ABOUT THE BOOK
ONE MISSING BOY.
Marissa Irvine arrives at 14 Tudor Grove, expecting to pick up her young son Milo from his first playdate with a boy at his new school. But the woman who answers the door isn’t a mother she recognises. She isn’t the nanny. She doesn’t have Milo. And so begins every parent’s worst nightmare.
FOUR GUILTY WOMEN.
As news of the disappearance filters through the quiet Dublin suburb and an unexpected suspect is named, whispers start to spread about the women most closely connected to the shocking event. Because only one of them may have taken Milo – but they could all be blamed . . .
IN A COMMUNITY FULL OF SECRETS, WHO IS REALLY AT FAULT?
Marissa, her husband Peter and son Milo have recently moved into a very exclusive wealthy area in Dublin, where to have a nanny is a natural thing to do. Although they have the largest property in the area, Marissa wants the family to be welcomed into the community, especially at school for Milo, who is four years old. It has been suggested at school that Milo is a gifted child.
After a school social event for parents, Marissa receives a message from one of the mums she met that evening, asking if Milo would like a play date with her son Jacob. It is the nanny’s day off, so Marissa goes to pick him up at the given time, but it isn’t the woman that she knows that answers the door. The woman knows nothing about Milo. Milo is missing, but who would take him? Why did his teacher let him go with a stranger? The nightmare begins for Marissa and Peter to find their son.
It is a very emotional read from every point of view. I liked how the author involved other characters in the story that developed into prime players in finding the person responsible for taking Milo. The question became why more than who as time passed. I jumped to so many conclusions as I got to know the characters more and saw how they reacted to situations. There are some dodgy moments that you can easily miss. Even the smallest detail is important.
Oh my, the red herrings took great leaps in this story which sent me in every direction until there was only one left. It is a gripping story that just gave more and more. I loved every page that left me looking like a fish out of water. Brilliant story!
I wish to thank the publisher and Net Galley for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
