Here and Gone

Haylen Beck

'A brilliant, relentless rollercoaster of suspense that shreds your emotions' PETER JAMES

Audra has finally left her abusive husband. She’s taken the family car and her young children, Sean and Louise, are buckled up in the back. This is their chance for a fresh start.

Audra keeps to the country roads to avoid attention and finds herself on an empty road in Arizona, far from home. She's looking for a safe place to stay for the night when she spots something in her rear-view mirror. A police car is following her and the lights are flickering. Blue and red.

As Audra pulls over she is intensely aware of how isolated they are. Her perfect escape is about to turn into a nightmare beyond her imagining…

Dark secrets and a heart-pounding race to reveal the truth lie at the heart of this page-turning thriller.

‘An almost unbearably tense nail-biter of a novel. Cancel all your plans and settle in for the ride…’ RUTH WARE

‘Packed with smart twists and unforgettable characters, Here and Gone is one of the best debuts of the year. Highly recommended’ HARLAN COBEN
