REVIEW: My Sister is Missing, Carissa Ann Lynch

Friday, 17 May 2019

A twenty-year-old local mystery that has never been solved. A bone-chilling VHS tape depicting a horrific crime. Neighbors with something to hide. And a sister who is missing. Emily has to find out the truth. But is her sister Madeline the victim… or the one to blame?

My Sister is Missing, like many other books in its genre, falls down the slippery slop of ineffectual and frustrating writing; turning, what could have been a rather interesting mystery, into one in which the pay-off is deemed not worth the slog it would take to get there. For a long time, all I wanted was to read a mystery/thriller; to be entertained, to be enthralled, to give a way a few hours like a majority do with contemporary romances and their status as “beach reads”. But, after reading many that have the exact same grammatical and structural problem as My Sister is Missing, all my heart longs for now is a piece of bloody good literary fiction.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
