Thank you to NetGalley, HQ General Fiction (Adult), Mystery and Thrillers and Lisa Hall for my ARC in return for my honest review.
This is not the first Lisa Hall novel I have read and I will be seeking out more. I love her style of writing and always seemed to be glued to the page when reading her books.
A young girl, Laurel, goes missing at a firework display despite being with her mother, Fran, and nanny, Anna. Frantic searches begin when the police are called and distraught parents cannot believe this has happened, with a nanny who clearly has something to hide.
I have read several ‘missing children’ novels over the last twelve months and was slightly concerned that this would follow similar storylines. I was wrong. This is clever and the hint of evil makes it addictive.
Excellent, highly recommended.
