Synopsis: Someone is watching her. She just doesn’t know it yet.
The unputdownable new book from the bestselling author of Her Name Was Rose.
Everyone has a secret. But some are worse than you could ever imagine.
Nell Sweeney has led an ordinary life. Every day she walks to and from the hospital where she works as a nurse, believing that no harm can befall her.
Until one day she is taken.
Because someone out there has a secret. Someone out there has been watching Nell – and they’ve been watching others like her too.
Nell is the unlucky one – she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. And if she isn’t found soon, someone will make sure that she isn’t the last woman to be taken…
Review: I’ve had a good time with the author’s other novels, so I was delighted to get into this one.
Nell Sweeney has disappeared. Her parents discover her missing a few days later, when her roommate tells them she hasn’t returned. That’s when the problems start. Her mother is determined to find her, but unfortunately the police have no leads. We also follow his point of view. We don’t know who he is, but we do know that he’s behind a movement to show women that men are in charge. By doing what? By following women down the street at night, to scare them, to make them feel like they’re going to be attacked. Nell is one of the victims. What if the game has gone too far?
I had a good time with this novel. I was very intrigued by this “him” and wondered who he really was. I have to say I was very surprised when I learned his identity. Nell’s mother is very present and I was very touched by this woman who only wants one thing: to find her daughter. But in this tense moment, she’s also going to question her whole life.
A good thriller.
