When a stranger asks Jo Blackmore for a lift, she says yes, then swiftly wishes she hadn't. The stranger knows Jo's name; she knows her husband, Max, and she's got a glove belonging to Jo's two-year-old daughter, Elise. What begins with a subtle threat swiftly turns into a nightmare as the police, social services and even Jo's own husband turn against her. No one believes that Elise is in danger. But Jo knows there's only one way to keep her child safe - run.

Another cracker from C L Taylor

Yet another fantastic standalone novel from C L Taylor. Captivating characters, twists and turns- this is on a par with The Missing. Loved it. Wonderful narration as well. If you like Taylor's previous novels you'll love this one too.
