The Missing – CL Taylor

You love your family. They make you feel safe. You trust them. Or do you…?

When fifteen-year-old Billy Wilkinson goes missing in the middle of the night, his mother, Claire Wilkinson, blames herself. She’s not the only one. There isn’t a single member of Billy’s family that doesn’t feel guilty. But the Wilkinson’s are so used to keeping secrets from one another that it isn’t until six months later, after an appeal for information goes horribly wrong, that the truth begins to surface.

Claire is sure of two things – that Billy is still alive and that her friends and family had nothing to do with his disappearance.

A mother’s instinct is never wrong. Or is it?

My Review: The 3rd book by CL Taylor is a tense psychological thriller following Claire and her family 6 months after her 15 year old son Billy has disappeared. This was an uncomfortable read and really examines how much we don’t know or understand what goes on in the mind and lives of our children in the digital age today. A gripping and fast paced thriller which kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end.
