Simone Porter and her husband Matt lead a normal busy life as a journalist and a doctor today, but eighteen years ago, fate had dealt them a cruel blow, the pain of which they still felt.

Eighteen years ago, their six month old daughter, Helena, was stolen from the park. Simone, a teenager herself and Matt a medical student had been exhausted and Matt’s other had come to help them out by taking Helena to the park, when she gets stolen. All efforts at tracing Helena came to no good and slowly Simone and Matt rebuilt their lives, but the grief remained with them.

So, eighteen years since then, Simone gets approached by a young woman who claims that she was Helena, Simone is completely thrown off balance. Simone and Matt don’t know what to think but before they can progress further, even ascertain if the young woman was indeed, their daughter, Helena or Grace as she is called, disappears, again. For the second time in their lives Simone and Matt are plunged into the same feelings of loss and helplessness.

Simone needs to know what happened. She can’t just let her daughter, if it was her daughter, disappear a second time. Refusing to be a silent spectator, Simone follows leads, hunts down information as best as she could. As she investigates, what emerges is beyond what she could have ever imagined.

An absolutely gripping, nail-biting psychological thriller. Keeps you guessing till the very end. I wish I could say more, but that would totally spoil it for you. Do read this if you like psychological thrillers, which keep you at the very edge of your seat.

My Rating: 4/5
