I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
Behind Closed Doors - Elizabeth Haynes

Scarlett, her sister, Juliette and parents are in Greece on holiday but on their last night Scarlett is snatched and not seen for another 10 years when she is 25 years old. She has had a harrowing life in the sex trade, being moved from country to country - there is no one to trust, no one to be kind, just one horrible day follows another. Her family were also peculiar. This is a very grim book, well written but could have been better with a little less police jargon and procedure which began to be a bit wearing. There were also too many characters who only seemed to appear in the police internal email. This is the first book I have read by this author and I will definitely read some of her others.
