Rachel | 1531 comments I've only read a review of this book so have limited information, but would like to find it so I can read it!

It's an Australian novel which came out in 2013. I read the review just a few months ago, no earlier than September. It is about a couple whose child or baby is abducted. The review described the opening chapter where the couple are on a plane and their baby won't stop crying. I think later on the baby is abducted from their car while they are at a petrol station. I think they are either flying from Scotland to Australia, or vice versa.

I've tried searching the website of the newspaper where I read the review, but had no luck, and google hasn't helped either. Hoping this will ring a bell with someone!

This is a long shot as only some elements match (e.g., child kidnapped at a petrol station in Ireland) - Taken by Niamh O'Connor?

Rachel | 3 comments Nope, that's not the one, but thanks for the suggestion.

Rachel | 1531 comments I've managed to solve this one myself by emailing the book reviews editor of the newspaper! If anyone is interested - it was The Cry by Helen Fitzgerald
