On the day that Rachel Jenner's eight-year-old son Ben goes missing, the bottom falls out of her world. Desperate to find her boy, she's completely unprepared for how quickly her personal hell is thrust into the media spotlight. She let Ben out of her sight, and now he's gone-- so of course the nation thinks she is to blame. But what really happened that afternoon? Caught between the tragedy of losing her son, a frenetic police investigation and a public who have turned against her, Rachel must now face the awful truth-- that everything she knew about herself and the people around her is a lie. And there is nobody left, not even her family, who she can trust.

Rachel allows her son, Ben, to run ahead of her while walking in the woods. That is the beginning of her nightmare. With her son missing and the media against her, she tries to do everything in her power to find Ben.
The author provides viewpoints from both Rachel and the lead investigator, Jim.
Nicely written debut.

Enjoyable book. Some loose ends that were tied up, but not satisfactorily - why was the father injured? Why was this part even included in the book? I am not sure why so much onus was put on DI Clemo's discussions with the therapist. Just a lot of loose ends, or unsatisfactory character development. But it did have a draw that kept you reading. Hopefully further books will hope the author get better at character development.
