Emma Healey is the author of the astonishing bestseller Elizabeth is Missing, and her new novel, Whistle in the Dark is out in paperback this January.

Meet Jen: mother to 15-year-old Lana - who goes missing for four agonising days in the Lake District. When Lana is found, unharmed, in the middle of the desolate countryside, everyone thinks the worst is over. But Lana refuses to tell anyone what happened, and the police think the case is closed. The once-happy, loving family returns to London, where things start to fall apart. Lana begins acting strangely: refusing to go to school, and sleeping with the light on.

With her daughter increasingly becoming a stranger, Jen is sure the answer lies in those four missing days. But will Lana ever reveal what happened?

Whistle in the Dark is a compelling, modern family drama exploring the trials of mother-daughter relationships and the painful reality of mental health issues. 

To tie in with the setting of the book, we’re offering a reader the chance to escape to the beautiful Lake District and spend a night for two at Storrs Hall. The breath-taking setting on the shores of Windermere offers stunning lake views and seventeen acres of private grounds surround this Grade II listed Georgian mansion house.

The winner will receive one night’s stay in the stylish Junior Suite, which includes dinner for two.
