‘Stolen’ by Rebecca Muddiman
This is Muddiman's debut novel, and it bodes well for the author's future. She scarcely puts a foot wrong as she guides us through the intricate plot of Stolen, which begins with a violent assault and the abduction of a baby. Abby Henshaw, the grieving mother, never gives up hope of one day being reunited with her lost daughter. There are numerous twists in this story; just as you've grasped the consequences of one betrayal, another one occurs, tying the plot ever-tighter in a convoluted cat's-cradle of events. Realistic characters and an engaging Detective Inspector who is determined not to give up on the search for the missing child make this an intriguing and enjoyable read.
