A MISSING GIRL. A BURIED SECRET.
From the acclaimed author of I Found You and the Richard & Judy bestseller, The Girls, comes a compulsively twisty psychological thriller that will keep you gripped to the very last page."
"Both utterly gripping and startlingly original. Prepare to be hooked."
"I defy you to put this addictive book down until you reach the final heart-breaking page"
"What begins as a story about the mother of a missing girl starting a new relationship as she comes terms with her grief morphs into a gripping, disturbing and utterly fascinating tale about what really happened to young Ellie Mack. I've been a Lisa Jewell fan for a long time and in this book, as in all her others, she deftly weaves a compelling plot with an emotional depth that leaves you gasping. In Then She Was Gone she has created a book that is dark and claustrophobic but also heartfelt and moving. Then She Was Gone packs a huge emotional punch that will leave you winded. I loved it."
"A dark, compulsive psychological thriller, yet one which is also uplifting and tender. I absolutely loved Then She Was Gone."
"A tense clever page-tuner that everyone will be talking about."
"She has departed from her usual chick lit and gone full tilt into a psycho thriller, but she’s lost none of her brilliance. Indeed, I think this is my favourite of hers so far… Deeply emotional and incredibly clever. Bravo"
"Unnerving, and with a juicy reveal, this is rightly a modern classic"
"Jewell builds a gripping novel around a maze of dark secrets, a tautly wound psychological thriller in which the suspense builds slowly. Her storytelling is immaculate, hopping between past and present, and in and out of characters. It’s a tough read at times, but Jewell always keeps everything moving. The intrigue never flags as she pushed towards a redemptive resolution. As astute and emotionally charged read, riddled with creepiness. Fully recommended"
"Smart and engrossing"
