From the comfort of my sofa

I just like to read! There is no greater pleasure than a peaceful house and a good book. I will read most genres but not sure I have the imagination to really "get" some science fiction and fantasy.
First One Missing: One Daughter Gone... Whose Next? - Tammy Cohen

I have read two of Tammy Cohen's books already and was really looking forward to this one.  First One Missing is about every parent's worst nightmare, the murder of their child, and the aftermath for the families and the police.  As a topic this is dark and terrifying: child murder, references to paedophilia and the torture that the families go through.


As in her previous books, Tammy's ability to focus on the thoughts and actions of each character in detail makes this book both emotional and enthralling.  The characters and their reactions to their situation feel genuine and as always Tammy's writing is spot on.


This may well be my favourite Tammy Cohen book.
