I’m really liking the idea of continuing on with this Throwback Thursday theme every week. I like that these older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. My pick this week is:

My Rating: 4 Stars

From Goodreads

Your baby has been stolen by a stranger. The police won’t listen. What would you do?

Abbie Taylor shows remarkable flair in this involving and intriguing debut novel.
A young mother’s nightmare comes true… the tube doors close with her baby still on the train. Struggling as a single mother, Emma sometimes wishes that her thirteen-month-old son Ritchie would just disappear. But when, one quiet Sunday evening, Ritchie is abducted by a stranger on the London Underground, Emma is thrown into a situation worse than she could have ever imagined.
But why don’t the police seem to fully believe her story? Why would they think that she would want to hurt her own baby?
If Emma wants Richie back, it looks like she’ll have to find him herself. With the help of a stranger called Rafe, the one person who seems to believe her, she goes in search of her son. And she is determined to get him back… no matter what it takes. 

If you like psychological thrillers and mysteries I really think you’ll enjoy this book. The writing is great and there’s a pervasive feeling of dread throughout as you’re  not quite sure who’s telling the truth and how it all plays out.

Has anyone read this one? Feel free to share your thoughts and your own Throwback recommendation in the comment section:)
