Six teenage friends go to the woods and only five come home. Despite an extensive search, the missing girl, Aurora, is never found.
We pick up the story thirty years later, when the body of Aurora is found close to the teenager’s original campsite.
It’s a great set-up and was looking forward to a twisty, chilling ride. I have to say I was a tad disappointed.
As we got to know the five friends, I kept getting the three boys mixed up. I think this was because they were all a bit shallow and tended to blur together. The girls were easier to tell apart and one of them I really liked and she comes out well in the end – but I can’t say much without giving the ending away.
Unfortunately, I didn't really like the police officer leading the investigation.
He knew the group who went missing and has a shady secret of his own which we keep getting heavy hints about. This heavy hinting started to get a bit tedious.
When we finally discover who the killer was, I thought the final reveal could have been assigned to any of the five characters. (Sorry to say this because I really don't like not giving a good review).
The writing style was good but I don’t think the plot fulfilled on its promise.
My thanks to NetGalley and to the publisher for a copy of this book. This is my honest review.
