Librarian Recommended Reads – Twister by Jane Woodham

There is a flu epidemic in Dunedin. Then after five days of rain a twister roars through and uncovers the body of a missing teenage girl. DSS Judd is the only person available to take the case. It is all close to home for him as his own daughter Beth has been missing for 9 years. Judd’s wife, Kate, is contemplating a life change and is harbouring a secret some of which has to do with Beth’s disappearance. This takes up quite a bit of the story along with Judd’s investigation and his internal search for what happened to his daughter.

The characters are good, there are many underlying factors to the whole picture. The descriptions of Dunedin are very good, and they should be, as this is the author’s home town.  Well worth a read, this is Jane Woodham’s first novel.
