Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Alice Teale is missing. In a town full of secrets, hers was the biggest.

The gripping new thriller from the best-selling author of The Chosen Ones.

As usual, 17-year-old Alice Teale walked out of school at the end of a bright spring day.

She's not been seen since.

Alice was popular and well-liked, and her boyfriend, friends and family are desperate to find her. But when the police start asking questions, it becomes clear that almost everyone has something to hide.

Torn between a host of suspects, Detectives Beth Winter and Lucas Black don't know which way to turn. But then they receive a disturbing package: pages from Alice's precious diary.

Who could have sent them? And have they done with Alice?

not the author's best work

I have enjoyed the previous books from this author, and I was looking forward to enjoying this one. Unfortunately, this must be one his early works, and it shows. The story is not interesting or compelling, the characters boring and predictable. I gave up on this about a quarter of the way through, just not worth the time.

Great listen !

I really did enjoy this book. I Found it hard to stop listening into the wee hours. The plot was unexpected with twists and turns. The narrators were very good But I just have one reservation. This book is set in Northumberland albeit a fictious town. It is where I live. The narrator for Alice had a good regional accent but the narrator for all the other characters made them sound like they came from London somewhere like Lewisham !This meant that the Northern dialect words and phrases particular to this area , that author had written were lost. I’m not sure why they chose to do this. I know it is a small criticism and it did not spoil an otherwise good book . I hope there will be more in the series.

A brilliant whodunnit

Very edgy and fast paced. Strong storyline with a few twists. Definitely an author to read more of.

Kept me guessing.....

Fantastic listen, lots of strings to the story, suspect there is more to come from the detectives.
