I literally sat and read the entire book with a 24-hour period. David Bell has done it again!!! This is a thriller roller coaster ride full of family secrets, bombshells and suspense! Michael and his wife, Angela are enjoying a quiet night at home when his ex-wife, Erica, shows up desperate and begging for help. Her 9-year-old daughter, Felicity, is missing. Michael feels bad but doesn't know what she wants from him, until she reveals he is the girl’s father. She also tells him the girl resembles his sister who died when they were children which she knows will pull at his heartstrings. Not knowing if she is telling the truth or not, he decides to help. He has always wanted a child. He and his wife are currently trying to have a child. What if this girl is his child? He would not be able to live with himself if he did not help in finding the child. Why did his ex-wife never tell him she was pregnant when they divorced? Why has she remained silent about the girl? Just what happened the day the girl went missing? As he leaves with his ex-wife to find her (and maybe his) daughter, his current wife, Angela learns some "truths" which are troubling to her, concerning her husband and several of his family members. It turns out Michael's ex-wife was not the only one keeping a secret(s) in this book. Through the course of the night searching for the missing girl, twists and turns, revelations and hidden agendas come into play. There are quite a few characters in this book, but it is very easy to keep track of them from the police detectives, the family members, old neighbors, exes, and suspects. Whew! I really like when I cannot figure a book out. There suspense galore as most of the chapters end in a tiny cliffhanger which has the reader begging for more information. Some of the characters seems a little off - so the reader never knows if we can fully trust them - which adds to the fun of reading this psychological thriller. There are quite a few twists and turns which had me turning the pages. I really enjoyed this book. I think fans of mystery/thriller/suspense books will enjoy this. There are no graphic scenes, excessive language or violence so most people will be able to enjoy this book. As I previously stated, I liked that I did not have the book figured out. I also enjoyed the various POV chapters. I found they helped move the story along and kept my interest. Thank you to Berkley Publishing Group and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. See more of my reviews at www.openbookpost.com

After finishing dinner late one evening, Michael and his wife Angela are startled by a knock on their door. When Michael opens the door, he is surprised to see his ex-wife Erica. Even more surprising is when Erica tells Michael that he has a nine-year-old daughter named Felicity! Erica then goes on to reveal that Felicity has gone missing and she needs Michael’s help finding her, which lays the groundwork for a lot of action, drama, and a little bit of craziness. The police, Erica, Michael, and Angela, all get drawn into the search for Felicity. Was this little girl kidnapped or is there something even more sinister going on? Each chapter had me coming up with a new theory about what really happened to Felicity, as little snippets about her disappearance gradually come to light. I love playing detective, and in this instance, my detective skills let me down as I was too caught up in certain characters to pay attention to what was really going on! While I might have failed at playing detective, I loved the experience of trying to solve the mystery behind Felicity’s disappearance. Short chapters with alternating POV’s add to the tension and suspense of the story. Angela and Detective Griffin seemed to be the most developed characters, while Michael felt flat to me and came off as a little childlike--I think I would have felt even a higher level of tension had his character been more developed. There were several instances where I found myself yelling at the characters--boy oh boy do some of them make STUPID choices….but then again their stupidity lends to some interesting revelations! I also found the ending a little bit too neat and happy for my tastes, but I am a cynic at heart so others might not feel this way! Overall, this was an enjoyable read that tested my detective skills! I recommend to those who enjoy a twisty mystery! I received an ARC of this book from Berkley Publishing and EW in exchange for an honest review.

When the doorbell rings at eight o’clock on a normal Tuesday evening, Michael Frazier is surprised. The doorbell almost never rings. Michael was just thinking about the upcoming trip that he and his wife, Angela are taking. They have been trying to have a child for quite some time and they hope that some time away together will help them realize their dream. When Michael opens the door he’s shocked to see whose standing there. A woman is pacing back and forth, smoking a cigarette. He can’t believe what he’s seeing. It’s his ex-wife, Erica. She tells him she needs his help. He tells her she needs to leave. But she says something that shocks him into silence… “ Michael. My daughter. Someone kidnapped my daughter this morning.” It has been ten years since he's seen Erica….he’s remarried. She is talking so fast he can barely keep up. She mentions something about a music teacher and her daughter, Felicity. Michael tells her she needs to go to the police. She says she has already talked to them. Then she starts to cry and tells him he has no choice, he has to help her. “She’s yours, Michael. Felicity is your daughter, and I need your help getting her back.” Michael doesn’t believe her. Why would she wait so long to tell him? But regardless of whether or not Felicity is his daughter, he now realizes he needs to help Erica in any way he can. His wife, Angela is not thrilled when Michael leaves with Erica but she knows he needs to do what he can to help. All she can do is tell him to be careful. Where is Felicity? I was immediately pulled into this story. It is told from multiple perspectives. We hear from Michael, his wife Angela, and Detective Erin Griffin. We learn more about Michael’s history including a family tragedy that occurred when he was young. A tragedy that still haunts him. I thought this was a well-written and interesting novel. As it is fictional suspense, there will often be things that seem implausible. I don’t usually have an issue with that, though there were a few things that seemed a bit over the top. I also felt the ending was a little rushed. But overall, I really enjoyed this novel. It had some great twists that I didn’t see coming and I read it in just a few sittings. I'm really looking forward to seeing what David Bell has in store for readers next. I'd like to thank David Bell and Berkley Books for giving me the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.

The book is told From alternating points of view... with very short chapters that all have a bit of a cliffhanger at the end... this made this book a very quick and suspense filled read... One quiet night at home Michael answers the door to find Erica... and his life is changed forever.... Erica‘s daughter Felicity is missing... and the kicker Felicity is also Michael’s daughter, something he is just now finding out... told from the perspective of Michael, his new wife Angela, and a police detective.... Angela was by far the most relatable character to me.... you could just put yourself in her shoes... a loving wife desperate to have a child of her own, who just found out her husband has a child with another woman, and the child is missing.... now those are some tangled emotions to sort through! And if that’s not enough Angela begins to find out more and more family secrets and deceptions... I really feel as though her story was the strength of this book... The perspective of the police detective added some information we might not otherwise no and Michael.... i’m still slightly puzzled by him and quite a few of his actions, but no judgment... This was a fast paced enjoyable thriller and I had no idea who was guilty until the end... where this book was slightly lacking is the emotional connection between the reader and the child’s parents... I found Erica terribly unsympathetic and Michael just irritated me for some reason... I recently just finished Three Days Missing... another book involving a missing child and the main difference between these books is the emotional connection with the characters as well as a sense of urgency.... yes this book made me turn those pages quickly because I wanted to know what was going to happen next, but TDM made me feel every emotion that mother was going through and I was on pins and needles The entire read.... hate to compare, but because I read these books so close together the difference was noticeable... both books were filled with suspense and kept me guessing until the very end, one was just a little more emotional... Definitely recommend this to fans of a good suspense filled psychological thriller... *** many thanks to Berkley for my copy of this book ***

A knock on the door.... An ex wife's plea....a chance for a child.....a lie or the truth Michael and Angela Frazier are having a quiet evening, when a knock on the door interrupts all that quiet and is the beginning of a suspenseful laden trail to find the whereabouts of Michael's ex wife Erica's daughter, Felicity. Michael feels sympathy for Erica but then she delivers a punch that leaves Michael and Angela reeling. Erica reveals that Felicity is Michael's daughter. How can that be and yet Erica produces a picture of Felicity and it is a reminder to Michael of his dead sister. Michael races out the door with Erica and the chase is on. Michael and Angela have been trying to have a child with no success and yet here is a child, Michael's child or is she? What will this do to Michael's and Angela's marriage? Where is Felicity and why was she taken? As Angela and Michael try to discover where Felicity might be, detectives show up at Erica's house and she permits them access to Michael's computer where revelations that shake the foundation of her marriage are revealed. What is Michael's connection to his ex wife, and why does it seem like his family is involved? Talk about being blindsided! Mr Bell created for his readers a very well constructed mystery that kept you going wondering who could have taken Felicity. It had quite the surprising ending and the story made this reader want to dash for that ending, scurrying to find out if Felicity was safe and was she actually Michael's daughter. I would recommend this book to all who like twisty turning characters and events that makes one burn that midnight oil totally immersed in the story they are reading. "It is the wise father who knows his own child." (William Shakespeare) Will Michael come to this realization? Will Michael know his real child? Thank you to David Bell, Berkley Publishing, and Edelweiss for a copy of this enticing book.

The author, David Bell, has a knack for creating a strong sense of suspense keeping the reader flipping the pages quickly. On the other hand, the characters and storyline did not work for me (at all!). I found the entire premise unrealistic and the majority of the characters actions and decisions highly implausible. The characters did not come to life for me whatsoever. I simply couldn’t get into this story at all. I read this along with five of my Traveling Sisters and we were split with our feelings. Some enjoyed, others did not. I strongly suggest checking out the many raving reviews of this novel before making a decision. This was my lovely GR friend Kaceey’s “birthday read” and though I didn’t enjoy the book, I loved the experience of “celebrating” her birthday by reading it along with her.

Erica is desperate for his help. He has no time to wrap his mind around this revelation before he's caught up in the mad search for Felicity too. Angela, his current wife, is none to thrilled with the situation, but what can she do? A child is missing... SOMEBODY'S DAUGHTER is a gripping mix of suspense, mystery, police procedural, and family drama. The whole book takes place over one night, and the short chapters with alternating perspectives kept the pace flying along. Lots of intriguing characters are introduced, and whether they're trustworthy or not is up in the air. Let's just say that Erica wasn't the only one with secrets. My one quibble with the book is that it left me with some unanswered questions. One important story line ended abruptly without any further explanations. I had other questions too, about Erica and some supporting characters. Maybe the ending was just rushed? Overall, I thought that SOMEBODY'S DAUGHTER was an exciting, entertaining, and emotional thriller, which you can always count on from David Bell. Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I don't tend to read many thrillers as so many these days seem to have a lot of graphic violence and I have a very weak stomach when it comes to such things but I do enjoy a fast paced, somewhat trashtastic thriller that doesn't contain gory detail. And I mean trashtastic in a very affectionate way. The kind of book that you can get lost in over the course of a day lounging on a beach somewhere during your summer holidays or indulge in a quiet afternoon on the sofa after a long, stressful week. I don't tend to read many thrillers as so many these days seem to have a lot of graphic violence and I have a very weak stomach when it comes to such things but I do enjoy a fast paced, somewhat trashtastic thriller that doesn't contain gory detail. And I mean trashtastic in a very affectionate way. The kind of book that you can get lost in over the course of a day lounging on a beach somewhere during your summer holidays or indulge in a quiet afternoon on the sofa after a long, stressful week. This is exactly that type of book. It's fast paced. It's immediately gripping and very easy to read. The chapters are short and sharp with each one ending on a mini cliffhanger of sorts that keeps you wanting to turn those pages to discover if you know 'whodunit'. The premise of the story is as such: one night while at home with his wife Angela, Michael Frazier answers a knock at the door to discover his ex-wife Erica standing there. She tells Michael that her daughter Felicity is missing and that she needs his help to find her because he is her father. This bombshell causes Michael to drop everything and he begins a journey to track down his missing daughter with his ex-wife throwing his current life into turmoil. Over the course of the book secrets from everyone's past come to the fore and lives are changed forever. The plot of the book roars into life immediately and this breakneck speed continues until the very end which constantly kept my attention. The story twists and turns its way to a somewhat predictable conclusion (I called it very early on) but that didn't taint my enjoyment too much as there were what were ultimately minor characters and wild goose chases that did do their best to throw the reader off the scent. As this was quite a light read I don't feel I ever really connected emotionally with any of the main characters nor ever truly understood their motivations. As I don't frequently read that many thrillers I don't know if this is a standard plot device with which to keep the reader guessing but I would have liked a little more depth into discerning the mindset of Michael, Angela and Griffin the police officer. All felt a little too cliched to me in that we were just told random factoids about them instead of truly feeling or understanding what they felt. On the whole I did really enjoy this book. It really diverted my attention over the course of the long afternoon that I read it and I would recommend it to someone who is looking for a light thriller to help them escape the mundanities of everyday life for a few hours. three and a half stars *Due to a less than favourable review I had written about Emma Straub's 'Modern Lovers' I was approached by a marketing representative of the publisher, Berkley, to read and review 'Intermission' by Elyssa Friedland. An e-copy of that book was then kindly provided to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

We follow the investigation as it gets thicker by the minute and brings in a similar case that might be connected. The characters all seemed to be guilty, and they all seemed to have secrets with Angela being the only one who had no clue about anything going on. SOMEBODY’S DAUGHTER is filled with Mr. Bell’s signature tension and suspense. His hints and hanging situations at the end of each chapter were strong enough to make you not want to stop reading. And....I couldn't stop reading as the characters and the search became more complex, more intriguing, and had me scratching my head. BRAVO, Mr. Bell. Another suspenseful story line with an ending to ponder and to discuss. 5/5 I received an advanced copy. All opinions are my own.

    24 meets Law and Order, meets Taken—if you've never read anything by David Bell, Somebody's Daughter will surely take you by surprise. Michael Frazier and his wife Angela are trying to get pregnant; following the fertility methods by the book. Michael and Angela live a nice upper middle class life in a renovated home that he's had for years; a house that his ex-wife and him used to share. His ex-wife Erica has been out of the picture for a long time now, but she surprises Michael and Angela on 24 meets Law and Order, meets Taken—if you've never read anything by David Bell, Somebody's Daughter will surely take you by surprise. Michael Frazier and his wife Angela are trying to get pregnant; following the fertility methods by the book. Michael and Angela live a nice upper middle class life in a renovated home that he's had for years; a house that his ex-wife and him used to share. His ex-wife Erica has been out of the picture for a long time now, but she surprises Michael and Angela one day at their house with dire news. Her daughter Felicity is missing and Michael is the father. Unable to determine it's validity, Michael is stunned, but focused on helping Erica find Felicity. He wants to find out the truth and see if Felicity really is his daughter. As the investigation of Felicity's disappearance continues, both Michael and Angela fall down the rabbit hole of deception, lies, and family secrets that all wanted to stay buried. Somebody's Daughter is David Bell's best writing to date. Bell knows how to craft the story and engage the reader so intimately that you feel that you're intertwined into the plot. I really enjoyed how he has further developed his style of writing, as this time it's more gripping and fast-paced than ever before. If you have never read anything by David Bell, I urge you to pick this one up. If you have read novels by David Bell before—this story could be problematic for you. I gave Somebody's Daughter 3 stars because I felt that the story, although different in primary plot development, had an almost identical theme to Bring Her Home, which came out last year. I really felt that if Somebody's Daughter had a more diverse plot and storyline, I would have enjoyed it more. Overall, if you are interested in a fast paced thriller and never read anything by David Bell, Somebody's Daughter is yours for the choosing. If you read his previous work Bring Her Home and didn't love it, then this story may not be the best fit for you. I'm curious, yet excited to see David Bell's future work as an author, because his writing has continually grown and become more atmospheric. Thank you Berkley Publishing for my advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. Somebody's Daughter will be released July 10, this summer.

    It's no secret that I'm a fan of Bell. His writing is addictive as he writes short hanging chapters that keep you turning page after page. All three I've read from him have something to do with a daughter being gone. What else can he do with these poor girls!! I'll always want to know! I couldn't imagine having my husband's ex-wife show up on my front porch saying their child that he had no idea he had, is missing. I mean, BOOM - what a way to start.

(Also, I can't particularly imagine having a husband but that's a whole other story - ha! ;)) All jokes aside, this immediately set my curiosity sparks firing. Somehow Bell manages to build these characters and their complex lives in a very short time. No over indulgent descriptives that can get overwhelming in some books. Look, I'm a fan. I can't help but know I will always want to read whatever he puts out into this world. I can't quite pinpoint what it was that made me not like this quite as much as Cemetery Girl. At one point I felt like I was left hanging with one plot line but then realized it did get answered in the end but I was curious - what happened to those other characters though? Such a relative thing since they were really tertiary characters but still... I have to say the fact that he had me thinking about these still is a tip of the hat to Bell. For thriller fans who love domestic suspense and a binge read, Bell is always the way to go. 3.5 stars rounding to 4 for Goodreads

    Wow. To say I was blown away, satisfied and completely engrossed in this one would be a huge understatement, this book totally consumed me.

I know I say this every summer when Mr. Bell releases a new novel, but I’m saying it again anyway, this is my favorite of his books to date and his best yet. Bell is the master of taking ordinary people and thrusting them into outrageous yet wholly believable situations. Michael is happily married to Angela, so when Erica shows up unexpectedly one night and drops a bomb, he’s shook. The revelation is the first of countless shocking announcements, I swear this one was so surprising I truly never knew what would happen next. The pacing of this was relentless, short chapters, tons of mini cliffhangers and a super intense plot that made this unputdownable. I could go on and on about how much I loved this one, but I’ll end by urging you to read this, it’s outstanding. Somebody’s Daughter in three words: Shocking, Compulsive and Quick.

With alternating chapters between Michael, Angela, and a cop named Griffin. It’s fast paced and will keep you reading. There was one story line that was brought up, and I thought added an extra layer. But......at the end it was forgotten about! And they mentioned it a few times so I was really wondering if it was true or not. I hate when you don’t get the answers. Maybe at that point it didn’t make a difference but I thought it did. So that bothered me. The rest of the story was enjoyable and definitely keeps Bell in my “must read” list. **Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review.

But something was missing in this book. When the doorbell rang and he found out who was standing on the other side, I knew what direction this book is going to take. I was not wrong by much and the path of the story he took was a bit too obvious. Don't get me wrong. The author did include plenty of those key twists to keep us on our toes and keep us connected to the story. But the foreshadowing was not subtle enough and I think that is the difference between this book being a great read and something that just can’t be missed. Plus a big issue was left unanswered. Hmmm David Bell has brought us some great crime fiction suspense stories and this one is a very good story. It is a story that will keep you entertained, keep that heart rate up just a little bit, and keep you wondering what if… * copy received for review consideration

The author cleverly ended each shortish chapter with a cliffhanger which made me eager to continue that thread, but then there is another chapter which follows and is just as intriguing. I will definitely be reading more by this author.

    Michael finds himself in an odd situation when his ex-wife, Erica, shows up unexpectedly in his life. She needs help finding her missing daughter, who she claims is his daughter too. His marriage to Erica ended 10 years ago, and they have had no contact with one another, so the surprise of a nine-year-old daughter is a big shock to him. Michael is a good guy though, so he wants to help find the little girl, whether she is his child or not. However, this does cause some problems with his current Michael finds himself in an odd situation when his ex-wife, Erica, shows up unexpectedly in his life.

Michael is a good guy though, so he wants to help find the little girl, whether she is his child or not. However, this does cause some problems with his current wife, Angela. The story is told over about a day's worth of time, but does include flashbacks to explain backstory. One important part of Michael's life happened when he was a kid. A tragedy in his childhood greatly affected his life, along with the lives of his sister and parents. The current day story is told from multiple viewpoints, so the reader is aware of the activities of Michael, Angela, and the detective on the case. The characters were not all likable, but they were believable. A lot of people were involved throughout the story, and some of the subplots were not as interesting, or really, even relevant. Somebody's Daughter is a suspenseful story full of family drama. A complex and gripping read. I received a free eARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

"The cloud covered the stars and moon, clarity was gone". This book is beyond the pale. Each character meticulously crafted, with realistic emotions, foibles, and virtues. A plot which keeps the reader guessing, twisting and uncomfortable in his own skin. I could not let go. The writing style so fluid, is like the icy water one craves in thirst. I tried from room to room, read in as I walked, unable to get comfortable. An anxiety like a high tension wire. Today as I write about the book, I am pale, shaky and still have the general sense of unease that grew in me while I read. A psychological thriller that caused me to glance at my husband, sleeping on the couch, innocent. Or is he? How much do I really know about my husband of thirty-two years? What secrets does he keep? What doesn't he say? For that matter, how much does anyone know any other person? In truth? No spoilers. This is no light book. It is dark And I dare you to go there. It could be real...too real. But it is definitely a MUST READ. .....

I really didn't like any of the characters (in a good way), except Michael's wife, Angela. I loved her character, but with some of the things that happened I wanted her to get a little more feisty. I won't give spoilers, but let me just say a few of the things that involved Michael and his ex-wife Erica would have made me very irritated. Then again maybe Angela doesn't read as many thrillers as I do and so she doesn't have as many trust issues? Ha! #ThrillersGiveMeTrustIssues The story is a bit of a slow burn at first, but then the pace picks up and the plot gets very INTENSE. I had to stop myself from racing through the book to get to the end. I desperately wanted to know what happened to Felicity and who her biological dad was. There are some very well done twists and turns in Somebody's Daughter. When I finally got to the end I wasn't disappointed. The ending was unexpected, even though looking back there are a few clues woven into the story. I love when that happens! That shows excellent writing skills in my opinion. Overall Somebody's Daughter is a fantastic thriller and I would recommend it for sure. #IntenseAndUnexpected

    David Bell is usually a pretty reliable choice when it comes to suspense thrillers. This one, though, reads like it’s been phoned in or whatever the literary equivalent of that would be. Actually, it reads like it was written purely for the paycheck and was paid for by the page. That’s seems like a pretty severe estimation, but I’ve read every book Bell’s written so far, I know how well he can write and have a wide pool for comparison, so…yeah.

That’s seems like a pretty severe estimation, but I’ve read every book Bell’s written so far, I know how well he can write and have a wide pool for comparison, so…yeah. This is thriller lite version, primarily a family drama with some misunderstanding based intrigue. Ready made for Lifetime movie of the week. The plot involves a 9 year old girl who disappears, the kid’s paternity is questionable, hence the title. So one evening a man receives a visit from his ex wife, whom he’d not seen in 10 years, claiming that the child is his and is nowhere to be found and we’re off…everyone gets involved and sure enough in one evening/night/early morning the mystery, such as it were, is solved. The fact that it took over 400 pages to cover that short of a span of time gives you an idea of just how exhaustively detailed everyone’s perspectives were drawn out to be. Every chapter ends in some form of gasp inducing event and yet the sum total is so very underwhelming. Not even a murder, barely a proper mystery to solve, some suspense, sure, but for a thriller it’s just so…tame. Very frustrating, actually, to patiently wait for the book to get interesting while it steadfastly refuses to do so, opting instead for a somewhat tedious theatricality. And this is from a man who started with some pretty intense scary stories before he realized which genre is where the money’s at. Maybe it’s one of those things where a person just really mellows out with age. The thing is Bell can write, he’s got the basics down, even if it’s by numbers, it’s much more often than not oodles of fun, and his books read very easily and quickly and entertain plenty. In that respect this one is no exception, stylistically it’s Bell, thematically it’s Bell PG. So basically perfectly readable, just so disappointing and difficult to care about. Too bland, too mild, too lackluster, too long and too fairy taleish of an ending. Don’t judge the author by this book if you’re just discovering him, everyone’s got bills to pay. Thanks Netgalley.

    Imagine your ex-wife of 10 years ago showing up at your house one evening and telling you her daughter is missing. You didn’t even know she had a daughter. Then she tells you it is your daughter. This is what happens to Michael Frazier. He is now happily married to Angela, and they have been trying to have children with no success.

You didn’t even know she had a daughter. Then she tells you it is your daughter. This is what happens to Michael Frazier. He is now happily married to Angela, and they have been trying to have children with no success. When his ex-wife Erica shows up and drops this bombshell he doesn’t know what to do. He decides to go with Erica to try to help her find her/possibly their missing daughter. What follows is a night of mystery, revelations, and ultimately, answers. I really enjoyed the way David Bell wrote this book. The main characters are Michael, his wife Angela, and a Detective Griffin. Every chapter ends on somewhat of a cliffhanger and then goes to the other person’s viewpoint. This style of writing made for a very quick read and impossible to put down. I definitely would recommend this book to fans of fast-paced mysteries. The whole book takes place in one night. I have read almost all of David Bell’s previous books and this ranks as one of my favorites. I would like to think Net Galley for giving me an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
