Anthony disappearing is nothing more than a red herring--also in the blurb. He does not disappear.
The killer is, of course, eventually revealed but no true motive is ever given for the murder of the little girl beyond the killer being a psychopath, and mentally ill. I think even a psychopath has a motive--even if it only makes sense to the psychopath.
There is a kidnapping much later on in the book, which is never adequately explained. Why the kidnapper thought that would lead to anything other than what it led to was never really clear, in my opinion.
I don’t usually read book involving violence against children and thankfully the descriptive details of such are kept to a minimum, which I appreciate. I’m more interested in the investigations and suspect actions.
It was hard to put this book down. Very well written and so many times I thought I knew who’d done it and was wrong every time.
Those are the best books. The ones that keep you guessing. Definitely 5 stars!
Many thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for this ARC!

Keeping her own secrets she's only told her partner Detective Bob Arnett about they begin working on the traumatic case only to discover a wall of silence and lies stopping them from making headway. When another suspicious death is linked to the school the need for answers becomes desperate but where will they discover the truth when all those involved are determined to reveal nothing?
This is a brilliant, page turning thriller until the big reveal when for me it became a huge disappointment. Jo Fournier's part of the story is excellent throughout and her relationships with her team and family were compulsive reading as was the main theme until suddenly it wasn't. I won't give any spoilers as I know many people will love this book but I felt cheated by what I felt was the author taking the easy way out of the complex and compelling case she had envisioned. I will still continue to read this series because for the most part the author gets it spot on and I want to see what happens with Jo next.
I was able to read an advanced copy of this book thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the opinions expressed are my own. I would give this 3.5 stars rounded up to 4.
First off the blurb is completely wrong.. “ As time slips away and Nicole hasn’t been found, Gia becomes utterly terrified” - you actually find out what happened to Nicole on page 7 and Gia is far from terrified. In fact she’s almost uninterested.
Second of all, there are so many parts of the book that don’t make any sense. I don’t know if it’s been poorly translated but I had to keep rereading sentences to work them out (for example - “One of the teachers fell off the pyramid. Straight back through this courtyard, then through the building”.
Please don’t believe the other reviews, I gave up after chapter 10!
