Missing Pieces by Tim Weaver – Book Review

PUBLISHERS BLURB 

Rebekah Murphy knows too much. . .

She knows she’s alone on an abandoned island with a killer on her trail. 

She knows that to get home to her children, she must survive long enough to understand why this is happening. 

She knows someone tried to kill her for a secret.

What she doesn’t know is what that secret is . . .

Detective Frank Travis doesn’t know enough . . .

He doesn’t know where to find Louise Mason. He doesn’t know how and why she vanished into thin air three months ago. He doesn’t know the identity of the man last seen talking to her. Not yet.

But what he does know it that he’s a week away from retirement — and if he doesn’t find out where Louise went, no one will. 

What neither Rebekah nor Detective Travis realise is that each holds a missing piece from the same puzzle — and it will cost them everything they love to finally solve it . . .

MY REVIEW 

Rebekah Murphy is stranded on Crow Island, she’s in a n area ravaged by a hurricane with few facilities left.

Why is she stranded? Who is it that wants her dead?

All will become clear……eventually

The story is told from various perspectives and timelines, from Rebekah past and present which gradually reveals how she has ended up on Crow Island, and from Detective Travis and his search for a missing artist. 

Are these cases linked?

This is a thriller, absolutely packed with tension and the descriptions of the island and its weather feels almost claustrophobic adding a nail biting edge to the story. With lots of twists, a feeling of impending danger throughout this is gripping from start to finish. I need a lay down now.! Brilliant storytelling from Mr Weaver.

Thank you to Chrissie at Michal Joseph for the opportunity to be part of this blog tour and for an ARC of Missing Pieces.

NOT book related but something genius I have to share lol…..

Hi, something a bit different today (not book related)….

A neighbour of mine has invented this genius product, it’s a magnetic draught excluding letterbox…stay with me people lol..it’s genius and looks great.

Here is the official blurb….

Magnetic letterbox draught excluder

High quality, easy to fit and proven to work!

Reduces cost of bills, by preventing heat loss through letterboxes

Unlike other draught excluders, Magflap’s magnetic closing doesn’t let the heat out or the cold in.

Internal or external fit, the dimensions are internal aperture 70mm x 290mm, and external measurements (outer edges) 100mmx 341mm

Pure genius 

it comes in a range of colours too, black, silver and a gold/brass colour. Simple to fit, even for a novice diy-er. Just a couple of holes needed.

This is the manufacturers website for more details
