Summary

I know who took my daughter. Only his mother can help me.... 

My little girl’s room is dark. Her bed is empty. I turn on her unicorn nightlight and bury my face in her pillow, my heart breaking.

I know who did this. His name is Samuel Barlow. He has pale sallow skin and red-rimmed icy-blue eyes. But no one will listen. 

As darkness falls and rain lashes against the window, there’s a knock at my door and I open it to see those same eyes staring back at me. It’s his mother and she says she can help me find my daughter.

My gut feeling says don’t trust her.

But as hopes of finding my little girl fade with each passing hour, how can I turn away?

A completely gripping and twist-packed listen from the number one best-selling author K.L. Slater. If you like Liane Moriarty and Lisa Jewell you will be totally hooked on Missing.

Gripping!!!

K L Slater, as always never disappoints! I was glued to this book from the very beginning!
I couldn't stop listening! The twists and turns and unexpected surprises is nothing new from Slater. Loved it! Never disappoints!

Entertaining

Entertaining although some of the narration was odd and often I didn’t know who was speaking. The ending was interminable! Every time I thought it had to be over there was yet another chapter (constantly inducing eye rolls), much of which was extremely repetitive, padded or added nothing and that spoiled it for me.

Gripping but slow

Some of the details of the characters are repeated multiple times and some parts of the story drag on a bit long but the twist is remarkable and I could not stop listening and had to finish it in one go!

Another great book

Great storyline as usual but KL Slater. The narrator’s accents were terrible though. Most of this author’s books are set around the Nottinghamshire area which has a very distinct accent. Everyone who was ‘local’ sounded like a farmer from Yorkshire and it was a bit ridiculous to be honest. Otherwise, a great listen.

predictable

I did listen all the way through but found the plot twists too contrived and unbelievable. No sympathy with any of the characters. They were all flawed. Clearly the plan! Easy to work out who had shut little Jimmy in the fridge so too predictable. Narrator ok apart from when doing male voices.

Predictable

I've enjoyed some of her books but this one was a real disappointment. I thought every so called twist was completely obvious. Such a shame.

Depressing, slow and tedious

I have enjoyed a few of KL Slaters audio books, so was so disappointed with this one.. I really struggled to get to the end! I had to listen to it on double speed because it was so tedious and miserable! I really wish I’d just given up and returned it, but I was hoping it would pick up. Sadly it didn’t at all.. definitely don’t recommend

Good so far but…

Always love KL Slater’s books on Audible, but I was sad to see, or hear rather, that Lucy Price-Lewis wasn’t the narrator!!

Just started

I’m very disappointed that Lucy price Lewis is not the narrator for this one. I was waiting to read on my kindle until the audible version was released just for that reason. I just started so we’ll see how it goes. I know the book is gonna be amazing (I own all of KL Slaters books) she’s an amazing author. Will update when I’ve finished.


Ok, so I finally finished and gotta say that I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the others. It was good but maybe would’ve enjoyed more if I read myself rather than listening. I wasn’t a fan of the narrator.

Absolutely amazing

Kim does it again. And I must say I was skeptical with Ms Lucy price not narrating but Kristin filled those shoes remarkably. one of my top 5 for sure.

Good book

I missed Lucy! She and KL Slater are one in my Brian hard to get used to another, she did great just hard to pivot.

Missing

I enjoyed the story. This narrator sounds like she's yelling at me. Quite irritating. There's no reason to sound alarmed over little things. Overall I thought it was good.

The Best One Yet!

I’ve listened to all of the available K. L. Slater books, and they always throw you for a loop at some point. But this book was by far the best! So many twists a turns! I was on the edge of my seat. LOVED IT!

Not a fan

Started slowly and I hoped it would pick up, based on the positive reviews. Nope. Could not sympathize with any character, nor care what happened to them.
