Burnt Paper Sky by Gilly MacMillan

Rachel Jenner turned her back for a moment. Now her eight-year-old son Ben is missing.
But what really happened that fateful afternoon?
Caught between her personal tragedy and a public who have turned against her, there is nobody left who Rachel can trust. But can the nation trust Rachel?
The clock is ticking to find Ben alive.
Gilly Macmillan grew up in Swindon, Wiltshire and also lived in Northern California in her late teens. She studied History of Art at Bristol University and then at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London. She worked at The Burlington Magazine and the Hayward Gallery before starting a family. Since then she's worked as a part-time lecturer in A Level Photography and a full-time mum. Gilly lives in Bristol with her husband and three children. This is her first novel.
Review: Burnt Paper Sky is a heart pounding thriller that centres around every parents worst nightmare - losing a child. I was terrified reading this book, petrified of what the conclusion might be - the author has a brilliant way of dragging you in until you can't put the book down. Each person within the pages of the plot is wrapped up in their own grief, anger and whirlwind of emotion. I don't want to give anything away, so all I'll say is read the book. It's amazing!
