The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A seriously dark thriller, our heroine was kidnapped aged twelve and held for four years. Now, six years later, she is still trying to put her life back together. When another vanished girl reappears and two more go missing the police realise they may have a serious problem on their hands and it is up to Reeve to overcome her own trauma to save other girls from the same fate. Pacey and exciting, Norton is an expert on how captives rebuild their lives and she does an impeccable job of handling what could be quite unpleasant to read sensitively and believably but without losing any of the tension.

If you like Carla Norton you might also like to read books by Rachel Abbott, Paula Daly and Claire Kendal.

Synopsis

The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton

Reeve LeClaire was abducted when she was twelve years old and held in captivity for four years. Now, in her twenties, she has a fragile stability. With the help of her psychiatrist, she has started to build a life of independence. But she will never shake off the terror and memory of the monster she believes is behind bars. When Tilly Cavanaugh is rescued from a basement having suffered a similar experience, her parents call Reeve and ask her to help their daughter rediscover a 'normal' life. But when two more girls go missing, the police confirm that there is a serial abductor at large. Reeve knows that she alone has the knowledge which will help to find the perpetrator - but can she overcome her demons to discover the truth?
