When two 18 year old girls go missing while travelling in Thailand, their families are thrust into the spotlight. Journalist Kate Waters does everything she can to get the first scoop on every story. This time is no different, but this time she has a personal connection as her son has been in Thailand for 2 years with little contact with his family. What were the girls up to in the days leading to their disappearance? And what danger waits for the families?
I really enjoyed this book. I took a while to read it because it’s coming up to exam time and unfortunately that means I don’t have the time to read. I thought the storyline was great and I found myself wanting to read it all the time and looking forward to reading it when I got home. That’s the sign of a good book for me. I liked the intertwining of the families of the girls and Kate, I thought it was a good addition. I really enjoyed the different character point of views and especially Alex’s story, as it allowed me to piece together their travels in Thailand piece by piece. However, for me the ending left it down. I found it way too predictable and I had guessed the “twist” long before it was revealed. It wasn’t the most original story but I still really enjoyed it overall. It was a good thriller and I’d definitely pick up other books by this author. This book is part of a series (it’s the 3rd book in it) but I’ve read none of the others and it didn’t make a difference.
