'Intriguing, compelling. Impossible to put down and irresistibly good' Liane Moriarty
She's the victim.
But is she so innocent?
Sophie McCarthy is known for her determination, ambition and brilliance at work. She's tough, but only because she wants to get the best out of people.
Aidan Ryan is strong, honourable, and a family man. He's tough too; the army requires it.
When these two strangers are brought together in a devastating incident, Sophie's life is left in ruins. Her family wants to see Aidan pay for what he did.
Aidan's prepared to sacrifice everything - including his marriage and his child - to fix the mess he's made.
But some things can't be fixed, and Sophie is not at all what she first appeared . . .
The Missing Pieces of Sophie McCarthy is a gripping, impossible-to-put-down exploration of betrayal and revenge.

What starts as an intricate, multi-narrator domestic drama slowly reveals its secrets to become something much darker indeed * Heat, The Twisty One *
An utterly compelling psychological suspense novel about ambition, revenge and family. The characters are complex and real, and I became so immersed in their worlds that I read the last two hundred pages in one sitting. With echoes of both Liane Moriarty and Charity Norman, I was fascinated by B.M. Carroll's dissection of two families pushed to breaking point. A completely gripping and emotional page-turner -- Lucy Clarke
Very well written and suspenseful with characters to believe in; it was deeply psychological and I thoroughly enjoyed it -- Lisa Ballantyne
