REVIEW By LAWonder10:
Although, 'The Girl That Vanished' can be read as a stand alone, I highly recommend it be read as a series. The reader/listener will not get the impact of the main characters dilemma if he/she has not read book one.
After the last case's ordeal Emma was a "wreck"! She is having to testify during the trial, but she is having increased nightmares and cannot "come to terms" with the fact she could be so deceived. After taken to a psychiatric ward in a hospital, she was released with the stipulation she meet regularly with a psychiatric therapist.
After giving testimony at the trial, she was leaving on a much needed vacation.... That is, until the Sheriff from her hometown is at her door asking for help. After he presented his reasons for approaching her, she couldn't say no.
This is a fast-moving, impassioned tale of children going missing. It is a horror no parent should ever have to endure. Why is this happening in such a small town? Emma feels a personal connection.
There is a strong, unexpected ending followed with a short sentence "cliff-hanger".
The character feel so real. The events are described well. The Title and Cover Image are very well chosen.
The Narrator, Claire Duncan does an excellent job in narrating. She enunciates each word well, uses appropriate voice fluctuations to add emphasis. and her delivery of the individual voices are very discernible.
READER BEWARE: There a a few "F-Bombs" and other milder profanity... Less than 10 words.
I offer a rating of 5 Stars For the story and the delivery.
