You love your family. They make you feel safe. You trust them. Or do you…?
When fifteen-year-old Billy Wilkinson goes missing in the middle of the night, his mother, Claire Wilkinson, blames herself. She’s not the only one. There isn’t a single member of Billy’s family that doesn’t feel guilty. But the Wilkinson’s are so used to keeping secrets from one another that it isn’t until six months later, after an appeal for information goes horribly wrong, that the truth begins to surface.
Claire is sure of two things – that Billy is still alive and that her friends and family had nothing to do with his disappearance.
A mother’s instinct is never wrong. Or is it
I have read The Accident by the same author and really enjoyed this book I was extremely pleased to find The Missing waiting in my mail from the publisher to review a few weeks back.
From page one this book just grabbed hold of my attention and I found myself wanting to read it as fast as I could. It dealt with family relationships through a very difficult time after Claire s son Billy goes missing.
Taylor takes us on a very chilling journey to find out what really happened to Billy which at times was extremely brutal. There was twists and turns peppered right the way through. I loved the snap-chat conversations between 2 unknown users which was so dammed unsettling
