Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Iâm a big fan, she is so good at menace, female characters and building suspense. This is her ninth novel and she just gets better.

Comparison: Mary Higgins Clark, Barbara Vine, Hilary Norman.

If you like Carol Smith you might also like to read books by Nicci French, Hilary Norman and Mary Higgins Clark.

Synopsis

Vanishing Point by Carol Smith

When Frankie, mid-forties, sees in a passing train the unforgettable face of her long-lost love, she turns straight round and goes after him. For she, more than anyone, knows he is dead; was there when it happened, attended the inquest and later served a prison sentence for his manslaughter.

Frankie, Cristina, Cassandra, Jenny and Pippa….five women living quite separate lives except for one crucial fact. Cristina, the spoilt Brazilian ex-model; Cassie, the dignified lady of class; Jenny, who runs a fashionable eatery while raising a child on her own and Pippa, the much younger mistress, now pregnant with his twins. Each of them has devoted her life to the same duplicitous man.

Antwerp, Paris, Venice, Rio, Bath…their lives are very widespread. But when the circles begin to intersect, the only possible ending is murder.
