Deborah Jenkins pulls her coat around her for the short walk home in the pouring rain. But she never makes it home that night. And she is never seen again…

Four years later, an abandoned baby girl is found wrapped in dirty rags on a doorstep. An anonymous phone call urges the police to run a DNA test on the baby. But nobody is prepared for the results.

The newborn belongs to Deborah. She’s still alive...

THE GRIPPING THRILLER EVERYONE’S TALKING ABOUT – if you like Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza or Clare Mackintosh, you will absolutely love this. A completely unputdownable page-turner with an ending that will blow your mind.

D.I. Gina Harte works hard to bring justice to those who have been abused. She has worked hard to get where she is and takes her job seriously. She has never told anyone about her ill-fated marriage or why she might actually be happier without her spouse than she was with him. Her daughter doesn’t understand and often gives her grief for not showing any grief. In this first book of the series, mostly police procedural, a woman has gone missing for four years, sudden information indicates she may still be alive and in the area and the hunt is on to find her. Gina’s potential love interest, her family, her colleagues and other issues in her life are mentioned. This was well written if a bit abrupt toward the end. I would have liked to hear more about why the abductor did what he did, how he managed to get away with it and wanted to know how the family managed later in time – perhaps an epilogue? I am interested in reading the next book in the series and hope that Gina will open up to her daughter so their relationship can perhaps improve. I am not sure how believable I found the story but did find it entertaining. Thank you to NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars
