The Babysitter by Phoebe Morgan

A psychological thriller/mystery I did a book club review on recently. The book opens with a babysitter found dead in her flat, her body slumped over the cot of the child she was looking after, but the baby is missing. A family consisting of husband, wife, their teenage daughter, and wife’s sister are holidaying at the sister’s villa in France, and the French police arrest the husband on behalf of the Suffolk police for the murder. The narrative is the picking apart of all the circumstances leading up to this. The real story is in the real dysfunction within the family group that becomes exposed, and the interplay of their various relationships is really well written. Great pace, and lots of twists and great red herrings keep you guessing to the end.
