Steph has vanished with her newborn baby. Fearing for their safety, her husband Adam and sister Jess try and work out what has driven a seemingly happy Steph to the edge.
Jess is convinced that Adam is hiding something. Is he telling the truth about the state of his relationship with her sister? But Jess is holding back secrets too and starts to delve into their troubled childhood, hoping to discover a reason for her sister’s disappearance.
The main story is told from Jess’s point of view, interspersed with Adam’s POV and Steph’s diary entries. As the truth starts to unravel, Jess realises she doesn’t know her big sister as well as she thought she did.
This is a gripping thriller which left me quite anxious halfway through! The reasons and resolutions to Steph’s problems run much deeper than the average thriller. There is much to admire in this well-written debut.
This is my honest review in return for an advanced copy.
