The Widow, by Fiona Barton

You could compare this book to Girl On the Train, in the sense that they’re both psychological thrillers, but GOT had more drama–there was a real threat of someone being murdered, whereas Widow had more of a sinister undercurrent. Also reminded me of the British TV series ‘The Killing.”

A young girl is missing, and the trail to the killer focuses on the underworld of pedophilia and child porn. But don’t worry, you won’t find any scenes of torture or blood letting. In fact, the reporters hunting down the lead for their next headline, regardless of who they end of hurting, are more terrifying than some of the suspects.

One thing for sure–it’s well written, and kept my interest to the very last page.
