My name is Kate.
I volunteer at a local charity – young people who have run away from home call me
and I pass on messages to their loved ones, no questions asked.
I don’t get many phone calls, and those I do are usually short and vague, or pranks.
But this morning a girl named Sophie called.
I’m supposed to contact her parents to let them know their child is safe.
The problem is, Sophie isn’t safe.
And Sophie is my daughter.
Where The Missing Go is a truly intriguing read, a psychological thriller with a slightly different edge as Kate receives a call she believes is from her missing daughter. Feeling that Sophie is in trouble she seeks help – but those around her believe she is obsessing and seeing things that are not there..
The plot was taut with an ever increasing sense of tension – is Kate losing her mind or is Sophie really out there. The character dynamics are cleverly evasive to keep you guessing even though the suspect pool is small. The themes explored – the mother/daughter relationship, the impact on those left behind when a loved one disappears- are all handled realistically with a strong emotional core.
I read it fast. Addictive and beautifully written Where The Missing Go is an excellent example of how to do a psychological thriller really well.
