Summary

A missing girl. A loving mother who never gave up. A betrayed wife who doesn’t know who to trust.

Teenager Edie Hudson was nobody’s little darling, which made vanishing all too easy. Two decades later, she’s been forgotten by everyone except her mother, Samantha.

And the person who knows what happened to her.

Samantha has had a long time to remember, and to regret. Having seen how little her daughter mattered to the community in the months following her disappearance, she wonders if Edie was lost before she was even gone. Or was it guilt, not indifference, that made the locals turn a blind eye? When she meets Frances, she at last starts to hope for answers.

Because Frances is obsessed with the mystery too, after finding a photo of her husband with the girl who disappeared.

What really happened all those years ago? And just how dangerous could it be to find out?

Excellent....

Extremely well written.., I heard no " mispronounciations" like the other reviewer complained. I enjoyed the not overly descriptive writing , the character development, and that air of menace. I'd rather have a little predictability than plot twists that are far fetched and silly. No the end is not a huge shocker for jaded thriller fans but the slow build up is an entertaining but sad journey.

Sleepless Again!

"The Missing" will keep you on the edge of your seat. Daisy Pearce is an author I've just discovered. This was my second discovery of hers. The first book "The Silence" was equally intriguing. Well written, spot-on Narrators. Very twisty turns of events. Characters you wish you could meet again. If you love psychological thrillers, you must read these books!

I couldn't stop listening

this was a very gripping suspenseful thriller. all the strong characters in this book were female, another plus. I listened to this over the last 2 days, it was that compelling. highly recommend.

Predictable

Again I fell for the publisher summary for this author. Both of them now have the same problem.

They are predictable very early in the story. If you just want a drama about a mother whose kid goes missing and her struggle this would be good.

The narrator mispronounced so many words. I'm used to the ones that the British pronounce different and none of them were those.

Can't complain that much since it was a Kindle I unlimited read and listen for free one.
