You love your family. They make you feel safe. You trust them.
But should you?
When 15-year-old Billy Wilkinson goes missing in the middle of the night, his mother, Claire, blames herself. She's not the only one. There isn't a single member of Billy's family who doesn't feel guilty. But the Wilkinsons are so used to keeping secrets from one another that it isn't until six months later, after an appeal for information goes horribly wrong, that the truth begins to surface.
Claire is sure of two things: that Billy is still alive and that her friends and family had nothing to do with his disappearance.
A mother's instinct is never wrong. Or is it?

"The Missing has a delicious sense of foreboding from the first page, luring us into the heart of a family with terrible secrets and making us wait, with pounding hearts for the final, agonizing twist. Loved it." (Fiona Barton, author of The Widow)
"I was grabbed by this book from the first page and read the ending with an open mouth. I wish I could unread it so that I could go back and discover it again. Brilliant!" (Angela Marsons, author of Silent Scream)

This is a really good book and a great listen, I had to carry on listening in every spare moment. It all came together brilliantly, C.L. Taylor is a marvellous author and Clare Corbett is a fabulous narrator
First audio book! Couldn't stop listening, kept guessing right til the end. Would def recommend a listen
This was amazing, gripping and total worth a read or a listen. She's a fantastic author.
"could not stoo listening"
I bought this souley due to the narrator if i m being honest. I find her easy to listen to and she brings characters to life. She did not dissapoint and neither did the story.
When I first started to listen I found the text dialogues a bit irratating however they were pivotal to this story which was a real who dunnit.
i finished in two sittings. I literally couldn't stop listening.
"good story excellent narration"
enjoyed this story, good ending. Touched on every character close to Claire. Enjoyed the narration too
I chose this book because I enjoy Claire narration. thoroughly enjoyed it. always great to find a new author. loved it - will definitely keep up with her writing.
"Real page turner!"
An author I hadn't previously come across, but this book gripped me from page 1. The vehicle of using the amnesia episodes, really helped to prolong the tension. I loved it!
loved it. It was full of twists and kept you guessing would recommend it! gripping
Wasn't sure about the narrators voice at first but I did get used to her. Gripping story and very cleverly put together. Kept me guessing til the end. Loved the fact that it was a very modern story and was a real insight into what teenagers get up to. Looking forward to watching this on tv now. I will definitely read other books from this author.
I really enjoyed this book- keeps you guessing until the end. Very believable characters that you can really feel empathy with.
