The Disappeared Girl by Martin J. Smith

The Disappeared GirlThe Disappeared Girl by Martin J. Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was right up my street for capturing my attention, I love stories like this.

Melissa was adopted, at 5 years of age. When she in turn had a baby herself she needed to find out her medical history.
In the turn of events though, she kept getting flashbacks of certain things that she could remember.

The thing is, the adoptive parents were so happy to find themselves able to have Melissa they asked no questions, and things were not straight forward.

I can tell you this much.....this book is not all what it seems and it had me captured between its pages from start to finish, I gasped aloud at the end of this book.

You HAVE to read it.
I was granted this book to read by Diversion Books via Net Galley




Nothing stays buried forever, especially not the past. 

Two men stand out in a crowd overlooking the Ohio River. A plane is being taken from the water where it crashed decades before. Both men helped put it there. 

Jim Christensen’s daughter, Melissa, has been troubled of late. She has dreams that feel like memories, unsettling images percolate to the surface. She remembers a terrifying past, possibly her own, from a time before she was adopted by her father. Christensen’s work as an expert in memory makes him the ideal person to help unlock his daughter’s fragile grasp on her own history. But will he want to learn the truth of where Melissa came from? Who she was before? Who might still be looking for her?

This dizzying novel of suspense takes the reader back into a dirty war and its human costs, into the fevered mind of one of its survivors, and through the crosshairs of a man desperate to keep his own history vanished.
