Jimmy Tucker is dying. There’s only one person he wants to tell. His daughter—Milly. But when he gets home from the hospital, she’s vanished without a trace.
The inoperable brain aneurysm deep within Jimmy’s head could burst at any time—a cough, a sneeze, or a blow to the head could kill him instantly. With the police not interested in Milly’s disappearance, Jimmy takes things into his own hands and begins to look for his only daughter. But it doesn’t take him long to realise that his daughter is not the woman he thinks she is.
As he gradually discovers Milly’s shocking private life, Jimmy enlists the help of Gareth Dawson, an ex-crook with a big heart. But Gareth can only help Jimmy up to a point.
As the pressure mounts, can Jimmy uncover the truth about Milly’s disappearance before it’s too late—for either of them?
The author literally throws you straight in to the story with this one, and I was wanting to give Jimmy, the main character a massive hug after reading the first few pages and I really warmed to him, he was a genuine character that was really well developed.
I thought it was a very well developed story, it was set at a great pace and I really enjoyed the writing style too.
The book was one I read over a couple of evenings and I found it to be one that really touched me and that was not what I was expecting from the book. It was a compelling read and this is one I was glad to have been able to read.
This is the first book that I have read by this author and it certainly won’t be my last – it is 4 stars from me for this one – highly recommended!!
