This was my first Robotham read & wow I'm not sure why! I really enjoyed this book. While I did pick some things early on it was still a very thrilling ride where you didn't know what would happen next. As a mother myself my heart was in my throat for much of it! I will definitely hand sell this title! - Bookseller Angus and Robinson
