Missing Pieces by Tim Weaver

Missing Pieces was the fastest paced thriller I have read this year. Despite it chunky size at 500 pages, I haven't whizzed through a book this quickly in ages, it was that gripping. Read on for my full review.


Missing Pieces starts with Rebekah, she is on an island that appears to be deserted, she is hurt and she doesn't know where her brother is. We have no idea how she got there and where she is, but we know she is in danger. She knows too much, but what that is, even she doesn't know. Detective Frank Travis on the other hand needs to know more. A Louise Mason vanished into thin air and with his retirement coming up in one week, if he doesn't find her, no one will.

Wow talk about keeping your reader on their toes and constantly wanting more information. Tim gives you just enough in each chapter leaving you wanting more. The chapters flick back and forth between Rebekah on the island and trying to survive to the events that led up to her going to the island. We also have Detective Frank's point of view with the mysterious disappearance of Louise. So much going on and the continuous need to read one more chapter.

This was fantastically put together and so clever how all the 'missing pieces' fell into place. Tim created a constantly tense and fraught atmosphere throughout the book. I was not aware of my surroundings whilst reading and my eyes must have been bugging out of my head more times than I can count. 

Gripping, tense and addictive. Thoroughly enjoyed Missing Pieces.
