Bring Her Home by David Bell

IMG_5174“It felt like one of those dreams, the kind he’d been having too often lately. In the dreams, he’d open his mouth to scream but could make no sound. And the very act of trying to force words out made his throat feel as if he’d swallowed broken glass.”

A year and a half after the tragic death of his wife, Bill is faced with another tragedy: the disappearance of his daughter, Summer and her best friend, Haley. The two girls are found days later in a city park, with Summer terribly injured and Haley pronounced dead at the scene. Bill is determined to find out what happened, and whether the girl found alive is indeed his daughter. The events that led up to the horrific crime are unclear and the question of who is responsible leads Bill to unexpected answers and unearths long held secrets.

Bring Her Home is a pretty solid crime thriller. It has plenty of twists and turns that takes the reader on a roller coaster of a ride as the truth is slowly revealed. There is a lot of action and the story moves at a fast pace with very short, quick chapters that propel the events forward. I do wish that the main character was slightly more relatable and easier to connect to, and at times I would have liked longer chapters in order to get more into the story, which is usually my preference as a reader. Overall it is an entertaining read, and if you enjoy fast paced storytelling with a lot of twists to keep you guessing, Bring Her Home is a good thriller option.
