Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* The Falkland Islands makes for an unusual setting in this twisty tale of missing children. Catrin Quinn hasn't been the same since her two children died while in the care of her best friend, Rachel. It was an accidental death, but it cost Catrin not only her daughters but also her husband, Ben, and her friendship with Rachel. Catrin's former lover, Callen, feels helpless; he's still in love with Catrin but not sure how to reach her, and he, too, has his own psychic wounds: PTSD, a holdover from the Falklands War. When a young boy goes missing, the local police chief is hesitant to blame locals and wants to protect the tourism trade. But he is the third child to go missing in about a year. Then a fourth child disappears Rachel's youngest boy and Catrin becomes the chief suspect. A pod of beached whales adds another powerful layer of horror to the story, and the proposed plan to euthanize the whales is not one that will please animal activists. Each of the main characters has a strong and compelling voice; the story unfolds in sections, each from the point of view of a different character, which adds texture and depth to what is a suspenseful and psychologically rich thriller, much in the mold of Tana French's The Secret Place (2014). Sharon Bolton also writes as S. J. Bolton.--Alesi, Stacy Copyright 2015 Booklist"
