THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In her enthralling debut, Gilly Macmillan explores a mother's search for her missing son, weaving a taut psychological thriller as gripping and skillful as The Girl on the Train and The Guilty One.

In a heartbeat, everything changes...

Rachel Jenner is walking in a Bristol park with her eight-year-old son, Ben, when he asks if he can run ahead. It's an ordinary request on an ordinary Sunday afternoon, and Rachel has no reason to worry??until Ben vanishes.

Police are called, search parties go out, and Rachel, already insecure after her recent divorce, feels herself coming undone. As hours and then days pass without a sign of Ben, everyone who knew him is called into question, from Rachel's newly married ex-husband to her mother-of-the-year sister. Inevitably, media attention focuses on Rachel too, and the public's attitude toward her begins to shift from sympathy to suspicion.

As she desperately pieces together the threadbare clues, Rachel realizes that nothing is quite as she imagined it to be, not even her own judgment. And the greatest dangers may lie not in the anonymous strangers of every parent's nightmares, but behind the familiar smiles of those she trusts the most.

Where is Ben? The clock is ticking...… (mais)

A well-done, tight, and not-at-all maudlin thriller. Did not want to put this one down, and finished it in record speed. This author kept me guessing -- and I liked that! 3.5 stars rounded up. Can't wait to see what she writes next. Sign me up! ( )

This was the first book I've read by Gill Macmillan. It centers around Rachel, her son Ben and Ben's dad, John. John and Rachel are divorced. Ben lives with Rachel. One day, she and Ben are out for a walk with their dog and Ben disappears. Jim Clemo is assigned to investigate Ben's disappearance. Rachel's sister comes to live with her during this time and ends up revealing a family secret that Rachel never knew. This is the only thing that I can of that would apply to the "what she knew" that is the title of the book. ( )

I did not realize that this was the first in a series, so that's something new lol. I'm assuming the books in the series are more stand-alone than must-read-in-order. Just an fyi for everyone.

This book is told from two different points of view. We see everything from the perspective of the mother whose child is missing and the lead investigator trying to find him. The switching back and forth took a little bit of getting used to, but it wasn't problematic or deter from the story. The chapters switched between narrators, and each one was marked for which character was talking.

The story grabbed me pretty quickly right off the bat. I think the first couple of chapters I was slightly confused, but got straightened out in my head rather fast. The chapters were relatively short and had a lot of plot within each one. It was easy to follow the story from one space to another. Based on the first couple of chapters, I thought there was going to be no solution to the disappearance, so I was surprised at the end (I won't tell you if it was good or bad, you have to read it to find out...no spoilers!). There were other small twists and turns that I didn't see coming, which was unexpected but definitely gave me something else to think about.

Character development was well done. The mother's narration was written with the stress and emotional pain you would expect from someone in her situation, and it didn't just say "she went on the news and read a script the police put together for her," it actually went into what she was thinking, how she was reacting. It was very powerful writing. As for the police investigator, his development was just as well done. It went into how obsessed he became with trying to find the missing boy, how he couldn't sleep, etc. I believe this is very true-to-life as far as investigators.

All in all, a great read. I finished it relatively quickly. It grabs you, pulls you in, makes you think and feel, and hope for a happy ending. I definitely recommend if you like reading anything that pulls at the heartstrings or has some mystery. If you are someone who is overly sensitive to crimes against children though, you may want to skip this one. Otherwise, please, read it. ( )
