The Girls Who Disappeared by Claire Douglas

Twenty years after a car accident has all but been forgotten, the case is reopened by the police force, and a journalist arrives in town to make a podcast about what happened.

Four friends were heading home from a night of drinking on a rainy night on The Devil's Corridor when a person appeared in the road, and they crashed.

The only one who survived was Olivia.  The strange thing, though, is that the other three friends were not in the car, all their belongings were gone, and they have never been heard from for twenty years.

Why is the case being re-opened after all this time?

People don't want the case re-opened nor do they want Jenna, the journalist, to be digging up the past that most likely holds clues.

THE GIRLS WHO DISAPPEARED kept my interest and had some interesting characters.

The only puzzling thing was the chapters interspersed with something I wasn't really sure had to do with the murder, but oh you will find out why they are there.

This book will appeal to fans of Ms. Douglas, fans of suspense, and fans of characters with secrets. 

Lots of secrets kept and many lies.  4/5

This book was given to me by the  publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.

    1. I read another book of hers, THE COUPLE AT NO. 9, but she has many others.

      Thanks for commenting, Mystica.

  3. I don't think I've read Douglas but I'll keep this in mind. Thanks for sharing, Elizabeth.
