I've just finished this book and absolutely loved it! I couldn't put it down, even though at times it was a stressful, infuriating and anxious read. Thank you Psychologies for launching your book club with such a powerful story. Thank you Lucy Atkins for writing such an amazingly complex and intriguing story. And thank you both for encouraging me to get back into reading - I haven't read a novel since the birth of my second child 15 months ago, but once I started this I couldn't put it down and read it in about 10 days! It's encouraged me to revisit my library, to make sure that I go to bed earlier to have time to read before I fall asleep and now I now have a list of recommended reading to see me through the summer months :-)

The Missing One is a brilliant book. Like Angela I was hooked from the beginning. The theme of maternal loss ( the Orcas and the humans) was touching, (great for book club discussions) and the mystery kept me gripped until the very end. I am kind of sad that I bought it on Kindle as it's a book worth sharing. I may have to go buy another copy... Well, as you know, Lucy, I was so impressed with the book I sought you out for an interview, which is on Life Labs now. Can't wait for the next novel in 2015. Lang may yer lum reek. Jane x
