Waking up today, I felt the need for a temporary relief from all the To-Dos in life, and I yearned for a really lazy morning. I then thought why not check out Cheryl’s book, Missing, which I had purchased a few days back. I settled down in my favorite armchair with a cup of tea and my Kindle and very quickly I found myself swept away in another world.
Cheryl weaves a fast, spellbinding plot in Missing. I found myself inside the minds of the police officers speculating where the missing child could be, feeling affection for some of the characters like old Mrs. Murray, while being outraged by others.
Instead of relying on fancy tech, the plot relies on old-fashioned logic to reason out the mystery. I wish that all our police detectives were so conscientious in intelligently pursuing cases, as were Carol and Adam in Missing.
The book ends on a surprising note, and I felt a sense of accomplishment as if it is me, not the police officers, who solved the mystery.
I enjoyed the book and I would certainly recommend it if you like great fiction.
