The Other People

""‘The Other People’ had me hooked and was read in one sitting.""


Driving home one night, stuck behind a rusty old car, Gabe sees a little girl's face appear in its rear window. She mouths one word: Daddy. It's his five-year-old daughter, Izzy. He never sees her again.

Three years later, Gabe spends his days and nights traveling up and down the highway, searching for the car that took his daughter, refusing to give up hope, even though most people believe she's dead.

When the car that he saw escape with his little girl is found abandoned with a body inside, Gabe must confront not just the day Izzy disappeared but the painful events from his past now dredged to the surface.

Purchase the book from Amazon.


Fran and her daughter Alice spend a lot of time travelling, but they are running and hiding. They can't stop running as Fran will know what will happen if they get caught. Kate works at a service station on the motorway and often sees Gabe. He looks like the world has beaten him and over time she begins to learn why. The story is told from the perspectives of each of the main characters; all separate to begin with but as the plot develops their stories become entwined with each other. Going back and forth from past to present, the story and suspense builds. Whilst a small part of the plot is easy to predict, there are lots of twists that will keep you guessing and leave you surprised. As with other books from this author, 'The Other People' is a regular thriller, but with a supernatural element to it. If you are not a fan of the ethereal plots, then I would recommend you keep reading as this is just a small part of the book and it doesn't overpower what is otherwise a well-written thriller. 'The Other People' was an exciting page turner that had me rooting for Gabe. Each of the well-crafted characters were true to life. Remove the supernatural element and this plot doesn't actually seem that unbelievable. 'The Other People' had me hooked and was read in one sitting.
