A CHILD MADE TO ORDER PIOTR RYCZKO PAPERBACK AMAZON £7.99
When a women’s fertility rights campaigner, Marianne Stine, mysteriously disappears, it hardly reaches the news. Only investigative journalist Viola Voss, harried by the blogger’s mother, shows any interest in finding out what happened to the young woman. Yet years pass and there is no further sign of Marianne. However, on the eve of taking up a prestigious senior post in Norway’s largest newspaper, Voss is once again reminded of Marianne’s disappearance. In fact, Voss is soon presented with a tantalising clue that not only is Marianne alive, she has a healthy young child. Part of Voss’s fascination with Marianne is because they share the same rare genetic condition that would be passed on to their children. Haunted by having lost her own child due to this hereditary disease, Voss determines – against the strong wishes of her own over-powering mother – to put her new job on hold, try to find Marianne, and an explanation. Enlisting the help of an ex-police sergeant, the clues point to a fertility clinic on the outskirts of town. But this is where Voss’s problems begin. The clinic’s claim of a 100% fertility treatment success rate is beguiling and, with her inner world in turmoil, she decides to take a risk that will force her to confront her own fears, deal with her loss and decide between right and wrong.

I would definitely recommend this if you love psychological thrillers to all crime fans. This is the best book by Sue Fortin that I have read. Two sisters both completely different. Alice is beautiful kind and a manipulative liar. Claire Tennison a solicitor is intelligent, loyal, paranoid and jealous. As a child Alice is taken on holiday by her father to America, but both never come back. Years later Alice makes contact with her family. Claire lives at her mothers house with her two daughters and her husband. When Alice returns home after been missing for years tension builds up between Claire and Alice. When Claire become suspicious of Alice, no one listens to her. I loved the nail biting tension, with two sisters, but only one truth.
