Absolutely gripping read.
This book starts off so dramatically it keeps going right until the end.
A woman who walks out on her husband and young son. A daughter who works in the Police force goes missing and at first her Father has difficulty explaining to the officers that attend its more serious than they think........until the Father mentions the blood traces, then the officer takes note!
There is so much happening in this book, crashes, tragedy, wow, so much, its gripping, you just don't want to do anything else but read this book, hence, I had places I needed to go today to run errands and at any given time I had to wait, I had my Kindle out. I don't care what people thought of me, but I just wanted to finish this book and see where it was headed. WOW.
