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.

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.

K.L. Slater keeps you guessing to the end & the end is always satisfying. Great narration. Highly recommended.

Annoying narrator

Bratty voice for Ivy and masculine voice for Josie :/ it's really off putting so i won't be able to finish this book unfortunately.

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.

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.

Weak story and hard to listen to.

If you love hysterical screaming at everyone for 7 hours this is the book for you.

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!
