Publisher's Summary

I stare at the newspaper article about a baby snatched from the back of a car 30 years ago and wonder why someone would post it through my door. Looking closer, my blood freezes. The little girl in the photo has an unusual scar - just like mine. I’ve never met anyone with one like it. Is this stolen child...me?

Trembling with shock, I know I have to confront my mother. My parents got me through a horrific accident, helped me find a job I love teaching art, and even with buying my own house. But was it all built on lies? 

She tells me the day I was born was the best day of her life, and I’m flooded with guilt for questioning her - but why do I catch her burning papers in the garden the next day?

Then I come home to find a woman sitting on my doorstep, covered in bruises and claiming she knows who abducted me. I don’t know if I can trust her - or if I’ll be the next to get hurt.

Because all the while, I’ve been hiding my own secret. Does whoever sent the article know what really happened the day of my accident? Desperate for the truth, I break into the house of my supposed kidnapper. Inside, I find a handwritten list of names. A shiver goes down my spine as I realise wasn’t the only child to be stolen.

Then I hear a key in the lock, and I know my life is in terrible danger....

An absolutely addictive story that will have you racing through and questioning everything you thought you knew about your family. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Lisa Jewell and Shari Lapena.

Not a gripping psychological thriller

Interesting storyline that was kind of flat. Loved the narrator. Kind of slow and plodded along. I personally did not find this to be a gripping psychological thriller. There were no surprises and the ending was pretty obvious from the beginning. The protagonist Hope wondered who was telling the truth but it was obvious to the reader. I could not see the need for Angel in the book as she really added nothing to the storyline. I thought there would be a twist at the end but there wasn't.

Great suspense story!

Loved the story. It keeps you guessing right up to the end. Begs the question, "What makes a parent?"

Suspenseful 5 Star ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

The drama is Intense. The story will grab you from the start. You will not want to stop listening, the mystery will Grow and Grow as the story unfolds. The story is A little Crazy and A little Scary, has Awesome Suspense & Mystery, with a little Sadness mixed in. Great characters you will never guess who did what and why.... Very Clever Plot...
Will make you appreciate your Mom. ❤
Narrator was Awesome. 👍
