Publisher's summary

Set against a ticking clock, this "haunting" and "atmospheric" thriller pits a ruthless cult against a mother's love, revealing that our darkest secrets are the hardest ones to leave behind (Sally Hepworth, New York Times best-selling author of The Good Sister).

Four days to go

Amy has only ever known life in the Clearing, amidst her brothers and sisters - until a newcomer, a younger girl, joins the "family" and offers a glimpse of the outside world. Three days to go Freya is going to great lengths to seem like an "everyday mum", even as she maintains her isolated lifestyle, hoping to protect her young son and her dog. Two days to go When news breaks of a missing girl - a child the same age as Freya's son, Billy - Amy and Freya find themselves headed for a shocking collision. One day to go

Critic reviews

"Pomare captivates in this haunting novel, In The Clearing. I was utterly gripped with the stories of Amy and Freya from start to finish, and fascinated by the unexpected way the two came together. Thrilling, atmospheric and with twists abounding, this book held me in its spell long after the final page. A sure-fire bestseller." (Sally Hepworth, best-selling author of The Mother-in-Law)

"A pared-back firecracker where the danger is clear and present - even if its exact shape remains opaque until the book's climax and final gasp-inducing twist." (Books & Publishing, Australia)

"A dark, chilling, atmospheric thriller populated with mysterious and wonderfully flawed characters." (Christian White, author of The Nowhere Child)
