Published February 2nd 2017 

A nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women - a decade apart - told in reverse. A brilliant debut from an amazing new voice in thriller writing.

It's been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared without trace. Then a letter from her father arrives - 'I need to talk to you. That girl. I saw that girl.' Has her father's dementia worsened, or has he really seen Corinne? Returning home, Nicolette must finally face what happened on that terrible night all those years ago.

Then, another young woman goes missing, almost to the day of the anniversary of when Corinne vanished. And like ten years ago, the whole town is a suspect.

Told backwards - Day 15 to Day 1 - Nicolette works to unravel the truth, revealing shocking secrets about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne.

Like nothing you've ever read before, All the Missing Girls is a brilliantly plotted debut thriller that will leave you breathless.

My thoughts…

This is a story about the disappearances of two young women, a decade apart   Nicolette (Nic) left home ten years ago after her best friend Corinne went missing, she has never been found and her case is still open.  Nic receives a call from her brother Daniel stating that their father, who suffers from Alzheimer's, is not doing well and some decisions must be made about his house and aftercare.  Shortly after she returns home another girl, Annaleise, goes missing.  Annaleise just happens to be Nic's neighbor and was recently dating Nic's exboyfriend, Tyler. 

I was impressed with the way the story was told in reverse, starting in the present then moving backwards in time, unfortunately I ended up getting confused for a bit.  Eventually I was able to catch up and understand how it all played out. 

All the Missing Girls is great read but you need to be prepared for the story told in reverse.

Happy Reading ~ Jovi
