When Jessica, a young Air Force drone pilot in Nevada, is tasked with launching a missile against a suspected terrorist halfway across the world, she realizes that though women and children are in the crosshairs of her screen, she has no choice but to follow orders. Ethan, a young Wall Street quant, is involved in a more bloodless connection to war when he develops an algorithm that enables his company's clients to profit by exploiting the international financial instability caused by exactly this kind of antiterrorist strike. These two are only minor players, but their actions have global implications that tear lives apart--including their own. When Jessica finds herself discharged from the service and Ethan makes an error that costs him his job, both find themselves adrift, cast out by a corrupt system and forced to take the blame for decisions they did not make.

Rachel allows her son, Ben, to run ahead of her while walking in the woods. That is the beginning of her nightmare. With her son missing and the media against her, she tries to do everything in her power to find Ben.
The author provides viewpoints from both Rachel and the lead investigator, Jim.
Nicely written debut.

Great read. I couldn't put it down. Best psychological thriller I've read in a long time.

Enjoyable book. Some loose ends that were tied up, but not satisfactorily - why was the father injured? Why was this part even included in the book? I am not sure why so much onus was put on DI Clemo's discussions with the therapist. Just a lot of loose ends, or unsatisfactory character development. But it did have a draw that kept you reading. Hopefully further books will hope the author get better at character development.

I enjoyed this, and the memories it rekindled for me of Bristol. I had ordered the large print version as there was less of a line for it, but regretted it as it's hard to attach enough gravitas to such a serious subject as a child going missing when I feel like I'm reading a book for a 8 year old. (No offence whatsoever to those for whom a large text book is useful, it's just a passing comment - maybe because it didn't have the larger pages of most large text books).
Anyway...I found this very readable (despite having to turn the pages so often!), and would recommend it.
