A SHOCKING DISAPPEARANCE. A VILLAGE FULL OF SECRETS.
Ten years ago, a boy named Samuel Murray went missing from the quiet village of Buckthorpe and was never seen again.
Rosie Sharpe cried over her missing friend for weeks after.
But her little sister Heather knows that Rosie’s tears hide the truth.
Because the night Samuel was last seen, Heather watched her older sister climbing back through the window of their childhood bedroom. Her jacket torn, her eyes wild and her body trembling with fear.
Heather never told anyone what she saw, but secrets can’t stay buried forever…
A decade later, Rosie and Heather return to the home they grew up in when their mother falls ill. But when their house is ransacked and they receive a threatening note, it becomes clear that someone in the close-knit village doesn’t want them there.
When Heather finally confronts her sister about what really happened on the dark, rainy night Samuel vanished, Rosie’s version of the truth is more shocking than she could ever have imagined. But can she trust her sister? And who broke into their house that night? As the lies of the past begin to unravel, they have the power to put the lives of both women in terrible danger…
This twist-filled, page-turning psychological thriller from the million-copy-bestselling author of Silent Child will keep you hooked until the final, jaw-dropping pages. Perfect for fans of Behind Closed Doors and The Girl on the Train.
What a gripping book this is! Right from the start we are compelled into the story, and it really is hard to put down.
The setting is so atmospheric, it really adds to the chilling plot. The isolation of the village, and the depiction of the dark woods that surround it, really make you feel that this is a place where bad things could happen.
The story is told from several points of view, which I really liked. The plot seems simple at first, and like Heather, I was sure I had it all figured out quite early on in the story. But I was so wrong! Despite changing my mind as the story progressed, a series of shocking twists and turns had me proven wrong.
Perfectly paced, and tightly woven, with superb characters, this is such an excellent psychological thriller. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
