I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
An estranged father’s weekend with his beloved five-year-old daughter turns into a nightmare when she gets into the lift of a city centre tower block and goes down without him. She vanishes without a trace.
It sets off a race against time, and a nationwide manhunt, to find her. As the police investigation closes in, suspicion falls on those closest to her – with devastating consequences.
Daddy Dearest is a terrifying story of love, obsession and psychological meltdown.
What did I think?
‘Daddy Dearest’ hugely surprised me with this and the main reason is because in the beginning it just seemed very typical. It didn’t instantly hook me and that’s really the only reason why this isn’t a four heart review. That’s not to say it didn’t pick up quickly, it just took a little longer than I would have liked.
Southern didn’t take long before he took the book into a dark place that made me stop to take catch my breath. There were times in the book where things got tense quickly and you were holding your breath on behalf of the characters. It got my heart racing and made me want to continue reading it.
I loved ‘Daddy Dearest’ and can say that Paul Southern has done a fantastic job with it, it’s just a shame about the beginning unfortunately.
