WOW..... and breathe...... What a brilliant book this was!!! I was hooked within the first few pages and I just had to sit in my comfy chair and finish it… Brilliant from the beginning till the end!’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

I will do anything to protect my daughter. She’s all I’ve ever wanted and all I really have, but the moment I opened that letter and accepted the gift inside, I walked us right into a dangerous trap.

I know I should have got her to tell me who she’s been talking to on the phone late at night, and where she was the day I went to pick her up from school and couldn’t find her, but she’s not spoken a word since she discovered a secret hidden in our new home.

And now she’s missing…

A jaw-dropping, addictive and totally twisty psychological thriller that will have you sleeping with the light on! Perfect for anyone who loved The Girl on the Train, Friend Request or The Wife Between Us.

    By Sarah Peterborough
    Where do I start with this book without giving anything away or repeating the blurb? I loved it! Mel, the main character, will quickly draw you into the story and you will empathise, wanting to see what happens to her and her daughter Kate, after life continually deals them blow after blow. You will be anxious, alongside them, disbelieving of the events they face and astounded at how quickly and deviously the plot winds you in. Several times I thought I had got it and the story even moved towards what I had predicted. And then, off it goes, throwing in some turns I just hasn’t even considered. Samantha’s writing is as cleverly descriptive as ever, giving me clear pictures of a flat in Birmingham, a care home and a rundown hotel in need of renovating, without me realising I have read any descriptions. My mind was constantly puzzling, predicting and failing to solve the mysterious events and the twists keep coming, even when you think everything is sorted comfortably and you have a resolution - watch out!
