This is the story about two crimes , many years apart that are linked . The story is told from the perspective of Nicolette Farrell , she was still living around the area when the first girl went missing and now another girl has gone missing . There is red herrings in here and for the longest time I was following the wrong herring ( so to speak) . The plot is good , very good! It takes us backwards to the truth ... It gradually becomes clear then what happened . I really enjoyed the mystery but also the sense of menace in the story , the woods out back , the sense of danger of Nic alone in the house , a possible killer on the hunt . There is a lot to like about this plot . The entire way through the story I kept wondering what Nic was not telling the reader , it felt like she was holding out on me and that her father held a lot of secrets .
I recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Gone Girl for the sense of urgency and mystery.
