Day 11 – All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda


All The Missing Girls is published by Corvus on 2 February 2017 and is available to buy here

It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared without trace. Then a letter from her father arrives – ‘I need to talk to you. That girl. I saw that girl.’ Has her father’s dementia worsened, or has he really seen Corinne? Returning home, Nicolette must finally face what happened on that terrible night all those years ago.

Then, another young woman goes missing, almost to the day of the anniversary of when Corinne vanished. And like ten years ago, the whole town is a suspect.

Told backwards – Day 15 to Day 1 – Nicolette works to unravel the truth, revealing shocking secrets about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne.

Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls is a brilliantly plotted debut thriller that will leave you breathless.

My thoughts

A story told backwards! We start at the end. Yes that is All The Missing Girls. A slightly different unique twist on the psychologically thriller from Megan Miranda. Mind boggling. Captivating!

We see Nic rush back to her home town, to support her brother and father. Nicolette or Nic as she is known, has a massive sense of family responsibility. She wants to ensure her father gets looked after, as his dementia progresses. Nic quite happily moved on from Cooley Ridge ten years ago and reinvented herself. She wanted to put behind her everything that happened. Her best friend, Corinne, went missing. No one knew what happened. Another girl goes missing, in the present day. Our story starts at day 15. We follow the story, day by day. What is the truth about all the missing girls?

An unsolved ten year old mystery, plus small town secrets and lies and a rather twisted way of revealing a story makes a rather exciting story. It is like a drip drip effect, as you go from utter bafflement to slowly seeing the big picture. Megan Miranda provides us with clues and subtle hints from the start, together with a complex lead in Nic.

Massive fun, in a backwards way. Tense and rather disturbing. A bit like Marmite, you will either love it or hate it! Either way you will probably end up with your head throbbing, trying to suss it all out.

Clever, just clever.

  1. I agree that you either will hate it or love and I’m in the love it camp! I’ll be reviewing this one at the end of the month. I’ve never seen anything like it but I like it, especially because I didn’t know ANYTHING until the end of the novel!

    I read this last year and thought it was quite unique in the story telling. I’m looking forward to her next book, which will be published in a few months.
