The Edge of Normal (Reeve Le Claire #1) by Carla Norton


From Goodreads

Reeve Le Claire was abducted when she was twelve years old and held in captivity for four years. Now, in her twenties, she has a fragile stability but with the help of her psychiatrist, she has started to build a life of independence. But she will never shake off the terror and memory of the monster she believes is behind bars.

When Tilly Cavanaugh is rescued from a basement having suffered a similar experience, her parents call Reeve to ask for her help in helping their daughter rediscover a ‘normal’ life. But it is only when two other girls go missing that the police confirm the link and that there is a serial abductor in their midst.

Reeve knows that she alone has the knowledge which will help to find the perpetrator - but can she overcome her demons to discover the truth?

My thoughts

I gave this a 3.5 stars or 7/10. This is the first in the Reeve Le Claire series. I have read the second one already and wanted to see what had happened in the first book. I was interested in the back story, I was a little disappointed that there wasn't more back story to be honest.

I enjoyed this book on the whole, but found it annoying at times when Reeve appeared to go off on her own occasionally, doing her own bit of investigative work trying to find the perpetrator of the abductions. He is a mastermind and is always one step ahead of everyone or appears to be, for reasons that become apparent as you read the book.

This read almost like it was the plot for a film and you could feel the tension at certain times. I think it would transfer very easily to the silver screen or as a TV movie.
