Publisher's Summary

I know who took my daughter. Only his mother can help me.... 

My little girl’s room is dark. Her bed is empty. I turn on her unicorn nightlight and bury my face in her pillow, my heart breaking.

I know who did this. His name is Samuel Barlow. He has pale sallow skin and red-rimmed icy-blue eyes. But no one will listen. 

As darkness falls and rain lashes against the window, there’s a knock at my door and I open it to see those same eyes staring back at me. It’s his mother and she says she can help me find my daughter.

My gut feeling says don’t trust her.

But as hopes of finding my little girl fade with each passing hour, how can I turn away?

A completely gripping and twist-packed listen from the number one best-selling author K.L. Slater. If you like Liane Moriarty and Lisa Jewell you will be totally hooked on Missing.

Good so far but…

Always love KL Slater’s books on Audible, but I was sad to see, or hear rather, that Lucy Price-Lewis wasn’t the narrator!!

Just started

I’m very disappointed that Lucy price Lewis is not the narrator for this one. I was waiting to read on my kindle until the audible version was released just for that reason. I just started so we’ll see how it goes. I know the book is gonna be amazing (I own all of KL Slaters books) she’s an amazing author. Will update when I’ve finished.


Ok, so I finally finished and gotta say that I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the others. It was good but maybe would’ve enjoyed more if I read myself rather than listening. I wasn’t a fan of the narrator.

Wow! What a mystery with so many twists

I have listened to a few K.L. Slater books and so far this is my absolute favorite! It’s full of suspense, and the character development makes you feel as if you really know the characters and you come to understand them as well.
If you like K.L. Slater books this is a must!

Entertaining

Entertaining although some of the narration was odd and often I didn’t know who was speaking. The ending was interminable! Every time I thought it had to be over there was yet another chapter (constantly inducing eye rolls), much of which was extremely repetitive, padded or added nothing and that spoiled it for me.

Great plot to keep you guessing

I really enjoyed this audiobook. I really liked all the characters and how each of the mothers were very different. I found the narration to be easy listening and overall the story was captivating.

Best book for months

This is the best I’ve listened to out my last five books. Grabbed me from the beginning and finished it over a few days. It wasn’t terrifying or scary, a few twists, although at times a bit unbelievable but an enjoyable listen. Narration was great. Worthy of a credit.

Good story spoiled by the narrator

I enjoyed the story though found it hard to have any empathy with the main character. I also hated the narration. It was extremely painful to listen to and the voice of the elderly woman sounded like an old witch. A good story spoiled by a bad narrator who made the book very depressing to listen to. Will avoid this narrator in the future.

Twisted

My family refer to me as the spoiler because I usually figure out 'who did it' in the first 10 minutes but this was a plot twist I did not see coming. one of K. L. Slater's better works.

Great concept , poorly executed

This author comes up with some brilliant plot ideas. This is no exception, with sub-plots galore to keep the story moving. However, they are unable to create remotely engaging characters and the language is so over the top as to be cringe-worthy. Add to this a narrator who must have learned their craft from watching Bold and the Beautiful and this book is likely just too over the top for lovers of psychological thrillers.

Good story

The story was good, but I found the main character to be a bit annoying. Not helped by the narrator making her seem a bit whiney. Fairly predictable but entertaining.

Wow

I’ve listened to many many of KL Slaters books as I thoroughly enjoy her stories, and this one was by far my favourite! I found it hard to switch off and I kept wanting more, there were so many twists and turns and just when you thought it was all over, Bam another! Great listen, definitely recommend.

A story of blame and obsession

The mystery Kept me interested all the time and had good twists and turns. Narrator had an easy voice though nauseous female voices pitched at a whining level for me. The story was well thought out with excellent surprises.

Slater is so talented!

Another page turner with amazing twists! I love the way Slater reviews past events which refresh my memories of who did what to who. Thoroughly recommend all her books!
