Gone In The Night by Mary-Jane Riley – Book Review



Some secrets are deadly…

When the victim of a car crash begs journalist Alex Devlin for help before disappearing without trace, Alex finds herself caught up in a mystery that won’t let her go.

Determined to find the missing man, she is soon investigating a conspiracy that threatens some of the most vulnerable members of society.

But will Alex be prepared to put her own life on the line to help those who can’t help themselves?



#4 In The Alex Devin series but can easily be read as a stand-alone.

Set in Norwich and Cora is searching for her brother, Rick…..he lives on the streets, but he’s missing and no-one has seen him since he talked to two men about a job….

There are also other missing homeless people, but the police believe they have just moved on…

Alex Devlin, a journalist, is at an event hosted by the Rider family, when after a ‘disagreement ‘ with her companion, David, decides to walk home….

She comes across a car accident and the wounded victim passes her a pieces of paper, as another car pulls up and the two men say they will take him to hospital….!

Alex tries to find the injured man, but no hospital has any record of him, so she calls the person on the piece of paper…..Cora !

Told in chapters day by day from each of the characters perspectives, which give the reader a great way to get all sides of the same story…it also shows how the homeless are invisible to society and the lack of support for those that need it….tragic and emotive.

Alex is certainly driven, she has a need for the truth and will not just let it lie….a great character, a strong, independent woman….I found myself totally gripped by this twisty, immersive thriller…..just what was the job Rick had been given? Why did he have to escape? Why don’t the police link the disappearances to the bodies being found ?

I can thoroughly recommend this for lovers of a psychological thriller with an emotional heart…
