NetGalley kindly sent this uncorrected proof of this book.
This is the first book of the series on Frieda Klein cases.
Frieda is a British psychotherapist who discovered during therapy sessions with a patient that he may be linked to the disappearance of a 5-year-old boy Matthew Faraday.
When she searches the chief inspector that is charge of this case, they both discover that Matthew Faraday and Joanna Vine, two cases separated by 22 years had vanished without trace in the middle of the day, near a sweet shop.
Some more coincidences are found during this intriguing investigation.
Even if it’s a psychological thriller, the narrative does not flow normally: shortly after the disappearance of Joanna, the author begins to describe at length the character of Frieda and his involvement with his fellow psychiatrists and their patients to resume later on the original plot of the story, when it occurs then the disappearance of Matthew.
Despite this, the book offers a good dose of suspense. Hopefully the second book in this series does not present the same ups and downs that have the current book.
