About this ebook

‘I couldn't put it down… jaw dropping… fantastic… If you're a fan of Gone Girl, you're seriously going to enjoy this!’ Netgalley reviewer, 5 stars


‘Hello? Police? My husband and our children… they’re gone.’

When Mel arrives at the holiday cottage in the Lake District, she expects to find the heating on and her husband Luke and the two children waiting for her. Maybe a bottle of wine open…


Instead, there is just a note on the side, saying they’ve gone out for a walk.


But they aren’t back several hours later, and Mel knows something is wrong. Really wrong. When a search doesn’t find them, she has to confess to the police that her marriage isn’t all that it seems.


Even if that risks her own secrets being revealed…


An absolutely incredible, page-turning psychological thriller with a twist you won’t see coming, for fans of Gone Girl, Behind Closed Doors and Ruth Ware.

Twisty thriller told from one perspective then another. Just when you think you know what is real, the author changes up the narrative and the story becomes very real. How do you protect your family from the threats of another? A tough and often undertold story of families who find themselves with impossible options.

This is a book I’ll remember for a long time yet. Why? Because it was so exciting! I loved it. This author surely knows what a reader wants when it comes to psychological thrillers, drama, family, twists that the reader bends around and finds there’s a sting in its tail where the plot really does thicken. Imagine arriving in The Lake District where you were joining your husband and two children. Only to find the place empty. That’s it there.....I’m saying nothing more. At the beginning Mel was telling the story, the Police were called of course along with Rescue as she thought her family may have gone on a short hike. Not unusual, it’s something they enjoyed . Father and children. The plot thickens like black treacle wherever you step in this story you are stuck to the pages. I’m kidding you not. I just loved how this book was laid out. Going back over the lead up was superb, I enjoyed being lead. I do believe this author has another book, so I’m definitely buying it. I love how she writes, how she kept me guessing and boy oh boy, that ending.

This psychological crime novel is undoubtedly a masterpiece of clever, intricate story-building. You might think you know exactly where the story is going, then out of nowhere comes the next twist. Unexpected turns of event, characters that have you gripped with their next actions, children that you suddenly start to care about! Every fine detail matters in this exhilarating ride to the end. In parts I felt so angry that my kindle was nearly thrown across the room – not many books make me feel that engaged with the story, but this one is a killer for luring you in further and further. I cannot wait to read more from this author.
