Gripping, thrilling, thrilling! This was my first book I have read by Alex Sinclair and let me tell you it won’t be my last. This book was very well written. It draws you in at the very beginning and keeps your interest through to the very end. I love books that can captivate the audience and keep the momentum going the whole way through, and this book definitely does just that.
The Day I Lost You follows the story of a woman named Erika. She is with her 4 year old daughter Alice as they visit the apartment complex Alice’s father, and Erika’s ex-husband Michael, lives in to retrieve a toy that Alice had left behind from a previous visit she had with her father. While in the elevator to go up to Michael’s apartment, the elevator stops near the 7th floor, the doors get jammed partways open and the elevator lights shut off. Alice is terrified of elevators, and takes the opportunity to run from the jammed elevator and takes off into the hallway of the 7th floor through the open doors of the elevator, Erika calls her to come back but the little girl will not listen. Frantic, Erika tries to escape the elevator as well, but she is unable to squeeze in between the small gap of the jammed elevator doors. Where did Alice run off to? Why did she take off like that, instead of staying with her mom where she would be safe?
The story continues on with Erika’s escape from the elevator and the frantic and anxious search for her daughter. She is no where to be found and no one in the apartment complex has seen a little girl who appears to be alone and lost. What is going on? Erika is not sure if this was a freak accident or if someone is out to get her and kidnap her daughter. Will Erika be able to find her daughter?
From all the shocking twists and turns in the book, to the shocking revelations and character building as we read on, you will not be disappointed. If you are a fan of psychological thrillers, then this book is a must to add to your to be read list. I was so shocked at the many surprises in this book, and just wait….There is a huge revelation at the end that I DID NOT see coming. I loved it!
I was hooked from the start of this book and was unable to put it down. A great page turner of a book, that keeps you reading more and more late into the night.
