished, I have already purchased the second and won’t be leaving it as long before reading it, that’s for sure!
DI Adam Fawley intrigued me right from the start. It’s obvious something has happened in his personal life of which I was dying to find out more. The author makes us wait though, not giving everything away to soon which adds to the suspense in the story.
The story line is a very up to date one. A missing child of which we get to see the frenzy of what people are saying on social media. It makes me sad at how people are so quick to judge and how things can very easily get out of control. It is very scary.
This was such a twisted read. I loved delving into someone else’s lives. Daisy’s family from the outset look like just an every day family, of which in a way they are, but then as the police unravel more about each member, oh boy I couldn’t turn those pages quick enough. My mind constantly changed in who I thought the guilty person was and all I can say is I didn’t see that ending coming!
Close To Home is a very clever crime thriller that had me totally hooked. It’s a great start to what looks set to be a brilliant crime series. A story that literally left me on the edge of my seat and can’t wait to read the next one.
