Four strangers are missing. Left at their last known locations are birthday cards that read …
YOUR GIFT IS THE GAME. DARE TO PLAY?
The police aren’t worried – it’s just a game. But the families are frantic. As psychologist and private detective Dr Augusta Bloom delves into the lives of the missing people, she finds something that binds them all.
And that something makes them very dangerous indeed.
As more disappearances are reported and new birthday cards uncovered. Dr Bloom races to unravel the mystery and find the missing people.
But what if, this time, they are the ones she should fear?
I was hooked on this book the moment I saw the cover. It’s pretty awesome. It draws you in straight away and you have to know what it is about… then you read the synopsis and really how can that not draw you in even more .. I mean come on .. what an idea.
Granted this copy was an ARC and the author can not be held for this .. but the ebook formatting for this book was a little poor but aside from that fact the book was a very good read. It did start off a little confusing, but that feeling didn’t last long. I absolutely loved that their were two stories running simultaneously.
This book soon became a book you could not put down. It is not your normal kind of missing person case because nobody has been taken against their own will, which is what makes the book so fantastic.
There was a huge emphasis on social media in this book which I love, we are all addicted to social media and many of us can not live a full day without checking up on Facebook or twitter so I do feel this is always an important aspect to have in a book as it makes it more realistic.
If you don’t mind reading a fast paced mystery which has its fair share of slow paced parts. I would definitely recommend this book to you.
