Missing Marta

Seventeen year old Marta del Castillo went missing practically from outside her front door last Saturday evening in Seville. The clock has stopped for another family. A void has opened up in a neighbourhood where the only talk in the streets, normally full of cheerful chatter, is to ask if there’s any news.

Someone somewhere knows whether Marta was taken against her will or whether she said goodbye to her friend, pretended to go home and instead ran away in the other direction. Apparently the first option seems more likely but I’m sure her family are holding their breath for a phone call to say “I’m sorry I was silly, I’m on my way home”. If only.

Yesterday the parents of murdered five year old Mari Luz went to see Marta’s family to give them their support. The Seville family spokesperson, Javier Casanova, said that it had helped to talk to people who have already been through their torment. But if I was Marta’s mother I’m sure that suddenly being put in the same boat as parents whose daughter had been abducted and killed would make matters worse.

We can only hope they find her soon.

    Otras características
    Eric tenía todo lo que podía desear un hombre: una mujer, un hijo, un hogar. Pero cuando el crimen y la sospecha llaman a su puerta, descubrirá que no conoce a nadie… ni siquiera a los que más quiere. La pequeña Amy, hija del frutero del pueblo, ha sido secuestrada. Y el principal sospechoso es Keith, el hijo adolescente de Eric. La presión policial y las elusivas miradas de los vecinos dan pronto paso a algo mucho peor: una duda que crece como un cáncer en el alma del propio Eric. Un sentimiento voraz y espantoso que alcanza no sólo a su hijo, sino a los recuerdos de su propia infancia, que esconden un terrible secreto que nunca ha querido ver.

    Editorial Reviews
    From Publishers Weekly
    In this affecting, if oddly flat, crime novel from Edgar-winner Cook (The Chatham School Affair), Eric Moore, a prosperous businessman, watches his safe, solid world disintegrate. When eight-year-old Amy Giordano, whom Eric’s teenage son, Keith, was babysitting, disappears from her family’s house, many believe Keith is an obvious suspect, and not even his parents are completely convinced that he wasn’t somehow involved. As time passes without Amy being found, a corrosive suspicion seeps into every aspect of Eric’s life. That suspicion is fed by Eric’s shaky family history-a father whose failed plans led from moderate wealth to near penury, an alcoholic older brother who’s never amounted to much, a younger sister fatally stricken with a brain tumor and a mother driven to suicide. Not even Eric’s loving wife, Meredith, is immune from his doubts as he begins to examine and re-examine every aspect of his life. The ongoing police investigation and the anguish of the missing girl’s father provide periodic goads as Eric’s futile attempts to allay his own misgivings seem only to lead him into more desperate straits. The totally unexpected resolution is both shocking and perfectly apt.

    From Booklist
    Cook’s latest is proof that he is maturing into a gifted storyteller. An eight-year-old girl is missing. The police quickly zero in on her baby-sitter, Keith Moore. Keith’s parents proclaim his innocence, but his father, Eric, has his own secret doubts. The way the author tells the story, it really doesn’t matter whether Keith is guilty or not; what matters is the way the Moore family slowly disintegrates, as his parents deal in their own ways with the possibility that their son may be a monster. The novel is narrated by Eric; perhaps the story might have been slightly more effective if it were told in the third person, so we could watch Eric fall apart (rather than listen to him tell us about it), but that’s nit-picking. In terms of its emotional depth and carefully drawn characters, this is one of Cook’s best novels. David Pitt

  3. I do like the manner in which you have presented this matter plus it really does offer me personally some fodder for thought. Nonetheless, coming from just what I have experienced, I simply just trust when the reviews pack on that folks remain on point and not embark upon a soap box of the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this superb point and though I do not really agree with this in totality, I regard your perspective.

    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
