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.
