Blink: A psychological thriller with a killer twist you'll never forget Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Three years ago Toni's five-year-old daughter, Evie, disappeared after leaving school. The police have never been able to find her. There were no witnesses, no CCTV, no trace.
But Toni believes her daughter is alive. And as she begins to silently piece together her memories, the full story of the past begins to reveal itself - and a devastating truth.
Toni's mind is trapped in a world of silence. Her only chance to save herself is to manage the impossible: she must find a way to make herself heard. She must find her daughter.
A compelling, gripping thriller with a breathtaking twist that will keep you awake until the early hours. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Behind Closed Doors and The Sister.

I have really enjoyed k.l Slater books. im sure this is just a once off disappointment as her other books were amazing..that being said I cant wait to get my hand on her next thriller.
Instead of leading us through the remainder of the plot with actions, she allowed the characters to narrate. Any action was incidental. Very Agatha Christie, but modern mystery has moved on. Writing rules are explicit. Authors don't spoon-feed their readers. Readers deserve to think to the very end.
Part of the problems arose from the format of skipping through time and narrators. Though intriguing, it started to fall apart as the major turning point finally occurred. Another issue was the revelation near the beginning of a most obvious culprit with a perfect motive. The other accomplices and rules were easily identified even with the extra wild card characters fed to readers.
It was the loss of richness at the end that did in the book for me. It was as if the author worked for months and then got a call from her publisher to get a move on. The end was slapped on and the beginning didn't get the polish it needed to make clues appropriately subtle. We have been given both too much and not enough.
I kept reading, hoping for a flash of brilliance. If you follow the odor, there is a spark. It wasn't enough to justify my time. And Alfred Hitchcock did it already.
I sincerely regret giving a negative review but I cannot recommend Blink.

How on earth does someone place a nest of wasps inside a bouquet of flowers, and the wasps only wake up and fly out when the flowers are rearranged?
Toni managed to see movement behind the window of the house next door, while she was inside her own house!
Toni is still picking up her husband’s prescription sedatives from the pharmacy, two years after he died. Apparently, the pharmacist must have been handing them out without a repeat prescription from the doctor, as the doctor would surely know the patient was dead!!
I was sick of hearing about the ‘small brown bottle’ of pills. Do pharmacies even dispense medication in brown bottles these days, they all seem to come in blister packs. Tori didn’t trust herself to take them as they knocked her out or made her woozy, so why was she constantly taking them at irresponsible times when she had to drive somewhere or should have been looking after her daughter?
I could go on and on with a list of stupid actions, but won’t. It’s a shame, the theme for the story was so good and I wanted to finish the book to see what happened. It did have a couple of unexpected good twists and quite a few red herrings thrown in along the way. I also felt a bit cheated that the book finished quite abruptly at 90% on Kindle to allow a preview of all the author’s other books. 3 stars is generous.
It's a good read - fairly addictive, in fact - though I wasn't surprised by the "twist" or who was involved. Not that it's badly done at all - I think I've just read too many Psychological Thrillers With Shocking Twists You'll Never Forget now, not to be wise to misdirection. That said, I certainly hadn't by any means worked out exactly what was going on. (Fortunately, we have that whole "let me explain to you exactly every awful thing I did and why" exposition scene near the end to clear it all up.)
There are a few things which don't ring true. Any pharmacist who continues to unquestioningly hand out, "like sweeties", what are presumably controlled drugs prescribed some time ago for a person now deceased, deserves to be struck off immediately. I'm pretty sure too that Toni would have been eligible for some form of army widow pension, and shouldn't have been in quite such financial dire straits. Some things from early on also don't make a lot of sense in light of later revelations.
Incidentally the cover of the book, as displayed on my Kindle and the Amazon page, calls it a "gripping pyschological [sic] thriller". Ouch!
