The Suspect – Fiona Barton ★★★★★

Blurb; 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 . . .

My Review; I have loved the previous two books Fiona has written so this was a must read for me. Yet again she hasn’t let me down. What a corker of a book. Bloody brilliant. Blew me away. Loved every second of this book, I lost myself into this story.

The Suspect is told through the girls holiday, the reporter and the detective. The book is packed with jaw dropping drama, drugs, lies, love, death and secrets. A real page turner you will not want to put down.

A case that just goes deeper and deeper. Characters with two sides to them. I absolutely loved it. I did feel sorry for the girls mothers and how the girls holiday, lives and freedom turned horribly wrong. A fast paced investigation into two missing girls. The ending will have you shocked too. It’s amazing what parents will do for their children.

A well deserved five stars from me. Highly recommend. A must buy. A must read. This story will not disappoint you at all, but will probably make you put your life on hold till you’ve finished it. Very impressed. Already looking forward to the next book!
