Book Review: Little Girl Lost (Carol Wyer)

Screen Shot 2017-01-08 at 8.39.52 AM.pngDetective Robyn Carter, returning to the police force after a series of personal tragedies, dives into several investigations; a husband has gone missing and a man turns up murdered. Once she begins her investigations, she sees a link between these men. As she digs deeper and deeper, her investigation leads her to housewife Abigail and her family.   How is she connected to these victims and why is she receiving threatening messages; there are secrets and someone wants those secrets told.   When Abigail’s daughter is abducted, the race is on to find the perpetrator in time…

Well, Bookoutue has done it again! Little Girl Lost, the upcoming detective thriller by Carol Wyer, is absolutely nail biting.   This serial killer thriller is riveting, fast-paced and tense.   From the first page, I was hooked; I could not put this book down.

Be warned, there are moments where this novel is downright confusing. The novel is told through multiple point of views; we hear from Detective Robyn Carter as she works through the investigation, the housewife, Abigail, as she works through her threatening caller and questions her family and then a view from a girl who was sexually abused as a girl and is now seeking revenge.  I struggled the first half of the book reading all the narratives and struggling to see how they all fit together. Halfway through the book, once everything clicked, I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. Wyer blends these narratives effortlessly and with a slew of red herrings and some delicious twists, the plot unfolds.

I will not say anything more, keeping this review short and sweet, as to not spoil any of this delicious plot but, let me tell you, this novel would appeal to any crime fiction fan; I would start to read it on a day where you have no other commitments; you won’t want to put this one down! I gave it a 5/5 stars on Goodreads.  This one is on sale January 19, 2017.

Thanks to Bookouture, Carol Wyer and Netgalley, I voluntarily received a digital copy; it was my pleasure to write an honest review.

    Ooh, I really love it when police procedurals have other POVs in them, so this sounds right up my alley! Is Bookouture the publishers that always have insanely long epithets after the main title like “A serial killer mystery with a gripping twist” because I see so many of those on Amazon. 😂

    Did you read The Secret by Katerina Diamond? I haven’t read this yet but that one had also different timelines and POVs and it was confusing but I loved it so much!

    Great review. I have the book though I am yet to read it. Thanks for letting us know that it gets better so I will be prepared for the confusion(always happens to me with multiple POVs), Glad to see that you enjoyed the book though.
