In The Dark by Claire Allen

Thanks so much to Avon Books for the advance copy of this amazing book, which is out now.

About the Book:

I don’t know what happened to my daughter. Only that she’s missing – and I was the last person to see her…

My name is Nora Logue. You’ve probably heard of me – most people have.

I am the mother of Daisy Logue. Seven years ago, I took her for a walk in the woods. Only I came out.

I have no memory of what happened that day.

I have tried to rebuild my life. Met a man, had another child – Luca. But I can’t let go of Daisy, or give up hope of seeing her again.

And now, I have the chance to find out what happened to her.

But what if pursuing the truth about my daughter risks my son’s life?

A whiplash-inducing, unputdownable crime thriller from the author of The Nurse, perfect for fans of CLARE MACKINTOSH and LISA JEWELL.

My Review:

I was so excited to get a chance to read and review this latest book by Claire Allen, who is a master of the slow-burn, all-consuming, dark and gripping thriller.

What a read this is! It starts off with the making of a documentary about Nora Logue whose daughter Daisy went missing seven years before. The thing that makes for such an intriguing and original storyline is however, that Nora was with Daisy when she disappeared but has no recollection of what happened that day.

I didn’t know what to think. There are those who believe that Nora harmed her daughter, but even though I doubted her mental state at times, I could tell that she really loved and missed her daughter.

What follows is a series of events that really ramp up the tension and suspense, right up to a dramatic ending.

Very cleverly plotted and pacey, I was totally gripped by this book, and I couldn’t wait to return to it each evening so that I could find out what had happened to Daisy.

I’d recommend this book so highly, it’s a must-read for anyone who enjoys a tense and chilling novel.

My Rating:

Rating: 5 out of 5.
