Description

An enthralling debut thriller about a young woman's quest to uncover the truth of her identity.

Alice has lived all her life in a small town on the outskirts of Florida. Her mother is deeply religious and her upbringing has been strict but happy. But Alice has never truly felt that she belongs. And she's about to encounter a shocking revelation that will destroy the safety of her family enclave.

Rosie has always lived in the shadow of her sister, who disappeared when she was barely old enough to walk. After fifteen years with no news, the search is back on, and once again her family is thrown into the media limelight.

Two women, desperate to unlock the mysteries that have defined their lives. But how much will they sacrifice to finally lay the past to rest?

Review quote

"I ripped through it in no time at all ... the writing is wonderful and the storyline gripping. I can quite see why she won the competition!" * Lesley Kara, author of THE RUMOUR * "One of those thrillers in which it is almost impossible not to flick ahead. For me, this was a genuine gallop to the denouement." -- Alison Flood * Observer * "With well-judged interweaving narratives and plenty of rich description, this is an absorbing and promising debut." * Spectator, named best new crime novel for 2019 * "Skilfully-plotted debut... the journey to the truth is one of high tension." * Sunday Times Crime Club * "Provides a clever, unexpected solution, by way of some fine writing" * The Times *
