Publisher's Summary

A little girl has been left for dead. And now my husband is missing. 

"I can give you a lift home," the man says. Little Alice tightens the zip of her big red coat. She’s unsure, but the walk will be cold and dark. "I’m not supposed to get in a stranger’s car." He forces a smile. "I’m not a proper stranger, am I?"

I return home to our beautiful house on a chilly winter evening expecting to find my handsome husband Richard waiting for me by the fire. We’re still so in love, and he always takes care of me: buying us this home in the little village where he grew up, making sure I settled in and made friends, and treating my teenage daughter like his own. There’s a bit of gossip about our age gap, but the death of his first wife years ago was so tragic that he still gets sympathetic looks. Everyone loves Richard.

He usually comes straight back from work. But tonight, our antique clock ticks on through the dark evening, with no sign of him. Then a knock at the door shatters my perfect life. A 12-year-old-girl, Alice from the village, has been found unconscious in the field behind our house. They say she was last seen getting into Richard’s car.

Now rumors are flying. As Alice fights for her life in the hospital, nobody will speak to me - and when they do it’s to ask if he didn’t hurt Alice, why hasn’t Richard come home?

I know that revealing my own darkest secret about Richard’s first wife could prove his innocence...but even if I do, he’s still missing. Is everyone right, and is my husband on the run? And will telling the truth about my past turn my own daughter against me and tear our lives apart for good?

Fans of The Girl on the Train, I Am Watching You, and Shari Lapena will adore this.

Great books except for all the extra filling

It reminded me of being in school and having to write a 300 words essay in which you could could sum up in less than a 100 words. So you write in a bunch of unnecessary filler words so you can reach the 300 words requirement. It would have made a great short story though.

Decent Thriller

This is a good solid thriller with appropriate twists and turns but there is nothing that really makes it a favourite listen for me. It kept me going for ten hours and I enjoyed it the supposed disappearance of the Husband the death of the child and the wife looking for answers. The twist at the end was good and made the listen worthwhile.

Ok

I am a fan of this author generally. However, this was not one of the best. I didn’t like any of the characters especially Maddie who was particularly insipid.

Really enjoyed it.

I’m new to Audible and, if the enjoyment I got from listening to this book is what I have to look forward to more of, I’m in. I expected to just be listening on my work commute bu t, I couldn’t leave it alone. Well worth a listen.

A great read

I was ready to give up at first as I just couldn't see where this story was going. I am glad I stuck with it as it really did evolve. My only confusion was why we kept going back in time. I couldn't make sense of the story line in her younger years and it still confuses me.
