What She Knew is a completely addicting, riveting psychological thriller about a mother, Rachel, who lets her eight-year old son run ahead of her in a park, but then he goes missing, only a pile of his clothes left behind. The clock is ticking to find Ben alive.
I was completely gripped by this suspenseful novel, not only because the characters were well drawn, the setting vivid and the plot full of twists and turns, but because as a mother I can completely identify and see myself in this situation. The what-if that every mother experiences in this story was like a punch to the gut. An absolutely brilliant read.
