When three-year-old Olivia disappears, her mother, Maggie, refuses to leave the cottage, staring out at the turbulent sea and praying it didn’t claim her daughter’s life. Another mother watches proudly as her daughter starts school.
Jennifer has loved Hailey for five years, but the child is suddenly moody, and there’s a niggling worry that Jennifer cannot shake off.
Time is running out for Maggie and also for Jennifer and Hailey. No one can underestimate a mother’s love for her child, and no one can predict the lengths one will go to to protect her family.
"I couldn't put it down. The Cold Cold Sea is gripping from the first page until the last. Unsettling and disturbing, the actions of the all too human characters lead to a devastating and tense climax. Highly recommended." (Rebecca Muddiman)
"Breathtaking and utterly compelling.... Linda's narrative voices are flawless and the rhythm of her prose is pitch perfect." (Debi Alper)
"There is no way to avoid the cliché: I could not put this novel down! Disturbing and compelling...a psychologically astute, edge-of-the-seat story." (Hilary Johnson)
