Synopsis

'It's just to say that no-one has come to pick Nathan up from school, and we were wondering if there was a problem of some kind?'

As Mark Douglas photographs a pod of whales stranded in the waters off Edinburgh's Portobello Beach, he is called by his son's school: his wife, Lauren, hasn't turned up to collect their son. Calm at first, Mark collects Nathan and takes him home but as the hours slowly crawl by he increasingly starts to worry.

With brilliantly controlled reveals, we learn some of the painful secrets of the couple's shared past, not least that it isn't the first time Lauren has disappeared. And as Mark struggles to care for his son and shield him from the truth of what's going on, the police seem dangerously short of leads. That is, until a shocking discovery...

Not bad

Gradually picks up speed but peters out at the end - quite a relief actually! A fair bit of violence. Couldn't decide whether or not I liked the protagonist, but a touching relationship between him and his son.

Boo!

This is only 1\3 of a book, very little character development & a generic plot. Minimal suspense. Overall: don't bother.

Readable but predictable
July 30th, 2014
Not keen on the ending, hardly a resolution. Some elements of the story weren't believable and didn't warm to any of the characters, except Nathan. However, very readable.
