the search for Leah Hill is on. the next-door neighbour in Norfolk seems to be a bit of a snoop, but that's good because a nosey neighbour can provide some valuable info.
it's going to be very interesting to see if Chris Hill, husband, is involved in the disappearance or not. the novel has created the impression that there is something "off" about him, but there is no obvious reason to think he is our main culprit here. if he is guilty of having done something to his wife, anything clever about the plot is going to have to go beyond letting the prime suspect turn out to be the kidnapper(/murderer?).
