‘Atmospheric, mysterious and intense . . . It's a stunning psychological thriller’ C. L. Taylor, bestselling author of THE MISSING

Komméno Island, Greece: I don't know where I am, who I am. Help me.

A woman is washed up on a remote Greek island with no recollection of who she is or how she got there.

Potter’s Lane, Twickenham, London: Eloïse Shelley is officially missing.

Lochlan’s wife has vanished into thin air, leaving their toddler and twelve-week-old baby alone. Her money, car and passport are all in the house, with no signs of foul play. Every clue the police turn up means someone has told a lie…

Does a husband ever truly know his wife? Or a wife know her husband? Why is Eloïse missing? Why did she forget?

The truth is found in these pages…

    Really enjoyed this book. Beautifully written and I think quite an important book for many to read as it deals with a subject that is mostly ignored or misunderstood. I would definitely recommend as a good read. Looking forward to reading more books by this author.

    I thoroughly enjoyed how well I was able to get to know each of the characters in this book as the story progressed. The story unfolds and leads you through many difficult topics and situations that the reader can easily recognise and associate with to some degree.
