Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

#CrimeThriller with an intriguing difference – The Secret Voices by MJ White – #BlogTour

My Review:

This is a book I just couldn't miss,
One written by an author I've previously read -with a new twist!
A crime thriller with a heroine with an unexpected gift
Will it enable to give this case a new lift?

Eight year old Hannah Perry walked home from school
Walking alone, maybe no quite so cool!
She never gets home, just disappears
Will this all end with nothing but tears?

Cryptic notes and the child's things
Taunts and danger, no joy they bring.
Then Dr Cora Lael volunteers to try
Seeing if they'll let her help when they know how and why.

Cora's gift could be just what they need
To ensure that at solving the case they'll succeed.
Scepticism, disbelief and doubt, too,
Will all be experience before the story is through.

Such a great read, with that unique twist
Make this a story that's not to be missed.
The first of a new series, I'm happy to discover - 
I can't wait to read the sequels and any other!

I thoroughly enjoyed this intriguing book
And highly recommend you give it a look.
For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
A very different read and this is my honest review.

Synopsis:

They said they’d keep me safe.

They said, ‘It’s okay, Hannah. You know you can trust me.’

They lied.

When eight-year-old Hannah Perry goes missing in the small Suffolk village of St Just, the community is rocked. Heading up the investigation is Acting DS Rob Minshull, but he’s out of his depth in a case that seems to mirror the disappearance of a young boy, seven years ago. That search ended in unimaginable tragedy…and Minshull is praying that history won’t be repeated.

But with an investigation full of dead ends, and a kidnapper taunting the police with sinister deliveries of Hannah’s belongings and cryptic notes, the young girl’s life hangs perilously in danger.

Until Dr Cora Lael enters the picture. A psychologist with a unique ability, Cora’s rare gift allows her to sense emotions attached to discarded objects. When she is shown the first of Hannah’s belongings, she hears the child’s piercing scream.

With few leads on the case, could Cora prove Hannah’s only hope? And as time runs out, can they find Hannah before history repeats itself…?

A twisty, original and utterly gripping detective thriller that fans of James Oswald and LJ Ross will love. Don’t miss the crime thriller debut from the bestselling women’s fiction author, Miranda Dickinson.
