The Blurb

It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared without a trace. Then a letter from her father arrives – ‘I need to talk to you. That girl. I saw that girl.’ Has her father’s dementia worsened, or has he really seen Corinne? Returning home, Nicolette must finally face what happened on that terrible night all those years ago.

Then, another young woman goes missing, almost to the day of the anniversary of when Corinne vanished. And like ten years ago, the whole town is a suspect.

Told backwards – Day 15 to Day 1 – Nicolette works to unravel the truth, revealing shocking secrets about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne.

Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls is a brilliantly plotted debut thriller that will leave you breathless.

The Review

I’m not one for mystery books because quite frankly I am awful at solving them. I would make the world’s worst gumshoe. However, recently I have been reading more and more of the genre and I have been enjoying the books I have read a lot…still with the poor detective skills.

All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda was another one that foiled me. It is told retrospectively which besides being insanely clever was really quirky and interesting. It is also the sign of a great writer who can write backwards without revealing anything. My mind was officially blown.

The characters all held an elusive quality about them; author Megan Miranda did not let you get too close to them making everyone a suspect.  I swear that every character had the finger of blame pointed at them by me on more than one occasion.

All the Missing Girls is a really good mystery thriller and is perfect for those, like me, that are reading out of their comfort zone.
