Blurb; You only let her go for a second… Now she’s gone.
Erika Rice is in an elevator with her four-year-old daughter Alice when all the lights go out. It jerks to a stop on a deserted floor of apartments and the little girl runs out into the corridor.
But before Erika can follow her the doors slam shut again. Now her daughter is nowhere to be seen.
Erika was about to take Alice away for a fresh start, far from her troubled past, when the child vanished. How could a four-year-old disappear into thin air?
And with no one to help her, will Erika ever find her daughter?
My Review; Wow. Where I start to review this excellent book? Its grabbed me right in. I was well and truly hooked! Easily could have finished it in one sitting. It was bloody brilliant and has earned a well deserved place in my top 20 books of 2018.
This is a must buy and must read for me. I loved and enjoyed Alex’s previous book The Last Thing I Saw and both are brilliant, outstanding, enjoyable reads. I think this story really gripped me and got to me because a four year old girl goes missing and as a mother to a three year old girl myself I really put myself into Erika’s shoes.
God only knows what I would do if my little one went missing so I felt all the emotions and every part of this story. It must be one of my worst nightmares. While reading this I didn’t trust any characters at all, I was on high alert throughout reading this. Mother mode.
A thrilling, easy to read, fast paced story which I loved. One that will stick with me for a long time. I would highly recommend to you all. A well deserved five stars. I look forward to the next book by Alex.
