'Topical and desperately urgent. I absolutely loved it!' DANIEL COLE, author of RAGDOLL

'As dark and gritty as it is pacy and original' JANICE HALLETT, author of THE APPEAL

To save your child you must open The Box...

Ed Truman's family is falling apart. His daughter Ally is being targeted by an alt-right incel organisation, Men Together. His house is being picketed, former clients are accusing him of sexual assault, his son won't speak to him. And then Ally disappears.

Frantic, Ed suspects that Men Together have abducted her. But before he can go to the police, his DNA is found on the body of a young woman. Suddenly he's the subject of a nationwide manhunt, led by the tenacious DCI Jackie Rose. Ed finds himself on the run with Ally's friend, Phoenix, who claims to know where Ally is. But what is the truth? Is Ed a violent sexual predator? Or is he the victim of a ruthless conspiracy? The answers are in The Box. But not everyone who goes in, comes out alive...

From the bestselling author of The Regret, this heart-pounding thriller is perfect for readers of Harlan Coben, Mark Billingham and M.W. Craven.

Review quote

Sees a relatable and seemingly ordinary family thrown into a very topical and desperately urgent story. I absolutely loved it! -- Daniel Cole, author of Ragdoll As dark and gritty as it is pacy and original. So vivid, real and *now* I had to keep telling myself it's fiction. A Clockwork Orange for the twenty-first century -- Janice Hallett, author of The Twyford Code An intelligent, breathless read - has you questioning everything. Hard hitting and thrilling -- Deborah Masson, author of the DI Eve Hunter series A brilliant, pacy thriller that hits the ground running and never lets up! I raced through it in a day... Highly recommended! -- Guy Morpuss, author of Five Minds Superb. My favourite book of the year so far -- Keri Beevis, author of The People Next Door A wrong-man thriller so nightmarish and intense that it should come with a health warning -- Matt Thorne
