Book Review 📱

The Red Herring by  R.G. Link 



Description…. 

Meet William Miller. On the outside, he seems like an ordinary 20-something private investigator with a few scars, like we all have. But look beneath the surface and you’ll see the turmoil of a boy abandoned by his father and a man now struggling to run from the demons he thought he had left in the past.

Meet Natalie Haynesworth. She’s smart, pretty, popular – everything a parent dreams their teenager will be. But Natalie has a secret that nobody knows until she is reported missing. Her mother hires William to find her, no matter what. But what he discovers is more sinister than could be imagined.

Don’t be fooled. All isn’t as it seems to be.

My Review …… 
Love a good mystery, and this one was no exception. 
William is a P.I (private investigator) an incident at the beginning of the book had turned Will into a bit of a recluse. He’s not doing well, he has flashbacks of the event as well as flashbacks of his time in the services….. 
This book had me hooked after only a few pages, I felt Will’s struggle to stay focused, he was prone to panic attacks and really felt he wasn’t the best person for the job. But listening to Natalie’s mother, he felt he had to try and look into it. 
Will hits brick wall after brick wall, none of her friends know where she is, the boyfriend has no clue, even the drug dealer she knew didn’t know anything, Natalie just couldn’t disappear without a trace, could she? Digging further Will can’t help feeling something is missing, but time is running out!! 
We get to see a lot of William’s past, it’s definitely shaped him into the man he is today. It was helpful to see those moments, it helped me connect with the main character. 
And when Natalie’s body is found, you’d think the case was closed? But Will couldn’t leave it alone, so he dug a little deeper, and things got darker, a lot darker ….. 
It’s very well written. And the ending? Well I was surprised. But to find out why, you’ll have to read the book.

More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK.
