Home is where the harm is

When Estelle’s baby daughter is taken from her cot, she doesn’t report her missing.

Days later, Estelle is found in a wrecked car, with a wound to her head and no memory.

Estelle knows she holds the key to what happened that night but what she doesn’t know is whether she was responsible.


This is Alexandra Burt’s first novel, and I believe that she is up on top with all the rest of the psychological thriller writers. Estelle’s husband Jack was unpredictable in many ways. When baby Mia is born she cries all the time with colic. Jack has to work a way from home for a few weeks, but while he gone, seven-month-old baby Mia disappears.  Estelle Paradise failed to contact the police to tell them that her baby daughter has been taken from her cot in Brooklyn, NY.  Details were released that Estelle had critical head injuries as her car went down the ravine. It appears that Estelle Paradise can not remember anything about the crash or day her baby Mia disappeared. Estelle has been put in psychiatric care where she receives help her try to remember what happened the day Mia disappeared. A twist, gripping read that is impossible to put down.
