Review: Not Your Child by Lis Angus


Ottawa psychologist and single mother Susan Koss discovers that a strange man has been following her twelve-year-old daughter Maddy. She fears he’s a predator, but it’s worse than that. The man, Daniel Kazan, believes Maddy is his granddaughter, abducted as a baby—and he’s obsessed with getting her back.

Susan insists on a DNA test to disprove Daniel’s claim, but the result is one she can’t understand or explain: it says she’s not Maddy’s mother.

Then Maddy vanishes. Susan’s convinced Daniel has taken her, but he has an alibi, and two searches of his house turn up nothing. The hunt is on—police are on full mobilization, and Susan fears the worst. 

My opinion:

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Not Your Child by Lis Angus is a suspense novel.

Daniel Kazan was a farmer from Alberta. For eleven years he was looking for his missing granddaughter, Hannah. When he went to Ottawa to sell his aunt’s house he saw a girl who looked a lot to his daughter, Maddy. He was so sure that this girl was Hannah that he started
following her and asking about her. Soon Susan Koss, Maddy’s mother, found out about Daniel and his crazy claiming. She needed him to stay away from their lives and for that to happen she had to convince him he was wrong. A test DNA would prove that Maddy wasn’t his
granddaughter and that she was her daughter. But what would happen if the results weren’t what she was expecting?

It’s such an amazing story. A very well-written book, with good word building, that’s told by multiple povs. The plot is very captivating and unpredictable, a slow burn that intensifies until the surprising ending. The beginning of the book was pretty straightforward by
describing the main event but then the twists kept popping up. After that it was a crazy ride of figuring out what was wrong and if the story would have a happy ending. The characters were incredible, they were quite realistic with unique issues. The ending was my favorite part of the book.

Not Your Child is a book that shouldn’t be missing from any library. If you love a good suspense novel then this one is perfect for you. I will rate it with 5 stars.
