It is ten years since Ella’s sister Miranda disappeared without a trace, leaving her young baby behind. Chilling new evidence links Miranda to the horrifying Jason Thorne, now in prison for murdering several women. Is it possible that Miranda knew him?      At thirty, Miranda’s age when she vanished, Ella looks uncannily like the sister she idolized. What holds Ella together is her love for her sister’s child and her work as a self-defence expert helping victims.  Haunted by the possibility that Thorne took Miranda, and driven by her nephew’s longing to know about his mother, Ella will do whatever it takes to uncover the truth – no matter how dangerous…


                                                                My Thoughts 


I do like a good thriller, and this sadly is only ok. The premise was great but the execution was a little weak. It gets completely off topic a few times.

I think perhaps Kendall had too many ideas and used them all – instead of pairing it back and making the plot tighter and more gripping.
