Publisher Description

‘I LOVED it… A fast-paced, tense and twisty read.’ 5 stars, NetGalley reviewer

It's one year since her sister vanished. Now, another girl is missing…

One year ago, Amelia Taylor’s sister, Lark, disappeared from a family holiday in the Scottish Highlands.

The police are convinced that Lark was abducted, but with no new leads, the case has gone cold. Amelia is certain the answer lies at the holiday cottage and she returns to the place where her sister went missing.

But during her second night at the cottage a shrill scream cuts through the darkness, just as it did a year ago, and a sense of dread engulfs everyone.

Another girl has vanished.

Leading the search, Amelia is convinced that both girls are alive, waiting to be found. But someone is determined to keep her from the truth at all costs…

Will Amelia be able to find her sister, or is she too about to find herself in danger?

Fans of Ruth Ware’sThe Turn of the Key and Martyn Ford’s Every Missing Thing will love Amanda Brittany!

All I can say is that this is one of the best and most suspenseful, well written books I’ve read in a very, very long time.
You will never figure this one out.
The last pages will have you gasping….
Eerie locations, thoroughly well developed characters and a story that is brilliantly well thought out and beautifully written.
The narration is perfect, the performance is exceptional as is the story.
A definite yes.
