Publisher's Summary

A little girl has been left for dead. And now my husband is missing. 

"I can give you a lift home," the man says. Little Alice tightens the zip of her big red coat. She’s unsure, but the walk will be cold and dark. "I’m not supposed to get in a stranger’s car." He forces a smile. "I’m not a proper stranger, am I?"

I return home to our beautiful house on a chilly winter evening expecting to find my handsome husband Richard waiting for me by the fire. We’re still so in love, and he always takes care of me: buying us this home in the little village where he grew up, making sure I settled in and made friends, and treating my teenage daughter like his own. There’s a bit of gossip about our age gap, but the death of his first wife years ago was so tragic that he still gets sympathetic looks. Everyone loves Richard.

He usually comes straight back from work. But tonight, our antique clock ticks on through the dark evening, with no sign of him. Then a knock at the door shatters my perfect life. A 12-year-old-girl, Alice from the village, has been found unconscious in the field behind our house. They say she was last seen getting into Richard’s car.

Now rumors are flying. As Alice fights for her life in the hospital, nobody will speak to me - and when they do it’s to ask if he didn’t hurt Alice, why hasn’t Richard come home?

I know that revealing my own darkest secret about Richard’s first wife could prove his innocence...but even if I do, he’s still missing. Is everyone right, and is my husband on the run? And will telling the truth about my past turn my own daughter against me and tear our lives apart for good?

Fans of The Girl on the Train, I Am Watching You, and Shari Lapena will adore this.

it was a great story

it was a great story that ended with a really amazing ending and I felt like I took a journey through the village and the people in it and the crisis that is the book! I would recommend it for somebody who wants to explore that world and what you think you know but you couldn't possibly know until all hell breaks loose!

great story!

there seem to be a weird sound behind the narrator's voice for half the book that was very distracting, and I wasn't a huge fan of the way the narrator did the little kid voice, but overall great performance, great book!

Amazing listen

What a thrilling book. The narration was a bit off and a bit slow. However, it was easily ignored to just go with the story.
So many twist snd turns it was very unpredictable but I love that there was good ending.
Love books that have a good ending. Amazing story and thrilling conclusion.

Small town mystery

Narration was terrific. Wait until 20 minutes or so into the story to judge. It's a good story. A second little story intermixed with the main one. So time goes back and to current, back and forth. I will look up more of her stories.

Great books except for all the extra filling

It reminded me of being in school and having to write a 300 words essay in which you could could sum up in less than a 100 words. So you write in a bunch of unnecessary filler words so you can reach the 300 words requirement. It would have made a great short story though.

It was OK

Started off quite interesting but it lost me half way. I didn't bond to the characters and didn't find much suspense in the plot.

Great narration

Loved the narrator, I think she did a really amazing job!

I really enjoyed the storyline, though I would agree it does have a lot of filler. A tad on the unreal side when you find out what actually happened, but overall I don't regret reading it.
