The Search Party – Simon Lelic


This is my first read of Simon Lelic and I enjoyed the story.

Sadie has disappeared.  She is a teenager from a small town. Her friends are interviewed as the storyline progresses and it seems unclear what has happened.  I struggled, at the beginning, to follow the storyline as the narrative   skipped from each of the friends.

All those interviewed have a secret. As the story unfolded I became more engrossed and into the outcome

DI Fleet, a complex character with many issues to deal with was a revelations and the novel promised so much but i felt lacked an intensity although that could well have been my dislike of most of the ‘search party’.

Thanks to NetGalley, Penguin Books UK and Simon Lelic for my ARC in return for my honest review.  Recommended.
