Descent; Tim Johnston

Descent: A NovelDescent by Tim Johnston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A sister and brother go out for a morning run/bicycle and it all goes terribly, terribly wrong: he's hit by a car and badly injured, she disappears. Was it stalking? Incredibly unfortunate coincidence? Even by the end of the book readers won't be sure.

The biggest problem for me was knowing who was telling which part of the story (a problem that may not exist in the final, print version), and the POV shifted often enough that occasionally it took a few moments to get into that part of the story. How this family disintegrates following the disappearance of a member felt very real: what would happen if this happened to yours, or a family you know?
