'Compelling, unsettling and very creepy' Catherine Kirwan

'Atmospheric and filled with twists and turns ... a fantastic read' Patricia Gibney

Everyone is talking about the disappearance of Emma Harte.

A high-achieving university graduate and young entrepreneur, she was last seen in the early hours of the morning on grainy CCTV footage in Dublin's city centre before vanishing into thin air. While a national debate about women's safety rages, eyes turn to Emma's boyfriend, Tom - who is nowhere to be found.

Meanwhile, archivist James Lyster is following the story with undue interest. When a comment he makes about Emma goes viral on social media, he finds himself drawn into the world of a group of idealistic university students involved in the search - and attracting the attention of the police detective in charge of Emma's case.

Then a body is discovered in scrubland near James' flat ...

As the police get closer to finding out what happened to Emma Harte, James' life begins to unravel. Is he a victim or murderer? Feminist ally or callous liar?

For it turns out that James isn't the only one with secrets ...
