All the Missing Girls was another thriller on Kate White’s recent recommendation list.
All the Missing Girls was a slow start but it finished with a bang! Nicolette has barely visited her home town since the mysterious disappearance of her teenage best friend over a decade ago. When she returns home to pack up and sell her family home, another young girl goes missing in circumstances mirroring the events of 10 years earlier. Nicolette must piece together the events of the first disappearance so to avoid suspicion of the latest crime.
After a few obligatory chapters of ‘scene setting’ Miranda writes the remainder of the book in reverse chronological order with each chapter covering 1 day over a 2-week period. This is when the book really heats up as more and more details of both crimes are revealed.
The time reversal technique was clever but for me the ending fell a bit flat. Nevertheless, it was thoroughly enjoyed.
