Rachel Jenner and her eight year old son, Ben, are going for a walk in the woods. This is not unusual for the pair and their dog. It was a normal Sunday afternoon until Ben vanishes without a trace. Rachel becomes wild with fear when they find the dog injured and Ben's clothes in a bag. The police get involved, but time is ticking away and with each day that passes Rachel feels her sanity slipping away. After her divorce, Ben became her entire world and she knows that her life is not worth living without him in her life. When the police start digging around in Rachel's life and history Rachel herself is shocked by the truths that come out, but is it enough to prove guilt and is it enough to bring Ben home?
What She Knew is a thrilling suspense novel about a favored subject when it comes to suspense novels, a missing child. Told in alternating chapters we get a look at the story through both the eyes of Rachel and of Jim, the lead detective on the case. The tone of the story gets more and more urgent with each day that passes. The burden of finding Ben falls on Jim and he is determined to find him. But the job is not easy, especially after his girlfriend makes an epic mistake in judgement. The stress of it all is also weighing heavy on Rachel, she feels her grasp on reality slipping away. And that is where the author hooks you. You become attached both to Rachel, but also Jim. They are both good people focused on one thing - finding Ben. The author was clever in the way she unraveled the story and I found myself caught off guard. My imagination got away from me and I thought I had figured out what had happened to Ben more than once only to have the author take me down another path towards the truth. It truly kept me on my toes and I was shocked at the revelation at the end.
Bottom line - What She Knew is an enthralling suspense novel about every parent's worst nightmare. A missing child. A guaranteed way to get your heart racing!
