A mystery that looks at the psychology of relationships, friendship and desire. Centred around a missing teenage mother and her devoted boyfriend, this is a compelling tale that deals with modern issues with flashes of gothic themes.
The story is told in three close timelines, which jump about throughout the book and is a bit confusing at the beginning. However, as the characters become more defined the timelines meld together and each is as exciting as the other. The relationship between the teenage parents is very well done and makes slightly uncomfortable reading at times.
This is a fast-paced story told from the perspective of the missing teenager, her distraught mother and a writer who wants to solve the mystery by research and solving the weird clues that surround her. Modern and easy to read, I'm sure this book will shoot to the top of the bestsellers list. This is a great read from a great author.
