Mine by Susi Fox

ebook, 464 pages
Published March 8th 2018 by Penguin

About the Book: Waking up after an emergency caesarean, you demand to see your son. But it's someone else's child. No one believes you - not the hospital, not your father, not your loyal husband. They say you're delusional. Dangerous. They suspect you want to steal another baby. All you know is that you must find your own child before he's out of reach forever. And you're a doctor - you would know if you were losing your mind. Right? 

Wow, what an utterly gripping, chilling and thought provoking read this was! I like twisty books that keep me guessing and this book certainly did that. I thought this was well written and it kept my interest from the first page to the last, all I can say is, it makes you wonder what is really going on in other people's lives and minds.
As a parent myself, having read the synopsis, I knew this book would be a "must read" for me. I was drawn in right from the word go. The narratives were clear and easy to read. The final segments of the story were very chilling, and I could picture the whole situation playing out. The ending was the best possible outcome although nonetheless thought provoking and sad.
The lost or stolen child is a familiar theme in psychological thrillers but there is something about the way that Susi Fox treats the theme in Mine that particularly appeals...I think Ms. Fox has one hell of an imagination, and I am very glad she does.
