|New from||Used from|
In this thrilling stand-alone novel from the internationally best-selling author of the Frieda Klein series, a woman’s frantic search for her missing daughter unveils a nefarious web of secrets and lies.
Nina Landry awakens on her 40th birthday, anticipating a day filled with excitement. She, her new boyfriend, and her two children are taking a trip - leaving their home on Sandling Island, off the coast of England, for a dream vacation. As soon as her 15-year-old daughter, Charlie, returns from a sleepover, they can get ready to leave.
But Charlie doesn’t come home at the expected time. Nina can’t believe of all days, Charlie has chosen this day to be late. As minutes and then hours tick by, Nina’s annoyance soon changes to concern, and then to a chilling certainty that something terrible has happened.
The police insist there’s no reason to worry - yet. Teenagers are unreliable, impulsive. Nina always thought she and Charlie had a solid, trusting relationship, but seeking out Charlie’s friends for clues to her whereabouts makes her reconsider. How well does Nina know her daughter, really? How well can a parent ever know a child? And will everything Nina doesn’t know - about Charlie, her neighbors, even the friends and family closest to them - prove fatal...?
Losing You once again proves that Nicci French is at the height of their storytelling powers in a clever, mind-bending thriller that has listeners guessing at every twist and turn.

There is one exciting plot development mid-story and then the book returns to being dull. I also found the ending was both rather unbelievable and dragged on too long. I didn't think the characters were developed in a consistent manner and I didn't always find that their reactions to things were very believable at all. I can't go into detail about most of these but, for instance, I didn't understand why the main character would feel it was perfectly safe to send her son off to stay with various men who could have snatched her daughter but apparently found it easy to suspect her ex husband of sexually abusing their daughter though nowhere in the story does it say he had ever done anything while they were married or after to indicate sexual abuse other than the fact that he dotes on her and some emails saying their daughter is beautiful and he is proud of her which for some reason we are supposed to find creepy.
What made the whole story even worse was that the ending was both unsatisfying and unbelievable. There is not really any explanation for why the villain did what they did other than a very superficial one . We don't learn much at all about the villain and why they were so messed up or what they were thinking and there were not really many clues in the book that made us go "oh of course, it makes sense that it is so and so!" The villain could have easily been anyone French chose because the story does not have a strong plot. The motivations of why the kidnapper acts in the manner they do was unbelievable as well.
