IAN RANKIN: 'Lesley Thomson is a class above, and A Kind of Vanishing is a novel to treasure.' GUARDIAN: 'Thomson skilfully evokes the era and the slow-moving quality of childhood summers, suggesting the menace lurking just beyond the vision of her young protagonists. A study of memory and guilt with several twists.' SCOTT PACK: 'A thoughtful, well-observed story about families and relationships and what happens to both when a tragedy occurs. It reminded me of Kate Atkinson. Thomson is particularly good at capturing the minutiae of childhood as well as the secrets, the lies, the make believe, the jealousies and spitefulness, the confusion and wonder of being nine years old.' BOOK AFTER BOOK: 'Lesley Thomson's engaging writing style skilfully explores the obsession and the sense of guilt, hope and despair, trust and mistrust that will fill the lives of all the people who once knew the girl who disappeared. A masterful exploration of human feelings that is paired with an equally masterful description of the settings that form the background to this gripping story. Full of unexpected twists, this is a crime story that will leave you wondering until the end whether a crime has, in fact, been committed at all.' SHOTSMAG: 'Such is the vividness of the descriptions of the location in this well structured and well written novel that I want to get the next train down...just when one thinks one can guess where it is leading, it switches, and the conclusion is a tense and gripping one. On the edge of my seat? No way - I was cowering under it.' THE PARKINSON: 'Skilfully lays the foundations in the earlier chapters for what is to come. Each layer of the plot is carefully interwoven with the thoughts, wishes and desires of the main characters. Years pass culminating in the explosion of a shocking truth. If you enjoy a good thriller with more twists and turns than a cork screw, I recommend it.' CANDIS MAGAZINE: 'Complex, disturbing and surprising...the sort of book where you simply have to completely rethink what you thought was going to happen - before sleeping with the lights on.' THE ARGUS: 'The characterisation is particularly excellent...A sensitively written story, evocatively described, this is also an unusual thriller in that it easily bears a second reading.' ABBEY'S BOOKSHOP: 'There is a touch of Susan Hill or Ruth Rendell in her (Barbara Vine) gothic mode here. Very well written.'


From the author of acclaimed thriller 'The Detective's Daughter'

A spellbinding mystery of obsession and guilt, this is also the poignant story of what happens to those left behind when a child vanishes without trace. It is the summer of 1968, the day Senator Robert Kennedy is shot. Two nine-year-old girls are playing hide and seek in the ruins of a deserted village. Alice has discovered a secret about Eleanor Ramsay's mother, and is taunting the other girl. When it is Eleanor's turn to hide, Alice disappears. Years later, an extraordinary turn of events opens up shocking truths for the Ramsay family and all who knew the missing girl.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing... 13. Juli 2013
Von Catherine - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I was excited to receive this book in the mail with the international stamp from across the pond. The reviews so far were positive if tepid.

I found the book disappointing because I too enjoy British suspense and mystery writing for the most part (I cut my teeth on Agatha Christie when I was 9). This book has some moments of suspense but the answer was in the wind from a quarter of the way through, and the book was about three times as long as it needed to be. It's a garden variety mystery novel written by someone who doesn't want to go too near her subjects or her subject matter, so she fills in page after page with descriptive repeat after descriptive repeat. You hear again and again about the day the little girl went missing, though nothing is gained in the retelling. You hear again and again about what the rich family was like, even though it was boring information the first time. I suspect that the author is very much like that family: ignores the big issues by focusing on the little ones, to paraphrase.

There is a quantity of good insight into the angst and struggles of childhood (and adulthood, though we see this from a much greater distance in almost every case), but again the same could have been done in a LOT fewer pages. Ironically, the story COULD have been expanded in a any number of ways to make it WORTH the 330 pages. The simplest way would have been to step right up to the characters, prick them slightly, and then write about the blood and pus that came out, if you'll forgive the graphic image. Regrettably, that was never done.

Early in the read, I took the book on a fishing expedition and accidentally dropped it in the river. I was distressed because I'd just begun reading it, but could have saved myself the upset had I known the book was already all wet. One unqualified compliment I have is that the cover and the pages are made from quality stuff; though the book dried a little puffy, the cover and the pages did not stick together or suffer in any way.

Unusual plot which I enjoyed - kept you guessing to the end. A lot of descriptive details but worth reading on.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Another good British novel 24. Juni 2012
Von Renata - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I like reading British suspense, contemporary fiction novels. I find them all compelling, with profound characters and incredible detailed descriptions of places, events and people.

This is another great example of that tradition. Although the main mystery here is easy to find out, there's a whole atmosphere so full of anxiety and expectancy that keep you guessing until the end.

I recommend this book for all fans of British novelists like Ruth Rendell, Amanda Coe, Camilla Way and many others.
