Publisher's Summary

Rory is waiting at the door of the preschool - a painted picture of his mother, Susan, in his small hand. But Susan isn’t going to see the picture, because she has vanished.

Susan Wheeler is a devoted mother. She would do anything for her three children. She drops them off and picks them up every single day. Until one day when Susan kisses them goodbye and then never comes to pick them up.

Susan’s mother, Mary, is worried. Susan is recently divorced and has been finding things hard recently, but she loves her kids - she’d never leave them.

Susan’s sister, Clare, is furious. It’s just like her to go missing. It’s not the first time, either. Susan has always been a troublemaker. Always seeking attention. She knows Susan has been lying to the family for years. And she knows that Susan has been sneaking out of her family home for weeks....

As the hours turn into days, even Clare becomes fearful for Susan. And, when Mary discovers Susan’s diary, she begins to uncover a dark secret from her childhood. Something no one in the family knew. When the final diary entry leads the police to a man who is discovered dead in a local park, they’re left wondering whether Susan has vanished because she is a victim. Or because she is a suspect....

An explosively compelling crime thriller from best-selling author Carla Kovach - if you love Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza, or Clare Mackintosh, you’ll love Her Dark Heart.

Another Excellent Read

I am truly a fan of Carla's writing. She gets into each character seamlessly with no tedious unnecessary background as some authors tend to do. Her plot is well thought out and goes from chapter to chapter smoothly.

I look forward to her next book.

Changed narrator

After 4 books with the same narrator they changed it for this book and it pretty much ruined it for me. The voice is everything in an audio book.

Good suspense

This one has the basic story line she used in all 5 books. They were all great to listen and was glad she finally dealt with her own grief. It was getting redundant. I would recommend all the books in the correct order. I will listen again in the future.

Different narrator

I hate that they switched narrators. I love both narrators, but it’s not the same when you’ve heard one narrator for several books in the same series, and suddenly everyone sounds different and the intonation is different.
