Nobody sees him. Nobody cares.

But when Saffyre goes missing from opposite his house on Valentine's Day, suddenly the whole world is looking at Owen.

  • An up-all-night gripping story with characters who feel as real as you and me. Lisa Jewell is the kind of writer you read twice – once as a breathless reader, to see how the story unfolds, and then again to try to work out how she makes it look so easy.
