What a read! What you see isn’t what you get – and it’s not all over until the fat lady sings! Leila Syed is a focused, professional woman. She has a close bond with her younger sister who lives close by with her husband and son, so when her brother-in-law phones in a panic one morning to ask if she can drop three year old Max at nursery, Leila doesn’t hesitate to say ‘yes’. Hours later, she recieves a call from Max’s father, Andrew, to say that the school called to find out where Max was. Racing to her car, Leila is horrified to realise that she completely forgot to drop him off. As we follow on from this disastrous day, we track the high profile trial and experience this horror from the differing views of all involved. First up, I have to admit that this is my first novel by Kia Abdullah and I have no idea why I haven’t heard of her before. Writing with aplomb and style, she has produced a novel which drew me in and had me completely involved and enthralled from the very start. There is so much more to this story that first appears and I was surprised more than once with twists and turns. Very accomplished and polished, this is one thriller I just have to recommend. This is an author on my ‘must not miss’ list from here on in, and this stunning read easily deserves all five shining stars!
