Publisher's Summary

The Sunday Times number one best seller.

A missing girl. A buried secret.

From the acclaimed author of I Found You and the Richard & Judy best seller The Girls comes a compulsively twisty psychological thriller that will keep you gripped to the very last moment.

She was 15, her mother's golden girl.

She had her whole life ahead of her.

And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone.

Ten years on, Laurel has never given up hope of finding Ellie. And then she meets a charming and charismatic stranger who sweeps her off her feet.

But what really takes her breath away is when she meets his nine-year-old daughter.

Because his daughter is the image of Ellie.

Now all those unanswered questions that have haunted Laurel come flooding back.

What really happened to Ellie? And who still has secrets to hide?

Gripping story and great writing

The writing is top notch, really good. I would say it’s one of the best written stories I’ve listened to. Some stories can drag in places but this kept my interest up all the way through. Some of it is horrific, hard to listen to really cause it’s so life like. Narration really good too, there’s nothing worse than narrators not pulling different accents off, but this worked well!

I thought I’d twigged the ending about half way through, I was along the right lines but the unexpected twists mean I was far enough from guessing it all! I would recommend for anyone that likes this genre.

Gripping from star to finish

This book was both well written and well read. Lisa Jewell captured every character beautifully and of course Gabrielle’s different accents and voices completely brought the story to life.
This is one of those books that you just hate to finish because it was so good

Good but too easy to guess!

Good story but if you like a sophisticated thriller that keeps you guessing until the end you will not get that with this book. All in all though still a good story.

Super story and performance

Had me hooked from the start, I did more or less guess what was going on, but I thoroughly enjoyed hearing it all unravel. Great performance, perfect holiday listen for me.

Listened in one sitting !!!!!!

Clever, twisty, emotional with some exceptionally beautiful prose. Lisa Jewell has defied the trend and much like whiskey has matured beautifully. I feel I have grown up with her, if you were to read her earlier work then her last four/five novels its like looking at a picture of a sweet gap tooth kid and then meeting the beautiful wise woman she has become. The narrator is wonderful too ... I still remember her as Patricia Farnham in brookside :) buy this, keep it and relisten
