Nobody's Child

An absolutely gripping mystery thriller with a jaw-dropping twist. This book will hook you from page one and keep you reading ‘just one more chapter’ late into the night.

On a damp October day, a body is found in an abandoned hospital, too burnt to be identified, but Detective Alex King knows that every victim is someone’s daughter or son.

Pushing aside her own troubles, Alex puts everything into finding the killer, but when someone else is found dead, she begins to suspect that the body in the hospital was just the first of many.

Just as Alex uncovers a heart-breaking link between the victims, she finds her own safety under threat. Is this a figure from her past hell-bent on revenge, or could the murderer be even nearer than she thinks?

Alex is running out of time. Can she catch the killer before they take another life, or will they get to her first?

A completely unputdownable detective thriller that will keep you up all night. Readers of Robert Bryndza, Karin Slaughter and Angela Marsons will love this.


My Review

I was looking forward to reading this book. Despite not having read the prior two novels, I was still ready to pick up this book. It can be read as a stand alone novel. This is not the issue I had with the book. My issue is that it seemed to move slowly, even though the chapters are only a few pages and therefore makes reading this book fast.

The other problem I had with the book is that I was not feeling the main female leads, Alex and Chloe. They didn't really show their strong personalities. Thus when you combine the fact that the story was moving at a slow pace and the two main leads were not very interesting, this made for some difficult reading. I did stick with this book to the half way point. This is because somewhere, I was hoping that these issues were improve for me. When it was apparent that this was not going to be the case, I did jump ahead to the last several chapters in this book. I didn't feel like I had missed anything great in thee last several chapters. I might give this author another try in the future but for now, this book did not do it for me.
