Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!
This is the perfect quote for this story!
Right from the get go there is no build up to this family thriller and we are thrown head first in the main character Anna’s worst nightmare. Her daughter Josie is no where to be found and to makes matters even worse, her husband Nick is also missing!
A police investigation quickly gets underway with their suspicions that Nick is responsible for their little lady’s disappearance. Unable to believe that her husband could have taken Josie, Anna receives a text message from Nick that throws her world upside down and it appears that Nick is involved!
But when Nick is found drugged and unable to let anyone know where and what has happened to Josie the plot thickens as to who is responsible and why.
Is Anna really the victim? or has a mistake from her past come back to haunt her and is she the reason Josie was taken in the first place?
What follows is a fast pace thriller to keep you on your toes and has you guessing who can be trusted in this situation.
This is a well written thriller that cleverly makes you think you have figured out who the culprit is only to then push it into a entirely different direction.
A great read and I look forward to more of Jake’s work in the future.
I rate this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
