Meg and her daughter Grace are the most beloved family in Ashford, the lynchpin that holds the community together.

So when Meg is found brutally murdered and her daughter missing, the town is rocked by the crime. Not least because Grace has been sick for years - and may only have days to live.

Who would murder a mother who sacrificed everything, and take a teenager away from the medication that could save her life? Everyone is searching for an answer, but sometimes the truth can kill you . . .

Review quote

Intriguing characters and a storyline that suddenly throws everything in the air, I was completely hooked by this book -- Heidi Perks Grips to the very last page - a tense, twisted tale in which nothing is quite as it seems * T.M. Logan * Cleverly written and full of twists and turns -- Jenny Quintana Chilling and compassionate in equal measure, Grace is Gone is an emotionally-charged thriller that kept me reading long into the night. While undoubtedly a superior suspense novel, Elgar also excels in laying bare the often fragile bonds of supposedly close-knit communities. When the ending comes, be prepared to pick your jaw up off the floor -- Caz Frear Emily Elgar's latest psychological thriller takes dark twists and turns before arriving at a suitably unsettling conclusion * Woman & Home * Full of intrigue, suspense and rising tension. A beautifully written, gripping, suspenseful read -- Karen Hamilton What a book! A twisted story with such well-drawn characters. I grabbed every spare minute to finish it -- Jo Jakeman Enthralling . . . Twists and turns keep the reader guessing up to the satisfying ending. Along the way, Elgar wrestles with some engrossing ethical questions that will keep readers thinking long after they reach the end of the book * Publishers Weekly * I was completely gripped, horrified, nervous, suspicious . . . I think I felt ALL of the emotions while reading it This will haunt you long after you have finished the final page * Heat * Grace is Gone is an expertly-crafted psychological thriller, shot through with lingering questions about how blurred the gap between guilty and innocent can sometimes turn out to be * Living *
