Publisher Description

'If there has been a better mystery suspense story written in this decade, I can't think of it' STEPHEN KING

________________________

Apologies for the general email, but I desperately need your help.

My goddaughter, Coco Jackson, disappeared from her family's holiday home in Bournemouth on the night of Sunday/Monday August 29/30th, the bank holiday weekend just gone. Coco is three years old.


When identical twin Coco goes missing during a family celebration, there is a media frenzy. Her parents are rich and influential, as are the friends they were with at their holiday home by the sea.

But what really happened to Coco?

Over two intense weekends - the first when Coco goes missing and the second twelve years later at the funeral of her father - the darkest of secrets will gradually be revealed...

Taut, emotive and utterly compelling, THE DARKEST SECRET is an unputdownable 'ripped from the headlines' novel that you will want to talk about with everyone you know.

Terrible ending!

I really enjoyed this book to a point! Great mix of vile characters and quite clever “time jumps” sadly the ending was pretty disappointing! So many questions left unanswered and makes you feel abit cheated! So many things were hinted at throughout the story and pretty much all of them were never mentioned again?? Shame as it had me gripped for at least half of the story...
