Billy Wilkinson, 15, left his home six months ago and was never seen again. 

His parents and older brother are losing hope that they’ll ever know what happened to him.

“The Missing” is about a grieving family that still has a flicker of hope but fears it will be extinguished. 

The story is told from the mother’s viewpoint. She tries to keep her unraveling family
together. Yet she has suspicions about both her husband of 20 years and her
19 year old son.

Can the people you think you know most, and certainly love most, have secrets they are hiding?

As the
weeks and months pass with no leads, the family’s faith that
Billy will ever come home begins to fade. What if, once he left their home,
someone kidnapped him?  

What if, what if? The question that haunts them all. 

But yes, finally there is a conclusion. I didn’t figure out just who was keeping the biggest secret until the author revealed it to me.

“The Missing” will keep you guessing until the very end. 

Well-written with every piece of the puzzle finally put into its rightful place, it will satisfy the lover of suspenseful mysteries in everyone.

  1. I love mystery and suspense, this book sounds just right for me. When I find a author I like I tend to stick to him or her but I really need to expand and get away from James Patterson at least for a while.
