Twelve years ago Finn’s girlfriend disappeared.
He told the police the truth about that night.
Just not quite the whole truth.
Now Finn has moved on.
But his past won’t stay buried…
The book opens 12 years ago the night Layla goes missing. It moves between then and now and we come to know what happened as Finn tells his story. And now he’s with Ellen and they’re going to get married but then the dolls appear and the emails arrive and there’s more to what happened twelve years ago than even Finn realised and it’s bringing the past right back.
Using different narrators we are led through this twisting, turning and, ultimately, rather sad tale. Even though you may not be to engaged with all the characters and there are some frustrating elements when common sense should kick in, but that would make for a different type of story, there’s enough here to keep the reader going because even if you think you’ve worked it out, and maybe you’ve got it right, you still have just enough doubt to want to know you are right. You still want the why and how.
It’s a good read, well-written and there are plenty of readers out there who will love it.
