Misplaced by Lee Murray

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very intriguing, well written book.

Pros:

Adam's Mom is like any other Mom. She's encouraging him one evening to get off of the PC, stop playing his games and get to grip with school work. They have a good relationship, this can be seen from the conversation they had then and how he reacts throughout the book when his Mom goes missing.

She tells him she is popping out for some milk, a trip that takes only a few minutes there and back, he's to make his Dad a cup of tea when he comes home from work if she's not back in time.

This is where the story starts. It has some very good twists in it that make you think twice on 'who done it' if they done it or if she's simply just walked out of her own accord. Kept me guessing throughout.

Con:

The only little niggle that annoyed me was the relaying of the messages that Adam was typing on the PC to friends.
At the end of each messaged from either one talking the author added [[ENTER]]

It was a little off putting for me.

This didn't distract me from the actual story though just wondered why it was done that way. I know its a technical world which we live in, but it could be understood what was what I think without the benefit of this.

Stories like this happen a lot, more than we know, most turn out to be OK. But you will have to read this one to find out what happened because its not what you expect.


Dream cars have no registration plate...

One evening, Adam’s mum pops out for the milk and doesn’t come back, launching a frantic nationwide search. Yet after weeks with no leads, the television crews drift away, the police start asking hairy questions, and Adam’s dad starts seeing someone else. Adam’s life is falling apart. But then he meets Skye, who it seems has misplaced a parent too, and things start to look up. That is, until a body is found..
