October 2015 Debut of the Month.

This riveting and perturbing thriller thoroughly turns preconceptions and thought process inside out. Lying in hospital with amnesia, Estelle realises that her baby daughter is missing, the circumstances surrounding the case are suspicious, uncertainty and apprehension rule. Estelle tells, or attempts to tell her own story as she sets out to discover the truth. I occasionally found myself teetering on the edge of frustration as I yearned to gallop through the pages to discover the ending, however Alexandra Burt expertly holds the balance of the story line, knowing exactly when to withdraw, when to release information and when to push the intrigue into freefall. Sporadic newspaper cuttings about the case force a step back from the intense intimacy of Estelle’s story, in order to review and consider. ‘Little Girl Gone’ can go one of two ways, yet the author doesn't condemn, doesn't act as judge and jury, instead her writing allows compassion and understanding to accompany the anguish and heartbreak in this sharply poignant and provocative read. ~ Liz Robinson
