This book has the best opening, both intriguing and terrifying. Eleven-year-old Jack and his two sisters sit in a broken-down car on the motorway waiting for their mother to return. She tells them to stay in the car while she walks to the phone on the motorway to get help.
Jack is left in charge and his mother has promised she will return. They wait but their mother doesn’t come back. Jack’s two young sisters get restless and he has to make decisions for all three of them.
Three years later Jack is still in charge in their family home. He has to protect his sisters, and take care of them. Quite by accident he stumbles onto something that sparks a memory of that fateful day on the motorway. After three years the truth behind his mother’s disappearance might just be revealed.
A cracking crime novel to keep you company on your next holiday.
