Feeling sick and shaky, I switch on the TV and the headlines begin. And there I am, addressing the audience directly: ‘If you are watching and you know anything at all about where my child is, please help us…’
Julia puts her two children onto the train with a kiss and a promise of something special for dinner that evening. She doesn’t like them going alone, but she tells herself it’s only to the next town and her daughter Cass can be trusted to look after her little brother. But when darkness falls and only one child comes home, Julia realises she’s made a terrible mistake.
Her past has finally caught up with her, but can she save her family in time?
Utterly twisty and completely unputdownable. This insanely gripping page-turner from bestselling author Lucy Dawson is perfect for anyone who tore through Friend Request, Gone Girl or My Lovely Wife.
