    Serve this in a tall glass with a twist or two It s that good.and I don t give out that many 5 star reviews or take the honor lightly Just plug me into a non stop connection to all future Gilly Macmillan books I m hooked.This is the story of a missing child who disappears within moments during a walk in the woods with his mother The panic weighs heavy from the get go and Macmillan is relentless in her descriptive abilities She taps into the devastation of the parents and family with such eloquence of language that you experience the rawness and are saturated in it I ve yet to come upon an author who comes close to capturing police procedures and the depth and toll of their own human encounters It was a poisonous sky the death throes of last night s weather I remember thinking that it wasn t a good night for a small boy to b...

    This book has two titles Burnt Paper Sky and What She Knew It has caused some confusion as many including me thought it was two different books by the same author Anyhow, I don t care if it has 67,562 names, I am just glad I came across it and that I read it It was a phenomenal read that I read in just a few sittings Rachel Jenner and her eight year old son, Ben and their dog are taking a walk though Bristol Park This is something they often do together Ben asks if he can go ahead a bit on his own, Rachel says yes and off he goes After a short time Rachel calls for Ben and he doesn t answer As she searches for him she starts to panic, in only moments her worst fear, any parents worst fear has happened.Ben has vanished.Immediately everyone begins to search for Ben but to no avail Police are called in and search parties are sent out When the dog comes back alone and there s still no sign of Ben everyone starts to realize that Ben has not just gotten lost somewhere in the woods Where is Ben A press conference is organized where Rachel is to appeal for help in finding Ben However, Rachel doesn t follow the script she s been given It s meant to be non threatening, to humanize the situation She feels that the words are too tame ...

    4.5 stars What an absolutely thrilling and emotional ride this book took me on I am in awe that this was GILLY MACMILLAN s debut novel as I thought this was even better than THE PERFECT GIRL WHAT SHE KNEW by GILLY MACMILLAN is a beautiful and cleverly written psychological thriller that takes you on a very emotional and apprehensive tale here of every parent s worst fear their missing child GILLY MACMILLAN delivers an impressive and descriptive story that was interesting, believable, suspenseful, heartbreaking, and compelling The story is about a missing child, Ben who vanishes during a walk in the woods with his mother, Rachel who allows him to run ahead to the swings and the search for Ben as the clock is ticking to find him before it is too late This story was interestingly told in alternating points of view of Rachel and DI Jim Clemo along with therapists reports, blogs, and various different accounts online through social media What I particularly loved about this book was that you could really feel Rachel s pain and devastation through the detailed descriptive telling of this story.I have read quite a few novels about missing children but this one really resonated with me When one of my sons was much younger he decided to go on a little adventure while visiting family in a big city without us knowing He was gone for a couple of hours with the whole neighbo...

    3.5 Stars After a bit of a slow start, Gilly McMillan s What She Knew became an engaging page turner Primarily told from the perspective of a mother who searches for her missing son, the novel s strength, I think, lies in exploring whether our ideas about who we are matches up with reality This reality isn t just about the devastation of losing ...

    Oh my gosh What an incredible novel Hard to believe this is a debut for Gilly Macmillan.Every parent s worst nightmare A missing child On a Sunday outing to a park in the woods, eight year old Ben asks to run ahead to the playground That s all it took When Rachel, Ben s mother finally gets to the clearing of the playground, he s gone The Book focuses on Rachel s pain and struggle to deal with her loss, as well as DI Jim Clemo, who heads up the investigation to find Ben The toll a missing child can have on the whole family as well as the investigative team weighs heavily I could not get over the clarity of the voice of Rachel It was as though she was sitting at the end of my sofa talking to me, telling me her tragic plight to find her son So real and convincing, you can actually feel her pain I read on my Kindle not an audio book The book brings in the role of the social media and how that can change the focus...

    Rachel lets her son Ben run ahead when they are out for a walk and he disappears Usually mystery or thrillers aren t very good, even when I try to be generous about the writing and the characters but wow I really enjoyed this one The writing was good and the characters were sympathetic I actually related to the characters and was rooting for Rachel through out the book I didn t see the ending coming and the way the story is developed it excellent because my excitement kept building up all t...

    I struggled with this book and perhaps I have read too many novels lately about missing children I made the mistake of listening to this one on audio and its not that the narrator was bad but the book seemed to drag on forever and as an audio book it just didn t work for me I didn t find this novel suspenseful and it lacked any real mystery for me There was nothing unique about this story and I kept thing something is going to bring this book back from...

    What She Knew by Gilly Macmillian is a 2016 William Morrow Paperbacks publication This is one of those harrowing stories in which a child is abducted, as the clock tick tocks along, and each moment that passes makes the situation hopeless In this case, Rachel Jenner s son, Ben, is abducted while they are out walking their dog Once the critical missing is reported, Rachel s life is upended in ways she never could have imagined and the repercussions will haunt her for a long time to come This is a fine example of what happens when a case like this one catches the attention of the press Rachel is blamed for taking her eye off her son for a short time, her family and friends endure a shocking invasion of privacy, buried secrets are revealed, and the investigation winds up in turmoil The story alternates between Rachel s POV and the head investigator, DI Jim Clemo s perspective, which is an interesting set up, since Jim s personal demons have landed him in the psychologist s office The novel is partly a police procedural, and follows Jim s investigation and all the interviews conducted, the leads that come through, and the legwork involve...

    Just now and again you come across a book that just blows your e socks off and this is just the one for me I have a few new debut authors this year that has surprised me SO much with their talent, its just Unbelievable that this is Gilly Macmillan s FIRST book My kindle says it will take around ten hours for me to read it Well, the time just flew by I also need to say, it was fantastic to know all the places in this read as it was based in Bristol where I live This is an emotive read, its an enthralling read, it touches you in places in your heart that you just cannot step back from and refuse to actually feel not only for the Mother of the missing child, but also for her ex husband, and, I have to say, the DI and the Police all surrounding this story.You can tell this author has really done her homework As each chapter passes you from Mom, to Dad, to DI and to manuscripts, phone calls, and interviews, its one hell of a journey.I really cannot rave about this book enough, I am utterly astounded that this author has just this one single book out and that she is not a long standing author with heaps of books out there on the shelves I hope I get to read many, m...

    Letting her eight her old son Ben run up ahead, Rachel expected to get to the swing and find Ben having a great time But he wasn t there, in fact he wasn t anywhere Ben is gone.From the opening chapter it is apparent that this author is firmly in charge, her writing is so confident, her pacing so perfect She takes a rather common theme in mysteries, a missing child and turns it on its head She shows the reader the cost of such tragedies, not just to the parents but to the police officers in charge of finding the child Rotating narrators we are treated to all aspects of the case, from the Mother s devastating sorrow and helplessness to the divorced Father s guilt The savage treatment of many bloggers and the insensitivity and prejudgment of the media Truly an in depth look in all directions Secrets, of course there are always revelations, suspicious people who were not where they said, whom they said Yet, I trusted this author and did not even try to go ah...
