Review quote

"Cleverly constructed ... this engaging and compulsive story will reel you in and keep you guessing right till the end, which, by the way, is an absolute belter. Prepare to have your mind well and truly twisted" Heat "A tense and dramatic thriller. Told from the viewpoints of several characters - all impressively well realised - and interspersed with case files from kidnappings in more exotic locales, this makes for an intriguing story, that wrongfoots at several turns." Sunday Mirror "So when an author you've admired from their very first book hits the sweet spot in the writing and storytelling stakes it is a real moment of reading joy, such as has just happened with Emma Kavanagh and The Missing Hours. I was a huge fan of the previous two novels but this was a pretty much one sitting completely immersed practically inhaled read that actually I've just put down. And had to write about straight away. With a perfectly placed atmospheric ending that just put the icing right on top of the already delicious cake, The Missing Hours comes highly recommended from me."

There is nothing about this book I didn't love. I can't say more than that - except more, please!" For Winter Nightsshow more
