About this ebook

I know my daughter better than I know myself and if there’s one thing I know for sure at this moment: it's that Maisie is not ok.
My ex-husband Shaun and I are still friends.
We would do anything for our beautiful little girl, Maisie.
But now Shaun has moved in with Joanne and suddenly, Maisie has a brand new family.
And there’s something not quite right about it…I know Joanne isn’t everything she says she is. Yet no-one will listen.
I need to discover what she’s hiding.
Because if I don’t, my daughter will be in terrible danger.

The most gripping psychological thriller you’ll read this year from the Kindle top five bestselling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Girl on the Train or Gone Girl, you’ll be absolutely hooked.

When, in the space of one blurb, you see phrases like "An absolutely gripping psychological thriller" and "The most gripping psychological thriller you’ll read this year," you tend to expect big things. At least I did. However, I didn't find those things in Closer. I would not call this story a psychological thriller. There are some psychological elements, but the best I would go is domestic drama with the occasional sinister bit. There are some current and serious issues tackled here, but if the point was to "grip" the reader, it certainly missed the mark with me. Unlikable characters aside, and there were plenty, most of the story was drawn out and well, rather boring, and there were odd chapters here and there that seemed out of place with the rest of the story. I got where those chapters were supposed to be going, and we do finally get to the big reveal. I suppose that's where the thriller part should've kicked in, but I already had most of it figured out and after all the lag time, it all comes together in a few abrupt pages. I should mention that there is a big twist at the end, like the last two pages of the book, but that wasn't exactly hard to see coming either, and after everything else, it was just too little, too late. I've seen many rave reviews about this book, so maybe it's just me, but this is most definitely not the most gripping anything that I've read this year.
