This contains everything I want in a police thriller! I’m so happy it’s a series! 5 stars!

The Missing Ones is a gripping and engaging thriller and Gibney weaves together an intricate web of characters and subplots to divulge in. Detective Lottie Parker, the MC, is struggling with a loss and raising her teenage kids, as well as some dark secrets from the past which surfaces, an all her flaws and her struggles really make her a loveable character. The banter with her colleague Boyd is also very entertaining to follow.

This thrilling novel never loses its grip on the reader. Gibney cleverly uses different lengths of the chapters and switches from present to past time to create a swift pace and keep the reader involved. I’ve already bought the next book in the series and cannot wait to start reading it!
