Stars: 3

Everyone has secrets, and Rachel Holloway is no exception.She’s worked hard to keep the past where it belongs: dead and buried. And so far, she’s been very successful.

But now the small newspaper where she works wants to produce a podcast on a cold case: the disappearance twelve years ago of little Molly Forster.

Some secrets should never see the light of day, and as far as Rachel is concerned, whatever happened to little Molly is one of them. Rachel has a life now, a boyfriend she loves and a three-year-old daughter she adores, and she will do anything to protect them.

But to do that, no one can ever know that she is Molly Forster.

Review –

I’m usually a big crime drama fan, but this one sucked.

Rachel Holloway works at a floundering newspaper with the bright idea to boost readership by starting a podcast focused on a true unsolved crime story: what happened to little Molly Forster, the 12-year old only survivor of the massacre of her family twelve years earlier? Rachel panics, and does everything she can to sabotage the podcast, because she has a secret: she is Molly. And she’s been hiding ever since, terrified that the killer would finish what he started.

My problem is that from the get-go we know where the missing child is and who she is and a few chapters later we discover who the killer is. So why read any more? it’s a done deal. Of course, I finished this book(because I never NOT finish a book) but it was a real struggle to the very end.

I do like the cover very much, however.
