Delving into the complex world of a missing teenager, Linskey nails the adolescent voice to uncover a dark trail of secrets, lies and betrayal. This is page-turning fiction with real heart * Isabel Ashdown *
Alice Teale Is Missing is my kind of book. With exemplary prose and relentless plotting, Linskey puts shocking small town secrets under the microscope with superb results. The fresh-faced Beth Winter and the misanthropic Lucas Black are a pairing that shouldn't work but absolutely do. Dogged and intuitive, they are beating heart of this story and I can't wait to see where Linskey takes them next. * MW Craven, bestselling author of The Puppet Show *
A brilliantly plotted, perfectly clued story of the dark power of terrible truths. Compulsive reading from page one. * Gytha Lodge, author of She Lies in Wait *
He just keeps getting better and better. I was gripped by this one. Hooks you in and doesn't let go. Strength in characterisation as always - I was sad to let this one go -- Luca Veste, author of The Six
