Publisher's Summary

Jenny Shepherd is twelve years old and missing….
Her teacher, Sarah Finch, knows better than most that the chances of finding her alive are diminishing with every day she is gone.
As a little girl her older brother had gone out to play one day and never returned. The strain of never knowing what has happened to Charlie had ripped Sarah’s family apart. Now in her early twenties, she is back living at home, trapped with a mother who drinks too much and keeps her brother’s bedroom as a shrine to his memory.
Then, horrifically, it is Sarah who finds Jenny’s body, beaten and abandoned in the woods near her home. As she’s drawn into the police investigation and the heart of a media storm, Sarah’s presence arouses suspicion too. But it not just the police who are watching her....

Not author's best work

I found the story weak and disliked the main character intensely. Although the narrator portrays some female characters well, she uses ridiculous voices for others which I found distracting. I'm afraid the male voices were even worse. I wouldn't recommend using a credit on this audio book.

Good Story.

Good story, with an unexpected twist in the tail, but really didn't like the narration with dreadful affected accents for many of the characters.
