Nicci French's Losing You covers several troubled hours in East Anglia. This is the ninth book from the writing partnership of husband and wife Sean French and Nicci Gerrard, and they have mastered suspense, with the action of Losing You crammed into a single day. The heart pounds from the first page. Written in the first person, this is the anxious voice of Nina Landry, mother of two, teacher, owner of an excitable dog and separated from her husband.

I have read a few Nicci French books previously and this one doesn’t rank with the best of them. In a story that occurs within a single day, Nicci French gives us characters to care about and a race against time plot.

I have read a few Nicci French books previously and this one doesn’t rank with the best of them. Lost teen with no reason to run and a rubbish police force. There was lots of descriptive padding which made it drag. I was reminded of the way I used to feel reading Ken Follett thrillers.

I always approach thrillers with caution. Rarely do I read one in which I find that the characters and plot are equally strong, but Losing You gets everything right. Nina is celebrating her 40th birthday and about to leave her Sandling Island home (60 miles from London) with her teenage daughter, her 7 year old son and her new boyfriend. All of them have been looking forward to a Christmas vacation in Florida. But her daughter, Charlie, who has planned what turns out to be an unwelcome surprise party for her is, nowhere to be found. When Nina calls the local police, they suggest patience. Despite evidence to the contrary, Nina knows her daughter has not run away. In a story that occurs within a single day, Nicci French gives us characters to care about and a race against time plot. I was reminded of the way I used to feel reading Ken Follett thrillers. Remember the books he used to write before he switched to those door stop size historical novels? Sigh.

Prepare to not do anything else until you finish this book. A teenaged daughter has disappeared and the police are not doing much. That leaves it all up to the mom who knows for sure someone has nabbed her daughter.

I found the beginning sample interesting which is why I bought this book. Unfortunately the story quickly becomes boring. The entire first half of the book is just the main character coming to the realization that her daughter is missing, contacting and being interviewed by the police who do nothing the entire story and running around asking people if they know anything and then reporting all she finds back to the police who continue to do nothing. Oh, and there is also a surprise party in the beginning that seems out of place and drags on and on. It was clearly a plot device to introduce a lot of possible suspects but these possible suspects are not developed throughout the book so I didn't find it very natural or effective. There really was no tension for me. I thought the main character would get threats herself (she doesn't) or that there would be tension building scenes with possible suspects but there weren't. In a good thriller there are well developed red herrings and suspects with clues that point to them but also work in the story. French does not use many false clues and the ones she does have no place within the story other than being introduced to try to distract the reader and then quickly dropped again.
There is one exciting plot development mid-story and then the book returns to being dull. I also found the ending was both rather unbelievable and dragged on too long. I didn't think the characters were developed in a consistent manner and I didn't always find that their reactions to things were very believable at all. I can't go into detail about most of these but, for instance, I didn't understand why the main character would feel it was perfectly safe to send her son off to stay with various men who could have snatched her daughter but apparently found it easy to suspect her ex husband of sexually abusing their daughter though nowhere in the story does it say he had ever done anything while they were married or after to indicate sexual abuse other than the fact that he dotes on her and some emails saying their daughter is beautiful and he is proud of her which for some reason we are supposed to find creepy.
What made the whole story even worse was that the ending was both unsatisfying and unbelievable. There is not really any explanation for why the villain did what they did other than a very superficial one . We don't learn much at all about the villain and why they were so messed up or what they were thinking and there were not really many clues in the book that made us go "oh of course, it makes sense that it is so and so!" The villain could have easily been anyone French chose because the story does not have a strong plot. The motivations of why the kidnapper acts in the manner they do was unbelievable as well.
Mr.Bean
Have just found the Nicci French books, and they're great.
Ballagar
With masterful twists and turns French has produced another book you do not want to put down. The characters are average Brits who find thenselves trapped in extraordinary suspense. If you like PD James, Priscilla Masters,and others in the field of psychological suspense, this book is a winner. I highlighy recommend it.
Deeroman
I found it very repetitive all the way through. Very disappointed as I have always loved Nicci French's books. The book was about Nina running around looking everywhere for Charlie. Unfortunately not much of interest happened during her search. I was very relieved when she eventually found her. Extremely boring!
Hatе&love
Never disappointing cannot put down books! Keeps you on edge and anxious to see what happens next. I recommend these to any mystery lover!
Strong character - pathos
