Summary

Shortlisted for the British Book Awards, Crime Thriller of the Year, 2009.br> A Richard and Judy Summer Read selection. On the morning she will never forget, suburban teenager Cynthia Archer awakes with a nasty hangover and a feeling she is going to have an even nastier confrontation with her mom and dad. But when she leaves her bedroom, she discovers the house is empty, with no sign of her parents or younger brother Todd.
In the blink of an eye, without any explanation, her family has simply disappeared. Twenty-five years later Cynthia is still haunted by unanswered questions. Was her family murdered? If so, why was she spared? And if they're alive, why did they abandon her in such a cruel way?
Now married with a daughter of her own, Cynthia fears that her new family will be taken from her just as her first one was. And so she agrees to take part in a TV documentary revisiting the case, in the hope that somebody somewhere will remember something - or even that her father, mother or brother might finally reach out to her.
Then a letter arrives that makes no sense and yet chills Cynthia to the core. And soon she begins to realise that stirring up the past could be the worst mistake she has ever made.

Brilliant

I bought this book last weekend and my daughter started reading it before me. I eventually got my hands on it 2 days later. Loved the story - like all who did its - it was great. This is a really brilliant book and its not until near the very end that you find out the truth and even then there is a sting in the tail. Well worth the two evenings I spent reading it.

Disappointing

Felt quite let down. Intriguing premise but the story ending seemed to be cobbled together without much thought.

fast paced

You know you ve read too many mystery novels when you can figure out most of the story after just one clue. Even so the story still held my interest and Barclay does throw in a few surprises and a few unexpected twists along the way.

Most importantly, Barclay builds strong characters that you can t help but care about.
Then,once you ve gotten to know the characters,the clues start dropping, and the pace picks up. And once it does, there is just no putting this book down. A nice summer read
