The Abduction of Mary Rose: 2nd Edition 2020 (English Edition) Kindle版
The novel is exceptional in writing, in plotting, and in characterization. As always, gripping mystery escalates while plot develops. Chills crawled over my spine when I was sinking into the brilliantly written memorable descriptions.
I was not reading; I was living the story of 28-year-old Naomi, who on the day of her mother's funeral discovered that she was adopted. Later she became aware of that her birth mother, Mary Rose, was abducted, brutally raped and left to die. Naomi was a miracle child who was born while her mother was in a coma. When Naomi knew her birth story and that Mary Rose's killer was never found, she pledged to avenge her death.
The novel is so fascinating I could not put the book down. It is so sinister, mysterious and real from the first pages to the end that I did not feel the time; I was absorbed into the story because I cared about Naomi and other major as well as minor characters that are vividly brought to life by a talented writer.
I highly recommend "The Abduction of Mary Rose" because this remarkable novel may compete with the works of the most distinguished authors.

Naomi Waters finds out that the woman who she thought was her mother had adopted her when she died of cancer & after researching for a while Naomi discovers she was born to a woman who was in a coma following a brutal rape.
She sets about finding her mother's killer (her father) and with the help of her mother's long time lawyer and one of her mom's old school friends she eventually tracks him down.
The ending is quite good although the final few pages in this story are a little too sickly sweet where everyone lives happily ever after, that aside this is a very good thriller and well worth the small cost of the download.
I did enjoy the book but to be honest you could see how this was going to turn relatively early on so for me there was no shocks or surprises to keep me guessing up until the end. Having said that, I thought that the pace of the story was moved along very swiftly but having read other reviews about this book and the author I think the speed of it was actually due to the fact that it was too short. Personally, I think it could have been stretched out more, perhaps with flashbacks to the past and Mary Rose herself, so that we could actually get to know more about her before the rape incident rather than just the name on the cover of the book.
It is definitely worth reading and can definitely think of worse books to spend time and money on when making a choice for a holiday read.
