If you are wondering how I am choosing my books lately, look no further then Prairie Horizons aka Lesley’s Book Nook and her best books of 2012. I was somewhat aghast when I realized that I had only read one of the books on her top ten list for 2012! So, I set about quietly and methodically reading them all. So far, not a single disappointment.
The latest was Gone by Mo Hayder.
When Rose’s car is hijacked with her eleven year old daughter Martha in the back seat, the police assure her that car jackers don’t want children. That as soon as he realizes that she is in the back seat, he will let her go.
As minutes stretch to hours, Detective Cafferty has to admit that it might be something more.
A very good mystery. I couldn’t put it down, finding excuses to read every chance I could, and staying up way too late. I had no idea till almost the very end who the car jacker was.
