The Couple Next Door
Cynthia is throwing a party for her husband Graham, adults only; no children allowed.
When Anne and Marco’s babysitter called to cancel at the last minute, Anne was fine with staying at home but Marco insisted that she should come to the party.
‘Remember what the doctor said.’
Marco explains that him and Anne are just next door and that they could take the baby monitor, as well as taking it in turns to check on baby Cora, which they did.
At 1:30pm the couple retreated to their home to find the front door ajar and baby Cora gone..
Who has taken Baby Cora? Noone else knew that Marco and Anne had left her alone.
Detective Rasbach is on the case and he has his suspicions, he sees many cases like this and trust his instincts but is he right?
This book began as a typical psychological thriller, however at first I thought that the storyline had unravelled a bit too quickly for my liking.
Halfway through the book we find out what has happened to Baby Cora BUT it is not. The author leads us into a false sense of security, so when we think we figured it all out, she turns the tables on us!
I won’t give any spoilers away so you will have to read the book but I will say there are a couple of OMG moments
