From the first chapter, I was instantly riveted. I felt like I got to know Nora from the very beginning and she was brilliantly developed. The details were woven through the pages and didn't interrupt the story or feel like a massive information dump. They were seamlessly incorporated and this meant that I didn't feel like I was bogged down with detail and could enjoy the plot.
The main storyline about the missing girls was also introduced quickly which I liked. It got straight into the mystery without any messing about. The intrigue created was maintained the whole way through.
The book was faultlessly paced throughout and the pace adjusted accordingly in all the right places. This was especially apparent towards the end of the novel. The tension ramped up, and kept me frantically turning the pages. I found the ending extremely satisfying and almost my ideal novel ending!
As a lover of Midsomer Murders, I also have to mention the little reference to it in chapter 29 which I particularly enjoyed!!
Overall, I'd give this book 5 out of 5! It was flawlessly paced, riveting and maintained intrigue throughout.
