Blurb

I’ve known him all my life. I know he has taken my daughter.

His mother says she can help me.

But she’s the last person I can trust…

Samuel lived next door when we were children.

We were inseparable.

But he didn’t like sharing me with my adored little brother.

And one terrible night, he got rid of my brother forever…

Now, years later, he’s free. And my daughter is missing.

I turn on my baby girl’s unicorn nightlight and bury my face in her pillow, my heart breaking.

I know Samuel has her – he blames me for ruining his life, and even after all this time, he still doesn’t like to share.

As darkness falls, there’s a knock at my door and I open it to see Samuel’s mother.

She says she can help me.

I know I can’t trust her, but I don’t have a choice.

With each step I take, my fear grows stronger.

Can she help me find my daughter?

Or does she know something about what really happened all those years ago?

Something that could stop me from saving my baby girl…

My Review

What was it all about

Missing by K.L. Slater was a solid psychological thriller where the suspense was secreted in the words, giving this missing child plot arc an added layer of mystery.

Nearly three decades ago, Samuel was convicted for the murder of child Jimmy, brother of the main character, Josie,  who was found suffocated in a refrigeration unit.

Now he was released for good behavior.

When Josie’s daughter Ivy went missing, she was sure Samuel was the perp. 

How it made me feel

The prose was laid with many bread crumbs where I had a fun time choosing which one to pick. The one thing I was sure of in the entire story became a fact in it. So I liked my detective work. 

There were a few other twists, which was quite unexpected, some were inherent to the plot and others, to the characterization.

The Good

It was a wholesome story which followed all the core points that a thriller ought to have. 

The characters were well-developed and had equal pages in showing me how their life panned out. 

The Bad

I didn’t go WOWZA over it. I wanted more suspense that would make my pulse skitter. 

The prose was not enthralling enough to keep me stuck to it. So I read it over two sittings. 

I wanted the final twist of identity and motive of perp to be more connected to the main plot line. I could easily know who were not the perps.

But that was just my thought. It might not be yours. 

The Conclusion

A solid psychological thriller. 

I loved it
4/5
