Michael Robotham says he’ll never be famous because he’s never been to jail, used drugs, failed at a suicide, had a messy divorce or had any other traumatic experience that seem prevalent with some authors.
He should be famous however, for his atmospheric and disturbing thrillers.
Two teenagers went missing. Now known as the Bingham Girls, they went without trace having arranged to run away with a school friend.
The author presents us with two facets of the story. Piper, one of the Bingham girls, writes ” My name is Piper Hadley and I went missing on the last Saturday of the summer holidays three years ago. I didn’t disappear completely and I didn’t run away, which is what a lot of people thought… I’ve been here all along – not in Heaven or in Hell or that place in between whose name I can never remember.”
We read the diary entries and thoughts of Piper as she struggles with long term imprisonment and worse, while on the outside, tragic events unfold that involve psychologist Professor Joe O’Loughlin. He persuades police to re-open the Bingham Girls case and it gets dangerous.
Tense, intriguing and cannot be put down!!
