Detective India Hargreaves and her small team are called in to investigate the disappearance of five- year-old Joshua Gibson, but the investigation is taken over by the big guns from Police Headquarters when it turns out to be a kidnapping.
When the media and the lead investigator suspect Ellen of being behind the kidnapping, her fame disintegrates into a nightmare and she seems powerless to stop events spiralling out of control …
Small Sacrifices is an emotional read that easily captured my interest. I really enjoyed the plot of this novel. This story explores how people who are wealthy change. How does wealth make people look at the world. It is very interesting and made me think.
I think the characters ate really well developed. I think it was interesting to watch them go through this journey. Their five year old son is taken from them and they are cast into a dark, emotional journey.
Overall, Small Sacrifices was an interesting read. I would recommend giving it a read. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
