Publisher's Summary

Apologies for the general email, but I desperately need your help. My goddaughter, Coco Jackson, disappeared from her family's holiday home in Bournemouth on the night of Sunday/Monday, August 29/30, the bank holiday weekend just gone. Coco is three years old.
When identical twin Coco goes missing during a family celebration, there is a media frenzy. Her parents are rich and influential, as are the friends they were with at their holiday home by the sea. But what really happened to Coco?
Over two intense weekends - the first when Coco goes missing and the second 15 years later, at the funeral of her father - the darkest of secrets will gradually be revealed....
Taut, emotive and utterly compelling, a pause-resisting, 'ripped from the headlines' novel that you will want to talk about with everyone you know.

Unputdownable thriller that I couldn't leave alone. Some of the basic set up is borrowed from a real case but that made it even more engrossing. Haven't raced through anything this fast since the Girl on the Train, would have been done in a day if I wasn't at work! Excellent story and narrator, I eagerly await the next story from either.

The narrator makes this.

Good, solid family secrets type novel about a missing child, if a little bit predictable. Borrows heavily from some of the better known real life missing children cases. Pretty engaging though.

The narrator is excellent, especially when performing the dialogue of the children. I've had several books ruined by narrators over playing children, but in this one the performance was spot on.
