AN INTENSE, CLEVER, GRIPPING THRILLER FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE PERFECT LIE

"Clever twists and cracking dialogue make it hard to put down" The Times

********

It's June 2008 and twenty-one-year-old Adam Lattimer vanishes, presumed dead. The strain of his disappearance breaks his already fragile family.

Ten years later, with his mother deceased and siblings scattered across the globe, Adam turns up unannounced at the family home. His siblings return reluctantly to Spanish Cove, but Adam's reappearance poses more questions than answers. The past is a tangled web of deceit.

And, as tension builds, it's apparent somebody has planned murderous revenge for the events of ten years ago.

********

For even more Jo Spain, check out her most exciting and thrilling work yet, The Perfect Lie.

Discover DI Tom Reynolds in the first instalment of Jo Spain's acclaimed detective series, With Our Blessing.
