The Girl Who Disappeared Twice, by Andrea Kane
★ ★ Not for me, but I might recommend this to someone else.
I don’t usually go for detective/forensic thrillers. They tend to feel either far-fetched or way too real for my taste. However, I’ve heard great things about Andrea Kane and decided to give this book a chance. I’m rating this two stars because the characters felt a bit cliche to me and I saw the ‘twist’ coming from a mile away — by that, I mean within the first three chapters. The red herrings felt forced and oddly disconnected at times.
Judge Hope Willis has a dark past. Her twin sister was kidnapped when they were children and now all these years later Hope’s own daughter has disappeared. Hope, her husband, and the detectives can’t help but wonder if history is repeating itself in a twisted way. In a frantic search for Hope’s daughter, secrets are unveiled, questions arise, and it seems like everyone could be a suspect.
My main issue with this book is how it jumped all over the place. It was hard to connect with any of the characters and their backstories, and there are a LOT of characters. The detectives, investigators, and the psychic all felt a bit caricature-like and predictable. The suspense seemed to be built on a few common mystery tropes, like the race against the clock, a look-alike villain, and cliche secrets about the husband that come to light. This book just wasn’t for me.
