I received an advanced readers copy of this book from Witness Impulse via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
I enjoy a good mystery every now and again and from the synopsis this one sounded like it would fit the bill. A story about a six year old girl who disappears from her dance class with all fingers pointing towards her father who also happens to be a cop. Who can he turn to to help find his beloved daughter when nobody is looking any farther than him? Enter Dr. Clare Hart and the journey begins.
This book is filled with twists, turns, corruption, murder and deception on every page. For readers that like a story that follows many trails in the search for answers, they will surely enjoy it. I liked the story and the fact that it takes place in Africa but I did have a few issues with it.
First of all, there were so many characters in the story that it was hard to keep them all straight. Just when I thought I finally had them all figured out another character would be introduced. This did distract me from the story and it did impact my enjoyment. With this genre I like to try and figure out the mystery before it is revealed but with so many characters it was difficult to keep anything straight. Also, there seemed to be a few stories going on at once. Perhaps this was intentional to throw the reader off the trail but I felt it just made it a little too busy.
In the end I liked the book and thoroughly enjoyed reading about Cape Town but the numerous characters made it too distracting to love.
