  • "I defy you to put this addictive book down until you reach the final heart-breaking page"

    Daily Express
  • "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."

    CL Taylor, author of The Escape, The Lie and The Missing
  • "A dark, compulsive psychological thriller, yet one which is also uplifting and tender. I absolutely loved Then She Was Gone."

    Rachel Rhys, author of Dangerous Crossing 9733
  • "A tense clever page-tuner that everyone will be talking about."

    Adele Parks
  • "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"

    Mail Online
  • "Unnerving, and with a juicy reveal, this is rightly a modern classic"

    Grazia
  • "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"
