Publisher's Summary

She lays her baby in his cot - the sound of his quiet breath filling the nursery as she leaves the room. Soon Claire will be fast asleep herself. She won’t hear the back door opening or the footsteps on the stairs.  

When Claire Lucas is woken by her husband asking where their baby son is, she is dazed and confused. When she follows Darren into their child’s bedroom, she hears nothing but silence. No baby cries, no cute gurgles. The only thing left in Finlay’s cot is his beloved teddy bear. Finlay has gone.  

Detective Jessie Blake rushes to the family’s modern home in the rugged Scottish Highlands. She notices that Darren avoids eye contact, and Claire seems disconnected - unable to account for the last few hours of her afternoon. Jessie knows there’s no normal response to losing a child, but something doesn’t feel right.  

Friends rally round the young family, as a search of the narrow lanes and green hills of Moncrieffe begins in earnest. And as helpers battle the wild Scottish weather, Jessie is sure that someone in the search party must know more than they’re letting on. Someone must have seen something.  

As a ghost from her own past comes back to haunt her, Jessie must put aside her own personal tragedy to save baby Finlay. Can she get the people of the small town to talk before it’s too late? 

If you love Cara Hunter, LJ Ross and Robert Bryndza, you’ll love this addictive new crime thriller from Kerry Watts. Her Missing Child will have you hooked from the start!

Do yourself a favour, buy this book

I very nearly didn't buy this book after reading a review saying the narration was whiney. I am so glad I bought it anyway .... I loved it.

wowzer

What a great story, absolutely gripped me.
The narrator was great, used accents, spoke very clearly.
The story was incredibly tense in several places, I couldn't believe how quickly it went, a positive sign of a fantastic book.
I really can't rate it high enough.

Good story but didn’t enjoy the narration.

I enjoyed this story but the narration was very stiff, whiney and irritating.
Not for me!
