A missing husband. Mysterious calls. And the biggest lie of them all.

Will and Amanda Thorne are living the dream until, one day, their phone rings. Within 24 hours, Will is missing and Amanda’s world is shattered. Who was on the phone? Where has Will gone?

Amanda is determined to find her husband and is drawn into a world of drug dealers, criminal masterminds and broken promises.

The Review

Amanda Thorne’s husband goes missing and even with assistance from the police, they’re all struggling to figure out the reason why he’s disappeared. Her mother and ex-boyfriend (who is part of the investigation) believe Will was (or is it is?) a bad guy – they just can’t find an ounce of gratitude for the man – but surely his disappearance is an act of abduction?

Using her skills as a computer-wiz, Amanda tries to find out as much about Will’s disappearance as she can. Her past exploits lie within the Dark Web, a part of the Internet that has no bounds – legally or morally – this place can do wonderful things! From a fellow computer-loving; coding geek, I loved reading about Amanda’s website design business and how she used her computer knowledge to help with the search. It’s not every day you read about a character that has a similar job to yourself, more girls should get into coding (exclude the slight sexism).

For the duration of the novel you’re trying to figure out why Will has gone missing. However, you’re taken on many unexpected journeys to the solution because things pop up and make you question what you think. Amanda receives some unwelcome signs: firstly, the unexplained “wrong number” phone call and secondly, the disconcerning message on her car – who is leaving these messages? I will admit that I really didn’t know why he went missing and more importantly, if they’d ever find him.

Wrong Number is the first in the series, so I’m keen to read Last Witness, book number two! Here’s a glimpse:

“McCallister’s world is one of seedy nightclubs, drug deals and beautiful women, but he is a hard man to get close to. As Amanda gets deeper and deeper into his dangerous world, what secrets from the past will come back to haunt her, and will she be able to protect the last witness to the truth?”
