'A gripping new novel' HELLO! Magazine
The lives of teenage twins Maisy and Duncan change forever the night their sick mother is taken to an asylum. Sent to live in the New Forest with their cold-hearted grandmother, Mrs Mitcham, they feel unloved and abandoned.
And when one day Duncan doesn't come home from exploring in the forest, no one - least of all his grandmother - appears to care about his disappearance. The police, who've found the bodies of other missing boys, offer little hope of finding Duncan alive.
Yet Maisy refuses to give up. Though she doesn't know the woods well, she knows someone who does. The strange old woman who lives at their heart.
Dare Maisy enlist the help of the woman in the wood?

Kept me wanting more, great read. Made me feel I was there watching the story unfold.
This book had a silly storyline I used to like her books but doubt I would read another one
Same old same old
I use to love her books and they are good easy reading, however this one seemed a little predictable and not as well thought out as some of the others. They all have the same kind of story line (rape, torture, more rape, lost love or betrayal, bad parents etc!).
Don't think I will buy another one as it's getting boring reading the similar story line.
