‘Hattie!’ Carrie called, an edge to her voice. ‘Hattie, this isn’t funny, come out now.’ Carrie tried calling, shouting, screaming, but everything in the dark woods was quiet. Her little sister was gone.
Detective Carrie Flynn’s sister Hattie was kidnapped when they were both little girls. After the police failed to find the culprit, Carrie swore she would become a detective and solve the case herself. But the face of the man who snatched Hattie is a blank in her memory…
Twenty years later, eleven-year-old Melanie Wilson is reported missing. Carrie fights off memories of her lost sister to concentrate on the case, but she soon finds footage of Melanie boarding a boat and vanishing. Who took little Melanie, and why?
Then the police receive a desperate cry for help from another young girl: I gave you his name, but you did nothing. My blood is on your hands. Carrie traces the call to the same docks where Melanie was last seen.
Carrie is sure the lost girls are in terrible danger – and that there’s a link between her sister’s disappearance and this case. To find Melanie, Carrie must unleash the memories she’s buried for years. And if she uses her own demons to bring Melanie home, can she finally find out what happened to her sister?
This absolutely unputdownable thriller will keep you up all night until you reach the final heart-stopping page! Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Val McDermid and Lisa Regan.

Second book in series great book
This is book two in the DI Carrie Flynn series. I read the first one a few months ago when it first came out and remembered there had been a back story that was briefly mentioned. In this book we learn more about the kidnap and murder of Carrie’s sister Hattie, twenty years earlier, Carrie had seen the face of the kidnapper, but she had blocked everything out from what happened back then.
Two families move to the island Pomona, both for different reasons, you would think your children would be safe on an island, wouldn’t you? So when eleven year old Melanie goes missing, DI Carrie Flynn is in charge, but it brings back memories for her, whenever a child goes missing she thinks of her sister.
There are quite a few threads in this story which all come together, although at times they are a little unbelievable, but then this is fiction, at times it’s quite complex. I wasn’t keen how the book seemed to rush to a quick ending, that sort of spoilt the whole thing for me. I know you want to tie up all loose ends. But that’s not always how life works.
The story is pretty well plotted and written, I like that the characters are starting to bond a bit more as we gradually get to know them. So look forward to book number three.
Thank you to #netgalley and #bookouture for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest, fair and unbiased review.
