Description

One summer. One stranger. One killer...
Two bad things happened that summer:
A stranger arrived. And the first girl disappeared.

In the wake of the crime that rocked her community, Felicity fled, knowing more than she let on.

But sixteen years later, her new life is shattered by the news that a second girl has gone missing in her hometown.

Now Felicity must go back, to face the truth about what happened all those years ago.

Only she holds the answers - and they're more shocking than anyone could imagine.

The heatwave is back. And so is the killer.


Don't miss the hottest thriller of the summer - perfect for readers who loved The Holiday.
