THE UNPUTDOWNABLE NEW THRILLER FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE NEXT GIRL

 

What if your child went missing... and everyone thought it was your fault?

 

Julia Dawson’s daughter is gone. She knows everyone thinks Christina is dead; that people say Christina ran away to escape her controlling mother. But Christina would never do that, and Julia will never give up on finding her.

 

Christina was a difficult child. Short tempered and secretive, she didn’t get on with her new step-father. What Julia remembers most is the sun on her daughter’s shocking red hair, and the sound of laughter as she would talk for hours on the phone with her friends.

 

So when the broken body of a young girl is found and Julia is called in to identify her, she knows it isn’t her daughter.

 

But the girl is just like Christina, with the same pale skin and brilliant red hair.

 

Did this girl share a secret with Christina? If Julia finds out, could she get her daughter back?

She’s just the girl he’s looking for…

 

A young woman falls from a van speeding down a quiet road. Battered and bruised, she turns her head to the person who comes to her aid. ‘Help her’, she whispers before her eyes close.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER (February 2019)

In this gritty and gripping new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Eve Dallas fights to save the innocent—and serve justice to the guilty—on the streets of New York.

Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads—and with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering—whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle’s support.

Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve’s investigation confirms that this wasn’t just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene.


Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances...

I know everything about you.

And you know everything about me... except



WHO I AM.

Andi met Camilla at university. Instantly best friends, they shared everything together. Until their long-planned graduation celebration ends in tragedy...

Years later, Andi is living a seemingly perfect life on the rugged Cornish Coast with her loving husband, happy children and dream home. Yet Andi is haunted by a secret she thought only she knew.

Someone out there is bringing Andi's deepest fears to life. And she knows there's no escaping the past that has come back to haunt her...

You trusted me with your secrets, you told me everything, you thought I was your best friend... but you have no idea WHO I AM.

Perfect for fans of LJ Ross, Lucy Clarke and Theresa Driscoll.
