Review

I quite enjoyed reading this novel. It has been a long time since I read a police procedural, so I was really looking forward to reading this novel and I am so happy The Forgotten didn’t disappoint me.

I would say the book actually gripped me after the third body was found, before that it had my attention but the book wasn’t what I would say gripping… But after the third body was found this book actually became an absolute page turner. New twists and turns came hurling at me from all directions and I was always at the edge of my seat, till the very climax scene.

Another thing that I loved about this book was Helen’s character. She was such strong, brave and determined woman.

I would say I am a wee bit dissatisfied with the part before the third body was discovered. I wished that it had more twists and turns and it had been a little more gripping. Other than this I don’t have any complains with the book and I would love to recommend this book to all Crime fiction readers out there.
