Publisher's summary

A 2022 Audie Award Finalist

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone comes “her best thriller yet” (Harlan Coben, New York Times bestselling author) about a young couple’s disappearance on a gorgeous summer night, and the mother who will never give up trying to find them.

On a beautiful summer night in a charming English suburb, a young woman and her boyfriend disappear after partying at the massive country estate of a new college friend.

One year later, a writer moves into a cottage on the edge of the woods that border the same estate. Known locally as the Dark Place, the dense forest is the writer’s favorite place for long walks and it’s on one such walk that she stumbles upon a mysterious note that simply reads, “DIG HERE.”

Could this be a clue towards what has happened to the missing young couple? And what exactly is buried in this haunted ground?

“Utterly gripping with richly drawn, hugely compelling characters, this is a first-class thriller with heart” (Lucy Foley, New York Times bestselling author) that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Critic reviews

"Froggatt works to bring distinctive voices to the key players and is particularly effective at voicing Kim, who is now caring for her grandson because her daughter has disappeared. She also shifts effortlessly to the posh accents of the wealthy neighbors. Jewell provides listeners with appealing and well-rounded personalities and atmospheric settings. This thriller will keep listeners engaged." (AudioFile Magazine)

Oh my… gave me chills

I’m already a fan of Ms. Jewell but she really outdid herself on this book. I enjoyed every single moment!
This is a mystery, heavily character driven as is her signature style.
It very much sets her books apart from others ,especially in this genre, which has a tendency to be made up of very one dimensional ppl.
Also, I need a book that not only entertains me but makes me feel something. This one has all of those feels. For me , this is an example of a book that ticks all of the boxes.
It’s very hard to just rewrite the blurb because the book is so much more. Sometimes it’s better to just dive in. As described it is a missing persons story of which there are many ,but as I said, that doesn’t do it justice. I don’t think a synopsis from me would really help you decide. If you like her style of writing you will love this book.
Now the wait until the next one!

Love Lisa Jewell!

Great story! Narration by Joanne Froggat brought the story to life. This was heartwarming and disturbing at the same time. The type of story that keeps me buying every Lisa Jewell audible book. Perfect timing for a good book, and a much needed escape from life.

Confusing ridiculous story

The story jumps around so much that it was extremely difficult to track, especially as an audiobook. It continually jumps between time periods and characters yet the narrator was always the same so if you missed that one chapter transition you had no idea where you were. The ending felt like the author was under time pressure to tie up the story and came up with just a ridiculous ending. I finished it but only because I’m in bed with a broken foot and had nothing else to do.

Great characters and suspense

This latest Lisa Jewell book is great. Like most of her books, it flips from present day back and forth to the recent past, but it is easy to follow. It has great development of characters and their relationships. It has great suspense as what happened is gradually revealed. It will hold your interest until the end. And it wraps up every thread of the story. I highly recommend this book.

Lisa Jewell does it again!

Lisa Jewell's books always hooks readers from the beginning and build immensely. The Night She Disappeared was no exception! Definitely one of her best books yet, her newest novel leaves readers wanting more. I have read just about all of her books and personally can't wait for another. If you've never read her books before, I high recommend this one. If you like this one, you will love her other work too!

Fantastic narration

Well done all around. Finally a reader who can do multiple voices without it being cringe.
