On the tenth anniversary of her daughter Autumn’s abduction, Francine receives an anonymous note containing just five words: I KNOW WHERE SHE IS
When a young woman approaches her the next day claiming to have sent the letter Francine wants to dismiss it as a cruel, twisted joke.
But the stranger knows things that only Autumn would know.
It soon becomes clear that Francine must go to dark places in order to learn the truth about her child’s kidnapping.
She will discover that danger comes from unexpected sources. She will do things she never imagined herself capable of.
But will Francine get her daughter back – or is it too late?
I must admit, I Know Where She Is was not what I was expecting – in a good way! This book is edgy, full of sass and shows just what lengths a parent, in this case the mother Francine, will go to.
Its been ten years since Francine’s daughter, Autumn, disappeared when she receives a scrawled note simply saying…..I KNOW WHERE SHE IS. Francine knows that this has to have something to do with Autumn, but her ex-husband and Autumn’s father isn’t so sure and is extremely dismissive of Francine. I didn’t like Will at all…..but I think that was the point! In the last ten years, Francine and Will have gone in different directions, she has hope and has found solace at the bottom of an alcoholic bottle whereas Will has played the PR circus, has a new wife and they are expecting a baby. Will thinks that Francine is crazy to even entertain the fact that the note isn’t a hoax and is really linked to their missing daughter – but Francine is determined, feisty and ready to do whatever it takes to find out who wrote the note and where Autumn is – enter Lena who is adamant that she knows Autumn but is absolutely terrified of the repercussions of helping Francine.
Francine is a bit flaky at the start of the book, booze has clearly taken over her life in a coping mechanism but she comes into her own, first with Lena and then in her search for her daughter.
I Know Where She Is deals with some very harrowing story lines, covering themes of child abduction, abuse and rape. Some of the scenes were difficult to read but they were needed within the context of the story, they definitely were not gratuitous and were sensitively handled.
This book is gripping write from the outset, and whilst being a psychological thriller, this is also extremely chilling – the author’s love of horror also comes through in certain scenes. A brilliant, page-turning, gripping read!
