An original gripping thriller.
In the early 1970s a young boy called Jens disappears from a remote Swedish island. Fast forward twenty years and his mother, Julia and his grandfather, Gerlof, are attempting to unravel the mystery of what happened to Jens.
I have to admit I did not like the first couple of chapters of this book, I couldn’t settle into the story and I found myself putting it down and having to come back to it hours later. However I am glad I stuck with it as once I did get into it I became hooked and was unable to put the novel down.
The structure of this novel suited the story it was portraying. All the chapters were relatively short and told through different prospectives which added a lot of depth to the novel.
The characters within this novel have been extremely well thought out and everyone has a purpose within the novel. I could vividly see the characters within my mind as the story was being played out.
I recommend this book to anyone who love to read a great thriller, you will not be disappointed.
A copy of this novel was received from transworld publishers, all opinions are my own through reading this book.
