Book Description:
The police belonged to another world – the world they saw on the television or in the papers. Not theirs.
When two eighteen-year-old girls go missing on their gap year in Thailand, their families are thrust into the international spotlight: desperate, bereft and frantic with worry. 
Journalist Kate Waters always does everything she can to be first to the story, first with the exclusive, first to discover the truth – and this time is no exception. But she can’t help but think of her own son, who she hasn’t seen in two years since he left home to go traveling. This time it’s personal.
And as the case of the missing girls unfolds, they will all find that even this far away, danger can lie closer to home than you might think . . .

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

When I read the description of this book I was intrigued by it and I wanted to read it and find out what happened to the girls, and where was Kate’s son. I was not disappointed. The book had two good mysteries going on and eventually they intertwined and I was like whoa and then was even more intrigued to see where it was going to go from there.

The plot of the book was well done, the book was told in multiple perspectives which worked well for this story because you were getting different views of all the people involved and their side of the story. That way you are seeing what the people trying to discover what happened are feeling and then you see the perspective of the people it is happening to. The story flowed nicely and there were good twists that had you guessing how the story was going to play out.

The characters were pretty well developed, I don’t think I particularly liked anyone in the sense that I wanted to see what happened, but they all had some flaws where I was like well this is your doing so…But, you get a background on each of the characters and you know how that relates to what is going on in the story and the way the ending plays out.

The ending had a good twist that you don’t quite suspect is coming, but have a feeling that there is more to the story than what really happened and then bam you know. I won’t say what because I don’t want to give it away. The Suspect was definitely a fun and entertaining read. I would recommend it.
