The real nightmare starts when her daughter is returned…

A bone-chilling psychological thriller that will suit fans of Gone Girl, The Couple Next Door and The Girl on the Train.

A girl is missing. Five years old, taken from outside her school. She has vanished, traceless.

The police are at a loss; her parents are beyond grief. Their daughter is lost forever, perhaps dead, perhaps enslaved.

But the biggest mystery is yet to come: one week after she was abducted, their daughter is returned.

She has no memory of where she has been. And this, for her mother, is just the beginning of the nightmare.


‘A nail-biting psychological thriller … maintains high suspense to the very end’ Publishers Weekly

‘Superbly crafted … will keep you up all night’

‘A novel that had me gripped from its opening paragraph … It certainly had me wanting more … An excellent novel’

‘A story that will grab your attention from the start … It will certainly appeal to any fans of psychological thrillers’

    Well written but very very intense for any of those who have children or nephews and niches they love. Be warned.

    I enjoyed this book and despite being busy, made time to read it in a few days. Despite knowing that Anna returns, as the blurb overly tells us, I found the book to be quite enthralling, although it does get a tad slow in the middle, before picking back up again near the end, where you find out who did it (which I had guessed earlier on, but didn't mind, it happens when you read a lot of thrillers; you have to be right sometimes), which left me trying to power read it with anticipation of what was going to happen! The last few sentences of the book felt a bit abrupt to me, like it might be leading to a second one, but as far as I can find, there is no talk of it in the pipe works, so to say. There are a few points in the book where I felt that I didn't particularly like the characters, but over all, it was a good read that I would recommend, especially as already said, to fans of Gone Girl and similar books.

    I couldn't put it down! Loved it!
  • Predictable....

    By FaerieLee :)
    ...and I rarely predict them! Halfway through, however, it seemed so inevitable that I had to skim read from that point on. Shame.
  • OMG....

    Loved this book. Couldn't put it it in 24 hours. Totally did not expect the ending..I thought it was someone else right up to when we found out who it was. Would love a sequel to it. And a movie.

    This novel keeps you on the edge of your seat. From page 1 you are hooked & don't want to put it down. I really hope there is a sequel to this story. I seriously didn't want it to end & was a little disappointed that it did. Definitely the best thriller I have EVER read.

    It's been a long time since I read a book that hooked me so well that I couldn't put it down.very believable characters and plot with a nightmare complication! felt the main characters anguish on every page. Why aren't there more books by this writer? There should be. Highly recommend the story from beginning to end.
  • I stayed awake to continue reading... Great book!

    By Nicscorp
    This is the kind of book you I literally could not put down... Towards the middle it does get a little tedious but the author must have realised this and got on with it.
