MEDIA REVIEWS
It is gripping and full of emotion . . . yet the twist at the end makes you question your assumptions, and really makes you think about the nature of a mother-daughter relationship and how different it can be from each side of the coin * Jessica Eames, author of Bad Seed *
We absolutely loved this book. It's about a GP and her family and the sudden horror that devastates their lives when their 16-year-old daughter disappears one night. It's difficult to believe that this accomplished book is a debut * Judy Finnigan, Richard and Judy book club *
Ostensibly a suspense novel about the disappearance of a teenage girl, this taut and thought-provoking debut novel explores a working mother's guilt, something all-too familiar to many of us * Woman & Home *
Thrilling, yet written with depth and subtlety, and tender insight into parental love * Tessa Hadley *
Complex and baffling. Jane Shemilt builds layer upon layer of tension in a novel you won't be able to put down * TESS GERRITSEN *
Gripping to the last page! * My Weekly *
Thrilling * Sunday Express *
Clever * Sun *
Taut and thought-provoking * Sunday Mirror *
Utterly gripping. A tautly coiled spring of suspicion and suspense which builds to a devastating ending * Mail On Sunday *
A wonderful plot, full of tantalising reasons to read on, and of course with a killer twist at the end. What impressed me most was (. . .) the impossibility of truly knowing those closest to us, the pressures of parenthood - in particular working motherhood, and the terrible loss at the heart of all parenting: they grow up and away * Christopher Wakling, author of What I Did *

“Good Read”

I read this all the way through in one sitting and I really enjoyed it. I really liked the lead character, Jenny but felt her family were undeserving of her. Even her own best friend's daughter kept putting... More
