The Moon Pool by Sophie Littlefield
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Two women from very different backgrounds go to the frozen wastes of North Dakota in search of their teenage sons. They form an uneasy, slightly mistrusting alliance realising they will achieve more together than alone. The boys were working for a mining company which has a bad reputation for covering up accidents. The mothers believe their sons may have been killed in an accident – and then another story emerges. The book explores emotions; fear, worry, guilt and how the characters deal with the evolving situation in such a bleak, hostile landscape. It is a horrifying story told with tense, atmospheric drama.

If you like Sophie Littlefield you might also like to read books by Harlan Coben, M V McGrath and Lisa Scottoline.

Synopsis

The Moon Pool by Sophie Littlefield

North Dakota is like nowhere Colleen has ever seen. Vast rolling plains of silvery snow, studded with shimmering black pools, lit by occasional flares of orange light. It is a landscape both beautiful and terrible. It is the landscape that swallowed her son. Across town, another mother also searches for her missing boy. He too went missing from the oilfields where he worked. And no-one - not his employers, not the police - seems to care that he is gone. As long as they are alone, these two women will never find out the truth. But if they team up, and help each other, then maybe, just maybe, this freezing wilderness will give them back their sons.
