Boy, 9, Missing by Nic Joseph

Book blurb…

A reporter must confront his family’s dark past and his brother’s long unsolved murder, as his father again becomes the suspect in a disappearance.

Twenty-three years ago, at a small dinner party in a Chicago suburb, Francis Scroll’s nine-year- old brother, Lucas, was found floating facedown in his parents’ bathtub. Lucas’s friend Sam is the only person who can reveal the truth, but he is unable—or unwilling—to speak, and Lucas’s death is ruled a tragic accident

Francis is forced to confront the past he buried long ago when Sam’s own nine-year-old son goes missing, and all the evidence points to Francis’s vengeful father as the prime suspect. In order to save the life of a young boy, Francis must unearth the truth about what happened the night his brother died.

My thoughts…

Totally absorbing. This story will keep you both engaged and intrigued as you join Francis on his desperate journey to find a missing boy, especially with the knowledge that his father is under suspicion.

This is a debut novel for Nic Joseph and he’s delivered a complex plot that riveted me to the pages right to the surprise twist at the end. (I didn’t see that coming!)

The journey Francis takes in order to search for the missing boy is one fraught with secrets and lies, danger, and loads of emotional baggage.

  1. Thank god you are back!! Another great book to add to the TBR list! I can’t get over the amount of great debut novels I’ve read recently. I hope they can keep up the momentum in the future.

      Thanks Janine it’s nice to know I was missed. The thing about debut novels is that they increase our tbr list because we have to keep reading their releases every year to make sure they keep writing.


I hope you found my review helpful
