Icelandic sisters Áróra and Ísafold live in different countries and aren‘t on speaking terms, but when their mother loses contact with Ísafold, Áróra reluctantly returns to Iceland to find her sister. But she soon realizes that her sister isn’t avoiding her … she has disappeared, without trace.
As she confronts Ísafold’s abusive, drug-dealing boyfriend Björn, and begins to probe her sister’s reclusive neighbours – who have their own reasons for staying out of sight – Áróra is led into an ever-darker web of intrigue and manipulation.
Baffled by the conflicting details of her sister’s life, and blinded by the shiveringly bright midnight sun of the Icelandic summer, Áróra enlists the help of police officer Daníel, as she tries to track her sister’s movements, and begins to tail Björn – but she isn’t the only one watching…
I found this a good paced crime thriller, as the reader you can really feel the tension build. I liked the sound of the plot, I felt as though it really lived up to expectations, and I liked that the story is set in Iceland, this is a place I have always dreamt about going to but also I don’t think I have read a book that is set there. I found this story chilling and intense but also addictive, like I didn’t want to put it down and when I did I was thinking about it. The story is about two sisters that lead very different lives these days, when one goes missing, it is up to the other sister to find out what has happened? everyone is a suspect in her eyes but what really did happen to her sister and will she be safe herself? this is book one in the Arora Investigation series and I look forward to reading the next one.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
