Publisher's Summary

Three years ago Toni's five-year-old daughter, Evie, disappeared after leaving school. The police have never been able to find her. There were no witnesses, no CCTV, no trace.

But Toni believes her daughter is alive. And as she begins to silently piece together her memories, the full story of the past begins to reveal itself - and a devastating truth.

Toni's mind is trapped in a world of silence. Her only chance to save herself is to manage the impossible: she must find a way to make herself heard. She must find her daughter.

A compelling, gripping thriller with a breathtaking twist that will keep you awake until the early hours. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Behind Closed Doors and The Sister.

    "Entertaining"

    Right up until the end, I enjoyed it, so I'll give 4 stars. To me, the journey is just as important as the destination, and I found that I enjoyed the story even if not the payoff so much. The end felt rushed and a little forced...like trying too hard for the big twist...only the big twist wasn't really that big. In order for the twist to work well for me, there has to be adequate foreshadowing and clues along the way for me to look back and think OMG, why didn't I see that?!!! The twists in this either came out of left field or were too obvious. One more nit, which is wrapped up with the big twist is that the villain explained themself. I hate that. It's such an overused and cliched device in mystery/thrillers that it has begun to throw me out of the story every time I come across it. I can suspend disbelief for a story if it's something fresh, but I cannot suspend disbelief that every villain always gets the opportunity to spill their guts at the moment they are caught out, giving away all of their motives and methods in one long vitriolic diatribe. I've stopped reading books at the end when it happens, it irks me so much. This particular villain's rant was so close to the very end that I went ahead and finished....which, again, the end was just so rushed and sloppy that it didn't take long. In short: worth the read if you, like me, are ok with being entertained for the duration of the story even when the end is weak.

    "Okay"

    The story was OK. It was somewhat predictable and the way some characters tied together was somewhat far fetched, however, it was entertaining and a quick read.

    "Ending was a disappointment/ Spoiler Alert"

    I enjoyed the book as far as it pulled me through , making me want to know more. But the ending was such a disappointment because 1, I felt that the author got sick of writing and quickly wrote through an ending so that she could put it to bed. Two, such a big deal was made out of her taking the sedatives through the entire book, only for the ending to make like it was no big deal at all. There were many characters who could have been the kidnapper. The writer did a good job at making me wonder who it could have been. But at the end I was so let down, because the true kidnapper(s) were not even suggested that they could have been the ones. I felt a bit tricked. I felt like the author was having a little party and the reader was not invited. I gave it five stars because it did keep me interested, I just was disappointed at how the author did the ending as if on a whim.

    "BY FAR BETTER THAN "WHAT SHE KNEW""

    The summary is misleading, this is an excellent suspense/thriller that really does keep you on your toes. I compare this with "What She Knew" because I read it and the ratings are high, but this book, "Blink", has several more characters and therefore suspects and interweaving plotlon

    "Great Read"

    It was a bit confusing at the end to determine who was what due to different aliases but it was a great plot and kept you guessing until the end! which I love.

    "Decent story."

    Held my interest. Easy to stay with.
    Wraps up in a neat little bow a bit simply but I won't complain.
    Narrator was very good.

    "Good story"

    I knew the culprit too early on. Some passages so ploddingly boring I almost stopped listening. Detailed descriptions of office rooms and all of their contents does not move the story forward. The main character was not easy to like or root for-- too clueless and culpable of neglect. Could have been more artfully told, but ingenious story bones.

    Story
    "Fast Paced Page-Turner"

    A good, well-paced novel that will grab you and keep you hooked until the last moment! Toni is a single mother recovering from the death of her husband and struggling to raise her five year old daughter Evie with the help of her mother but in a new town and with a new job, she feels alone. Evie seems to have taken the interest of her teacher's assistant, but she suddenly hates going to school, and Toni marks it up to adjustment. When Evie goes missing, the mystery is taken to new heights.
    There are many moments of clues in the story that you must try to retain to puzzle out later. There are several creepy characters in this book and you just don't know who to trust. The end is an explosion of twists and reveals, but I wished that the stories woven together were pulled together a little more, or the story drawn out a bit. The end felt like a bomb exploding oddly from a slow burn. Other than that, an easy read that entertains and thrills at times. Recommended!

    "Genius - loved this book"
    What did you like best about this story?

    You know when you sit in stunned silence after finishing a book? Those few minutes when you're trying to get your head around the revelations which delivered a perfect ending? That's me now. This is the first book I've read by KL Slater and will definitely not be the last. The characters in this book were so believable and real, I found myself getting annoyed with them, wanting to hug others and wanting to give the main character a good telling off at times too. Only a skilled writer can draw the reader into this extent and I tip my hat to Kim for she writes with beautiful, touching believable prose.
    The second half of the book is very face paced and as each twist and turn is expertly delivered, I found myself unable to carry on with everyday life until I knew just a little bit more. It's outstandingly clever, definitely the kind of book I wish I had written myself. If you like a good psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns, then you will love this book.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator did a fantastic job too.

    "Don't bother"

    Sorry but ending seems rushed. Also
    the main character seems rather weak and pathetic. The twists are unbelievable and the whole thing a waste of time.

    Story
    "Blink! just Don't Miss It!"

    Another high quality thriller with the usual excellent narration from Lucy Price-Lewis who is one of the best female narrators out there. I found this one very well-written, it’s tight and economical and it feels like it packs quite a lot into its relatively short length. I say that but really not an awful lot happens, there is a lot of the ordinary side of life in here an yet it somehow just works. It very much deals with how we often struggle when the veneer of security that we think protects us is broken and life turns on tragic events. How seemingly strong people can be brought lower and end up being made to look much worse by the careless judgement of modern society.

    It uses a clever device of someone trapped within their own mind and the events of three years previously. The plot twists and turns and it’s genuinely difficult right up until towards the end to see your way to the ending. For me that actual ending itself was just slightly weaker than the rest of the book but I’ve read much worse and the journey to get there was genuinely exciting and unpredictable. Well worth a credit!

    Story
    "Thin storyline of child abduction."

    A thin storyline is stretched woefully in order to complete a book. Implausible characters, surround a grieving widow and her young daughter in a tale of child neglect and emotional abuse, ultimately child abduction and revenge. The child is the most engaging character in the book which despite the flimsy writing is well narrated. Not a good read, and in my view sensationalist treatment of very serious subjects.

    "Brilliant from the start"

    I thought this book was brilliant and well written. I was hooked from the start and the ending on who took Evie was fantastic.... I just wish the ending was better, it just ended, after 3 years missing from her daughter I just hoped for a better ending, I feel there should be a second book to explain Evie and Mum being reunited.

    This book would make an amazing film, book is much better the The Girl On A Train.

    Having read Safe With Me by the same author, I immediately bought Blink and was not disappointed. I enjoyed it equally as much however, like Safe With Me, I would have preferred a few less mentally disturbed characters.
