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 plains of silver snow, studded with shimmering black pools, lit by flares of orange light. This is the landscape that swallowed her son. Across town, another mother also searches for her missing boy. He too disappeared from the oilfields where he worked. And no-one seems to care that he is gone. These two women must work together to find their sons. But what they discover might destroy them both...
