I am super excited to share my review with you today for All The Dangerous Things by Stacey Willingham….Which is out now.
Today is day 364.
364 days since my last night of sleep.
364 days since my son, Mason, was taken from his bed.
The police have stopped looking. My husband wants me to move on.
But I need to keep his story alive.
Someone knows what happened to my son.
And I’m going to find them.
It’s been a year since Isabelle Drake’s son, Mason, disappeared from his bedroom. Since then, she hasn’t had a full night of sleep. Everyone else has moved on – the detectives, the press, her husband – but she can’t rest until she knows the truth.
Teaming up with true crime podcaster Waylon Spencer, Isabelle investigates her son’s case. But Waylon has motives of his own and as long-forgotten memories of Isabelle’s past resurface, doubt begins to cloud her sleepless nights.
What happened to Mason Drake?
What if the past is better left buried?
First of all I have to ask the question….Why have I never read this author before?! With an OMFG opening which I saw in a Facebook book group. I knew right then I had to read this book! Then I found out the title and saw the cover. OH MY GOD this book was just telling me I had to read it. So me being me went into this without reading the blurb. WOW what a book!
The author sure knows how to grab your attention from the start and didn’t let me go until the very last page. Be prepared not to get anything done until you’ve finished it….please don’t say I didn’t warn you. I found myself totally wrapped up in this unputdownable engrossing read.
Imagine your son disappearing from his bedroom….This is what happens to Isabelle Drake’s son, Mason. It has been a year and she hasn’t slept properly since it happened. She teams up with true crime podcaster Waylon Spencer, to investigate her son’s case.
We follow a story that alternates from her childhood and the present which gives us some strong characterisation of Isabelle.Being a mother myself I could really empathize with her.The more I read the more I got to know her and the more the story unraveled. It is full of twists and turns and will keep you guessing until the end. All The Dangerous Things is well and truly captivating. Now I need to go and read Stacey’s debut A Flicker In The Dark.
Massive thank you to Harper Collins for an advanced reader’s copy. All thoughts are my own and not biased in anyway.
