    The tale is written in multiple voices to attempt alternative views of the crime. It is partially successful though I never quite got into the minds of the different characters . Short entries , rather like diary posts would lend this well to audio... pages turn quickly and the truth doesn’t finally emerge til the last entry so as such it creates the need to know tension of the detective story but really it poses more questions about the press and their impact on people’s lives ...

The point of view switches between chapters with the point of view switching from the Widow, Reporter, and the Detective. It has been 4 years since little Bella Elliot went missing, while her mother Dawn left her unattended in the front yard. Glen Taylor became the prime suspect for the disappearance: he was charged with the crime, acquitted, and then he was killed stepping in front of a bus. All of these facts we learn in the first three pages of the book from Jean Taylor, who adds, “I was glad he was gone. No more of his nonsense." Glen was not a nice person and was manipulative, controlling, secretive and emotionally abusive. Bob, the detective, is a hard-working, caring, honest man, who has found good reasons to suspect Glen of taking the little girl from her yard. Kate is the only reporter, of the many who try, to break though to gain access to Jean Taylor. Kat really doesn’t know if, with that access, that she has learned anything or has just been played by Jean. When Glen is killed the reporter and detective, both believing they have a relationship of trust with Jean, try to get her help still hoping to learn what happened to Bella. Jean does let Kate back into her life and says of that time: “Kate seems to be in charge of things. It's quite nice to have someone in charge of me again. I was beginning to think I'd have to cope with everything on my own." What makes this an emotionally powerful novel is that none of the characters emerge at the ending. in quite the same state as they were in the beginning. They change and our feelings for them change. Some critics suggest that Barton reveals too much, too soon, but the approach seems to be part of her process of building on what, in the beginning, were lies the characters were telling themselves. That approach does result in our being part of the change in seeing the characters differently: which was really a strength of the book. More on this book and author at www.connectedeventsmatter.com

    A widow, her husband, a reporter and a detective cross paths in this missing child novel. I changed my mind from guilty to not a few times and also from sympathy for the widow to "what the heck??" An enjoyable book that keeps you going to try to figure out exactly what happened.
