• It is gripping and full of emotion . . . yet the twist at the end makes you question your assumptions, and really makes you think about the nature of a mother-daughter relationship and how different it can be from each side of the coin

    Jessica Eames, author of Bad Seed
  • We absolutely loved this book. It's about a GP and her family and the sudden horror that devastates their lives when their 16-year-old daughter disappears one night. It's difficult to believe that this accomplished book is a debut

    Judy Finnigan, Richard and Judy book club
  • Ostensibly a suspense novel about the disappearance of a teenage girl, this taut and thought-provoking debut novel explores a working mother's guilt, something all-too familiar to many of us

    Woman & Home
  • Thrilling, yet written with depth and subtlety, and tender insight into parental love

    Tessa Hadley
  • Complex and baffling. Jane Shemilt builds layer upon layer of tension in a novel you won't be able to put down

  • Gripping to the last page!
