Review quote

A dark, compulsive psychological thriller, yet one which is also uplifting and tender. I absolutely loved Then She Was Gone. -- Rachel Rhys, author of Dangerous Crossing 9733 What begins as a story about the mother of a missing girl starting a new relationship as she comes terms with her grief morphs into a gripping, disturbing and utterly fascinating tale about what really happened to young Ellie Mack. I've been a Lisa Jewell fan for a long time and in this book, as in all her others, she deftly weaves a compelling plot with an emotional depth that leaves you gasping. In Then She Was Gone she has created a book that is dark and claustrophobic but also heartfelt and moving. Then She Was Gone packs a huge emotional punch that will leave you winded. I loved it. -- CL Taylor, author of The Escape, The Lie and The Missing I defy you to put this addictive book down until you reach the final heart-breaking page * Daily Express * Both utterly gripping and startlingly original. Prepare to be hooked. * Sun * A MISSING GIRL. A BURIED SECRET.
