We Can See You by Simon Kernick
A best selling author and life coach with a high profile TV show Brook Conner's life is 'on track'...until the night she arrives home to find her daughter and the daughter's nanny missing and a note left behind - 'We have your daughter, do what we say and she will be returned. Do not contact the police or deviate from orders. We will know, we can see you at all times (or words to that effect)
Before long Brook is on the run with one plan - rescue her daughter and God help anyone who gets in her way!
The story alternates between Brook's story and her being questioned by the police, so a kind of 'then and now' story. It's certainly a fast paced one and (forgive the cliché) a real page turner. There are twists and turns aplenty and a reveal that certainly caught me on the hop.
I have never read a Simon Kernick novel before this one but I guess I've got a lot of catching up to do. This is an author who can keep the reader gripped. We Can See You could quite easily become THE beach read of the summer.
