It is funny how the publishing world seems to work in cycles. For ages every book seemed to be about vampires then it moved on to dystopian future fantasies. Now most of the books worth reading are in the psychological thriller genre and B A Paris has really made this category her own. This is her third novel with a twist and it definitely doesn’t disappoint.
Twelve years ago Finn was returning from a trip to France with his girlfriend Layla. They stopped at a remote service area for a toilet break and when Finn had returned to the car Layla had just vanished. Despite lengthy investigations both in France and the UK she had just disappeared without a trace.
Now that Finn is living with Layla’s sister Ellen and preparing for their wedding some strange things have started happening. Little Russian dolls have begun appearing in the oddest places and this was significant only to Ellen and Layla as children. Could she still be alive…?
Bring Me Back is the kind of book that you need to put everything else on hold for – once you start reading you will need to find out the truth.
