It was just one night away. I had no idea how devastating it would be…
My sister said I deserved a break. She offered to babysit so that my husband and I could have one night away, remember who we used to be before the sleepless nights.
But the next morning my phone rings. My sister is hysterical. Mabel’s cot is empty. My little girl is gone.
I race home with a horrible sick feeling flooding my stomach. The little sleepsuits still hang on the radiator but there is no gurgling or cooing on the baby monitor – just silence.
Now the police are questioning everyone. My sister, my husband, the girls from my baby group.
I want my little girl back more than anything and I will do whatever it takes. But I have a secret… Could the darkness in my past have put my baby at risk?
A truly gripping psychological thriller of manipulation and betrayal from bestselling author Jess Ryder. The Night Away will have you hooked until the final devastating revelation. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train or The Woman in the Window.
The Night Away is a twisty psychological thriller that is a great book to escape into and forget about what is going on out in the world for a few hours. It is a gripping page turner that captures your attention right off the bat and pulls you into the story.
Jess Ryder puts her own spin on a child kidnapping story which sees a well needed night away for couple Amber and George, become their worst nightmare when their seven month old baby girl Mabel is kidnapped whilst in Amber’s sisters care.
Why becomes the focus and as the tension and suspense builds up along the way, you think you know where it is all leading, only for Jess Ryder to pull out the rug from underneath you to take it in a completely different direction! I do love when this happens in a book.
The only thing I did find, was nearly every character was unlikable. Whether that was intentional or not, I just could not sympathise with Amber and George. Ruby and baby Mabel were the only ones I felt anything for, but in saying all this, each has been well written in their role.
The Night Away is a tense psychological thriller where secrets long buried rise to the surface and as each are revealed, brings you closer to the truth. It is a slow build to start, but as you get further along the pace does pick up. This is another great addition to Jess Ryder’s bibliography and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for her reader’s next.
