Excellent read. Within the first few pages I was sucked in to this story and could not put it down!

"Five years ago, Harry and Robin's three-year-old son, Dillon, was killed when their Tangier apartment building collapsed in an earthquake. With their relationship understandably affected, they've moved to Dublin to start again. But when Harry believes he's seen Dillon on a crowded street in Dublin, he is consumed with finding him again. Was Dillon kidnapped? Or is Harry hallucinating, debilitated by guilt for having left his son alone? Either way, his obsession takes over his life, once again straining his marriage. This twisty yet reflective tale is "an intriguingly emotional and conventional debut" (Kirkus Reviews) by established authors Paul Perry and Karen Gillece, working together for the first time under the pseudonym Karen Perry."
