    I absolutely loved this book Abby Henshaw is driving with her baby going to visit a friend She is forced off the road by a car and is then assaulted and raped by its occupants leaving the baby in the car alone Abby is terrified she has never seen these men before and cannot understand why they targeted her To her horror after she struggles back to her car she finds her baby missing What is going on? To divulge would give away the story but all I will say is that I read this book in one sitting as I just could not put it down exciting and very suspenseful

    Wow wow wow wow wowThis book just hit the ground running right from the start Boy what a start This has to be one of the most shocking and uncomfortable starts to a book I have ever read What poor Abby endures is truly shocking Not just at the beginning but the whole way through the bookMy heart totally went out to Abby in this story To not only have to endure being attacked she then has to try and go on with her life after her baby girl goes missing You don’t have to be a mother to feel the pain and torture that Abby is feeling She never gives up on finding her daughter and even though she is constantly on DI Michael Gardners back the pair strike up an unlikely friendshipI loved Gardner He has never forgotten the case of the missing baby Beth It’s not just Abby who is a constant reminder to him but I think he has uietly beaten himself up over the years in not being able to solve the case It is understandable that to a certain point he has got slightly fed up of the constant accusations that Abby makes and is reluctant to follow up every one of themWhen Abby receives a message five years after her daughters disappearance telling her where to find her daughter the story gets extremely shocking and twistedStolen is just an outstanding start to a new crime series I was gripped from the moment I started it and read it in one day If you want to be taken on a whirlwind roller coaster of a read then look no further Highly recommended

    It was a book that I downloaded on my Kindle just because it was marked down And it lay there Forgotten Stored away in my Kindle for rainy days when I have no real books to readAbby Renshaw and her baby are on their way to visit a friend who lives in the country side when she is forced off the road out of her car and badly assaulted All through the horrendous experience Abby is only concerned about her baby who was left alone in the car while the men assaulted her When she finally manages to get to her car she finds Beth missing Her little baby had disappeared into thin airThe case falls to DI Michael Gardner to investigate As he digs deeper into the mystery he discovers dark secrets and betrayals some of which he himself has first hand experience of himself But no sign of BethYears pass he is no closer to finding Beth and then he finds himself handed another case of a missing child which brings back focus into this case which he could never solve Just then some clues surface but can Gardner go off on what might be a wild goose chase so many years after this incident? He also has his reputation to stake and that might get further tarnished if he is unable to solve the current case he was supposed to solve He is already known as the cop who couldn't solve his cases But Abby Renshaw is a hard woman to refuseDespite the fact that police got nowhere in their search for her daughter Abby hasn't given up She has been searching for her daughter constantly Her life revolves around Beth or rather trying to find Beth Her marriage has since broken down and all she really wants is to find her little girl She keeps seeing girls who looked like Beth much to Gardner's exasperation Could her instincts finally be right? Are they closer to finding Beth finally?A very well written psychological thriller that keeps you at the end of your seat Fast paced and an absolute page turner it had my engrossed The author keeps the suspense going until the very end The reveal at the end was even shocking and totally unexpected at least for me The characters are well thought out you relate to them feel their pain go through their emotions I was surprised to read that this was the author's debut book I know I would definitely be looking out for A book that I would definitely recommend if you like thrillers It was one of the best I've read in recent times 45

    let me start by saying how brilliant this book is it took me all of two days to read and I simply couldn't put it down I feel the author took a risk writing about the disappearance of a young child but she did it extremely well the characters the plot it all fit together beautifullyThis book kept me guessing the whole way through every time I thought I knew what was going to happen I ended up being wrong I chose to be a mother her mother I chose herThis was my favourite uote of the book I think it sums up the book completely in very few words Abby' s character is perfect in the way she represents a normal mother and the emotions that a lot of us would go through in her positionif you like thriller's I think you should give This book a go it was freebie which was a bonus and one of the best free books I have read

    ‘How had this become her life? It wasn’t even a life She felt like a ghost’Abby Henshaw is on her way to visit a friend after a doctor’s appointment with her eight month old baby daughter Beth The journey she makes will change her life forever Suffering a horrendous assault and abandoned at the roadside in a remote spot in the country Abby faces not only the after effects of the brutal attack but also comes to a terrifying realisation about Beth – she is gone stolen DI Michael Gardner investigates the case and as he looks into Abby’s life and those closest to her he starts to uncover huge secrets amongst them and he also finds himself forming a bond with Abby and unable to let the case go even when any leads seem to have gone coldRebecca Muddiman successfully portrays how Abby’s life is utterly destroyed by Beth’s disappearance and how she is tormented by the secrets she kept and the decisions she made She is reduced to scouring public places in the vain hope of ever seeing Beth again and when there is new hope she depicts the struggle Abby has to convince those around her to believe her and not let this lead slip awayThis powerful debut is a compelling page turner of a crime novel from a talented new author The story slowly builds in tension I was a bit keen for it move slightly uicker at times in the middle but when the revelations come towards the end I felt they were powerful and shocking The chapters are very short and keep the story ticking along at a good pace The plot is always central to this novel – the reader uestions what the outcome will be throughout – but the novel is also very much character driven as we get a strong insight into Abby’s drastically altered life and into DI Gardner’s rather empty life and his mindset as he continues to doggedly pursue this case for Abby despite it having been shelved and seemingly without any hopes of resolution whilst under pressure to solve his other cases I was really keen to discover the ending to this story and learn if what I had suspected was true; there are clues for us but the whole truth when it comes is shocking than I had thought I look forward to reading from this author

    I really enjoyed this book I actually couldn't put it down from the first page The story is based in one of my favourite parts of the UK Redcar and it's a refreshing change from the popular locations often usedI will not dwell too much on the plot as this has been covered by other reviewers except to say that Abby is married to Paul and they have an eight month old daughter Beth Abby is brutally attacked and raped whilst driving with Beth on a lonely country road to visit her best friend Jen and when Abby is eventually released dazed and terribly confused Beth has vanished from the carAbby's life uite literally falls apart and the police hunt for Beth goes cold The story then picks up five years after the terrible events that had occurred with Beth totally obsessed at finding Beth; spending days sitting on a beach walking around funfairs etc in the hope that she can spot her daughter It's a fast very good read and I enjoyed it immensely The only downside is that I spotted who the perpetrator was from very early on; I just didn't know how or why this had been done and from thereon in the book engulfed my life It's a terrific debut novel and I really can't wait to read the next book featuring DI Michael Gardner and his very interesting past which was only touched upon during this story
