Our Review

One morning Selena Cole takes her children to the playground and then disappears without a trace. She turns up 20 hours later with no memory of where she has been.

What happened in those missing hours? And how is it linked to a body that turned up?

The first anyone knows of Selena’s disappearance is when her 7 year old daughter, Heather, realises the playground is virtually silent and wonders where her mother and sister are. When she finds her sister, Tara, she tells her their mom has gone.

DC Leah Mackay is assigned to Selena’s case and is concerned about Selena, she fears she didn’t willingly leave a 3 year old and 7 year old on their own.

Leah learns that Selena’s husband, Ed, was killed in a terrorist attack on a conference in Brazil. They were there as part of their work as kidnap and ransom consultants.

Meanwhile, her brother is dealing with a murder. Finn is surprised to find he knew the dead man, Dominic Newell, a defense solicitor.

Each chapter alternates between Leah, Finn and case studies from Selena’s consultancy. I found myself skipping the case studies after a certain amount of time because I had become bored. In general, I found this book pretty hard going but I had heard there were some good twists thrown in.

I liked Leah as a character and found her chapters the most captivating but it wasn’t enough to save the book for me. Yes there were some good twists but it wasn’t enough to make the book enjoyable for me.
