Publisher's Summary

In this thrilling stand-alone novel from the internationally best-selling author of the Frieda Klein series, a woman’s frantic search for her missing daughter unveils a nefarious web of secrets and lies.

Nina Landry awakens on her 40th birthday, anticipating a day filled with excitement. She, her new boyfriend, and her two children are taking a trip - leaving their home on Sandling Island, off the coast of England, for a dream vacation. As soon as her 15-year-old daughter, Charlie, returns from a sleepover, they can get ready to leave. 

But Charlie doesn’t come home at the expected time. Nina can’t believe of all days, Charlie has chosen this day to be late. As minutes and then hours tick by, Nina’s annoyance soon changes to concern, and then to a chilling certainty that something terrible has happened. 

The police insist there’s no reason to worry - yet. Teenagers are unreliable, impulsive. Nina always thought she and Charlie had a solid, trusting relationship, but seeking out Charlie’s friends for clues to her whereabouts makes her reconsider. How well does Nina know her daughter, really? How well can a parent ever know a child? And will everything Nina doesn’t know - about Charlie, her neighbors, even the friends and family closest to them - prove fatal...? 

Losing You once again proves that Nicci French is at the height of their storytelling powers in a clever, mind-bending thriller that has listeners guessing at every twist and turn.

Really good book!

Not only was the story gripping but Imogen Church is phenomenal and makes the story and characters come ALIVE. I purposefully choose books to listen to where Imogen Church is the narrator and it’s given me the opportunities to “read” authors I hadn’t chosen before.

Waste of time

I was a fan of the Frieda Klein series and was looking forward to this new audible book. I was incredibly disappointed with this tedious, drawn out, pedantic story. I feel like the writing was lazy, and the author was simply trying to meet a word limit, like a middle schooler with a book report. I have been an audible member for many years, and this is the first review I have ever written. I listened to the end hoping for something redeemable, but it didn't materialize.

very good

I like Nicci french but I have always felt her books get resolved in a hurry. this was the opposite. she took her time, allowed the reader to solve the mystery with the main character. I really enjoyed it. and well, Imogen church is such a good narrator!

Unrecognizable

This doesn’t stand anywhere near the Frieda Klein novels. The narration was a master class in overacting.

Didn’t like the reader

I was frustrated with the reader as she spoke loud enough for the main character but seemed to whisper the other characters. I found that distracted me enough that I wouldn’t recommend the audible version to anyone .

suspenseful, but not what I was expecting

it was a good listen. absolutely loved the narrator. but the way the story was tied up at the end was too hasty. it seemed like a last minute decision to pick the person that kidnapped Charlie. the motive was unclear. but the suspense was there till the end. worth a listen, and you probably won't guess who did it.

Performance should have 20 stars!

I know without a shadow of a doubt that anything read by Imogen Church will be a smashing success! This was no exception. Nicki French spun an intriguing tale of suspense with rich characters set in a sea mist landscape. I only wish it had been longer.... I didn't want it to end. Add this to your list!

Very wordy. A disappointment.

Oh Nicci..... Did you run out of plot and have to fill it with lengthy descriptions of who was at the party (repeated several times) as well as other lengthy descriptions of articles in Charlie’s rooms (again repeated many times)? I am a long-time follower of this author and have enjoyed all her books but was very disappointed with this one. Add to that and hysterical, over the top script written for the mother. I understand the pain and horror of trying to find a missing daughter but some of this behavior was not realistic.
