THE NIGHT OF THE DISAPPEARANCE
She used to tell me everything.
They have a picture. It'll help.
But it doesn't show the way her hair shines so brightly it looks like sheets of gold.
She has a tiny mole, just beneath her left eyebrow.
She smells very faintly of lemons.
She bites her nails.
She never cries.
She loves autumn, I wanted to tell them. She collects leaves, like a child does. She is just a child.
FIND HER.
ONE YEAR LATER
Naomi is still missing. Jenny is a mother on the brink of obsession. The Malcolm family is in pieces.
Is finding the truth about Naomi the only way to put them back together?
Or is the truth the thing that will finally tear them apart?

I'm a big fan of thrillers at the moment, me and my dad keep trawling charity shops and picking up new ones and then swapping them with each other, he's a much more dedicated reader than me though, he's going through a book a day!
I'm just over 100 pages into this book and so far it's your standard thriller, girl has gone missing and her family has been torn apart trying to find her but all is not as it seems with this girls life.
The writing style is good, it flows and isn't difficult to get into.
This is a first novel from Jane Shemilt, which doesn't come across at all, you'd think she was a much more seasoned writer than she is.
I will let you know in my wrap-up how I felt about it as a whole though because it's always hard to tell at this point in a thriller because you're only beginning to uncover the secrets the book holds.
