Book Review / The Gift by Alison Gaylin


What’s a desperate mother to do when her child suddenly disappears? Anything it takes to keep the family together in USA Today bestselling author Alison Gaylin’s short story with a sting.

It’s dreaded news for actress Lyla McCord and her husband, Nolan. Their eight-year-old daughter has vanished. To find her, Nolan reaches out to a psychic gifted with uncanny visions about the lost girl. But Lyla thinks she sees right through him. Is he a con artist or the real thing? Either way, he might be telling the truth. And that’s too frightening for Lyla to bear.

Alison Gaylin’s The Gift is part of Hush, a collection of six stories, ranging from political mysteries to psychological thrillers, in which deception can be a matter of life and death. Each piece can be read or listened to in one truly chilling sitting.

This is author who has written a book in this collection that I have not read anything of before but I certainly will be picking up more from.  Surprisingly for me, this story was fast paced which I hadn't thought would be possible in such a short story.

If I had to be picky, the ending in this story really wasn't for me but this story is worth picking up for the journey the story takes you on.
