I know who took my daughter. Only his mother can help me....
My little girl’s room is dark. Her bed is empty. I turn on her unicorn nightlight and bury my face in her pillow, my heart breaking.
I know who did this. His name is Samuel Barlow. He has pale sallow skin and red-rimmed icy-blue eyes. But no one will listen.
As darkness falls and rain lashes against the window, there’s a knock at my door and I open it to see those same eyes staring back at me. It’s his mother and she says she can help me find my daughter.
My gut feeling says don’t trust her.
But as hopes of finding my little girl fade with each passing hour, how can I turn away?
A completely gripping and twist-packed listen from the number one best-selling author K.L. Slater. If you like Liane Moriarty and Lisa Jewell you will be totally hooked on Missing.

This is my review of Missing.
Eight-year-old Jimmy had died twenty-six years ago, a tragedy, being trapped in an old abandoned warehouse when someone had locked the metal door, and left him to die.
Samuel Barlow, the next-door neighbor, had been charged and was serving time in prison. Samuel’s mum, Maggie had lied to the police to cover for her son after murder of the schoolboy,
Jimmy’s big sister, Josie had been thirteen when he died.
Samuel had been obsessed with Josie…always watching from afar, and didn’t like sharing her with her little brother.
Now, years later, Samuel was free. And Josie’s eight-year-old daughter, Ivy is missing. Josie knows that Samuel has taken her daughter, for ruining his life.
Lots of twists, turns, and secrets to satisfy the reader.
Many thanks to the author, Bookouture and Net Galley for my digital copy.
Josie Bennett will never forget April 14, 1993. It was the day her whole world changed. It was this day, 26 years ago, that her eight-year-old little brother, Jimmy, went missing. Her 19-year-old next-door neighbour, Samuel Barlow, was charged and sentenced to 30 years in prison. He’s just been granted parole five years early. The problem? Josie now has a little girl, Ivy, who is exactly the same age as Jimmy was when he was murdered….
When Ivy goes missing one afternoon, Josie knows without a doubt who’s responsible.
Missing children are such a popular trope for psychological thrillers, BUT K.L. Slater puts her signature twist with an emotional punch on it and makes it such a compelling read. I was so excited to be granted early access to yet another of the Queen of Psychological Thrillers’ books. Slater knows that our human nature drives us to eagerly flip pages to learn the identity of the kidnapper in this trope, so she takes it up a notch and presents us with a story where the mother already knows the kidnapper’s identity. You would think that it would decrease the panic and that the energy spent searching for a suspect could be spent elsewhere, but it actually adds to the panic and frenzy because the parent knows what the kidnapper is capable of doing. In this case, Josie knows that he killed her little brother. The clock is ticking.
Readers will love the twists, yes, plural, and appreciate what it took for Josie to find the strength to face her past in order to move forward with her future. In exploring parenthood, Slater places us right in the middle of a parent’s worst nightmare, straps us into the rollercoaster and writes to emotionally invest us in the events as we breathlessly and white-knuckled take one twisty turn after another.
Like any great ride at an amusement park, the thrill-seeker will hop off at the end of the ride and line up once more to subject themselves to another adrenaline rush. It’s no different after turning the final page of a Slater thriller. You’ll be eagerly anticipating the next one. Guaranteed
Will Josie forever be known as the murdered boy’s sister and mother of the kidnapped girl? Will the evil event pass “through the generations like an ill wind” or will Josie be able to press pause and rewrite Ivy’s future?
I was gifted this advance copy by K.L. Slater, Bookouture and NetGalley and was under no obligation to provide a review.

This tells the story of Josie and her daughter, Ivy. Josie has had a troubled childhood and tragically, her younger brother was murdered when she was just 13. Samuel Barlow, the man responsible, has served a 25 year sentence for his crime, but is now due for early release. Only days after, Josie's daughter goes missing....
I loved the underlying menace conveyed throughout the story and found the characters realistic and well drawn. I especially empathised with Josie and her terror and despair at finding her daughter missing. There are twists and turns aplenty leaving you not knowing who to trust or believe. The final twist was completely unexpected!
If you've read any of K L Slater's books before, you'll love this. And if you haven't, what are you waiting for!
