From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone comes another riveting work of psychological suspense about a beautiful young couple’s disappearance on a gorgeous summer night, and the mother who will never give up trying to find them...
On a beautiful summer night in a charming English suburb, a young woman and her boyfriend disappear after partying at the massive country estate of a new college friend.
One year later, a writer moves into a cottage on the edge of the woods that border the same estate. Known locally as the Dark Place, the dense forest is the writer’s favorite area for long walks and it’s on one such walk that she stumbles upon a mysterious note that simply reads, “DIG HERE.”
Could this be a clue towards what has happened to the missing young couple? And what exactly is buried in this haunted ground?
With her signature “rich, dark, and intricately twisted” (Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author) prose, Lisa Jewell has crafted a dazzling work of suspense that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the final page.
A solid 3 stars ⭐️ 🌟 ⭐️
Overall a good book that kept my interest throughout, but the ending was not as impressionable as some of Lisa Jewel’s other works. I am a big fan of Lisa Jewel! She write great mysteries usually involving a murder and/or abduction. Master of multiple POV-writing (which I love), you really empathize with the characters and are kept guessing as to who is the antagonist. There’s usually a twist or two, some suspense, and the action picks up at the end. This book hit all those marks and is solid. But, this isn’t my favorite and I found this to be more predictable than other books. I listened to the audiobook and found that the narrator was excellent which added a lot to the experience of digesting this book. I loved the varying accents used to differentiate the characters - funny and how I would portray them (if I could)!!
Fabulous 5 Star Novel
