The Suspect is the third novel in the Kate Walters Series, having previously read The Widow I was eager to see what Baron had come up with next and this proved to live up to the previous book.
In the Suspect Two English girls have gone missing while travelling in Thailand on their gap year, and Kate is eager to cover the story as her own son is also travelling – it’s clear that there isn’t much contact between the rogue son and his family and as the book unfolds Kate’s personal connection takes centre stage
The narrative comes from three points of view ‘The Reporter” “The Mother” & “The Detective” and each is beautifully bought to life. There are many twists and turns as the plot develops and each leaves you gripped, desperate to find out the truth of what happened to the girls.
I loved the paradox of Kate being both mother and reporter and how her role changes througout the story.
Barton is definately becoming a master of her genre.
