Michael Frazier and his wife Angela were happily married and trying everything to get pregnant which would make their life complete.  The strains of trying for this one important element for complete happiness was only made all the more tenuous when Michael’s ex-wife Erica showed up on his doorstep pleading for his help… She then dropped a bombshell that her nine-year old daughter Felicity was missing – and the bigger shocker he – Michael was her father!  

Naturally, even though Michael was finding his new fatherhood was hard to believe there was a niggling fact that it might also be true.  Against his wife’s objections, Michael had no choice but to try and follow the trail of crumbs that Erica’s story left behind.  Could it be true and could the bond he had with his soul-mate Angela withhold the stretch to the limit suspense as more and more facts came to life?

This truly was an amazing suspense thriller with a plethora of characters all having this or that in common and fingers pointing all over the place as to who had kidnapped the child.   The only reason this didn’t earn a coveted FIVE star review is that I felt that the end was a bit rushed and there were threads that seemed hastily brushed away or forgotten.   However, don’t let this dissuade you from picking this up as SOMEBODY’S DAUGHTER was a truly great and rapidly paced read!
