What She Knew
Reviewed by- linda (2016/11/02, 08:46 PM)
In quick order, Gilly Macmillan presents a compelling scenario and shortly after the reader will start to feel like reading throughout the night. The story revolves around a missing child and is told from the perspective of the lead detective heading up the investigation, Jim and the distraught mother of the missing child, Rachael. Parent, or not, the angst of the situation hits you hard and fast; this is a taunt pshchological thriller that is well paced, well written and suspenseful. Both of these main characters are flawed making them all the easier to relate to. But, the added bonus for me was the writing style and delivery; this is not your standard mystery, you can feel the fear and trepidation in Rachael as the search continues and Jimís remorsefulness hangs like a waterlogged cloud just before the storm. Mysteries are generally not for book clubs; but this book is the exception to the rule- the mystery is above average fantastic, but the excellent character development throws it over the top. Itís great for both the mystery lover and book clubs. And to think, this is a debut novel. Bravo Gilly Macmillan!Back.
