Description-

  • The No. 1 ebook bestseller, Sunday Times Top 10 bestseller and USA Today bestseller The real nightmare starts when her daughter is returned... A girl is missing. Five years old, taken from outside her school. She has vanished, traceless. The police are at a loss; her parents are beyond grief. Their daughter is lost forever, perhaps dead, perhaps enslaved. But the biggest mystery is yet to come: one week after she was abducted, their daughter is returned. She has no memory of where she has been. And this, for her mother, is just the beginning of the nightmare. Perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, C. L. Taylor and Lucy Foley Praise for Alex Lake 'Relentlessly fast paced, a compelling plot and anxiety inducing finale. A cracking read' John Marrs, bestselling author of The One 'Opens with a nightmare scenario and races to a gripping, horribly tense ending – I think I actually stopped breathing several times. Loved it!' Jackie Kabler, bestselling author of The Perfect Couple 'With an unrelenting sense of urgency, this brilliant book will get under your skin. Great hook, fast-paced, fully engrossing. Don't miss out – read it now!' Sam Carrington, author of The Missing Wife 'This is creepy storytelling of the highest order: spine-chilling and difficult to put down' Daily Mail 'A superb read for suspense fans, this taut thriller will have you racing for the finish' Heat 'A gripping page turner' Closer 'The emotional rawness will take you to dark depths, but the journey towards that last flicker of hope is one you can't pull back from' Woman & Home 'Evocative writing and emotional rawness' Woman's Weekly 'A thoroughly entertaining, gripping read' Cass Green, bestselling author of In a Cottage In a Wood

  • Publisher's Weekly

    June 20, 2016
    Divorce attorney Julia Crowne, the heroine of this nail-biting psychological thriller from the pseudonymous Lake, a British novelist, arrives one afternoon at Westwood, a school somewhere in the U.K., to pick up her five-year-old daughter, Anna—but Anna isn’t there. Either the girl wandered off or she was kidnapped. A few days earlier, Julia asked her husband, Brian, in whom she has lost interest, for a separation. Once the story of Anna’s disappearance gets out, the press vilifies Julia, falsely labeling her as a negligent, mentally unstable adulterer who was planning on leaving her husband and daughter. A week later, the police receive a call from a newsagent, who says that a little girl has walked into his store claiming to be Anna. Once Anna returns home, the nightmare is far from over, and Julia’s life unravels even more. Alternating between the viewpoints of the abductor and the frantic, guilt-ridden Julia, Lake deftly exposes their deepest thoughts and maintains high suspense to the very end. Agent: Melissa Pimentel, Curtis Brown (U.K.).
