The Forgotten – Casey Kelleher

The more people you love, the more you have to lose…

Nancy Byrne might be the head of the notorious Byrne crime family, but she’s determined to give her little daughter, Scarlett, the best start possible.

After the death of her beloved father, the notorious gangster Jimmy Byrne, nothing’s stopping Nancy from making money on her own terms – even if she has to combine motherhood with providing for her entire family. But with enemies at their door, she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her loved ones.

But then comes the day when Scarlett goes missing, snatched by a stranger during a trip to the local park, and Nancy’s world is torn apart. Amidst the terror of losing her precious daughter, Nancy is sure of only two things. Someone has taken her daughter … and when she finds them, there’s going to be hell to pay.

Can she find Scarlett – before it’s too late? Or will Nancy’s life of crime come back to haunt her in the worst way possible?



My review

Don’t ever rely on the ones you trust the most …

This book is an absolute gem. I have read it in one go! It was just unputdownable.

From the first page, you are dragged into the story and it feels like you are on a raft in a white water stream. You are not allowed to get off until the bitter end and honestly, you don’t want to get off! You simply want to immersed …

I love it when there are different storylines and, little by little, they come together perfectly.

I have not read the two other parts, but they are defintely added to my list.

Overall, I can say : this is a book that won’t be easily forgotten. 5 stars.

Thank you, Casey Kelleher, Bookouture and Netgalley
