Publisher's Summary

A truly original psychological crime novel about a missing child and the scandal that erupts in the aftermath, brilliantly plotted with a shocking twist

She was certain it was Daisy in the flower costume....

When eight-year-old Daisy Mason vanishes from her family's Oxford home during a costume party, Detective Inspector Adam Fawley knows that nine times out of 10, the offender is someone close to home. And Daisy's family is certainly strange - her mother is obsessed with keeping up appearances, while her father is cold and defensive under questioning. And then there's Daisy's little brother, so withdrawn and uncommunicative....

DI Fawley works against the clock to find any trace of the little girl, but it's as if she disappeared into thin air - no one saw anything; no one knows anything. But everyone has an opinion, and everyone, it seems, has a secret to conceal.

With a story that feels all too real, Close to Home is the best kind of suspense - the kind that sends chills down your spine and keeps you up late at night, thrilled and terrified.

Too much social media!!

The amount of social media in this book makes for a dull audio book. For example, the reader repeats every element of each twitter post and there are a lot of twitter posts. Also, FB posts and regular media. Probably makes for a dull book to read as well. Omit all that and it might be a decent book.

Riveting!!

All I can say is, wow! A true psychological thriller. The plot had tons of twists and turns, and kept me guessing up to the very surprising end. The characters were all very well developed and believably integrated into the story. A little girl goes missing and half the people in her life seem like they have motive to have killed her, told from multiple perspectives. Narration was very good but a bit hard to understand the hard British accents at times. Overall an excellent read and worthy use of a credit!
