It was supposed to be my family’s promising new start, but then everything went very, very wrong…
When Julia Blythe moves to a small, sleepy town on the south coast with her husband Ewan and their two children, they all agree to put their past behind them. She’s offered her dream job at the local hospital, and the kids get a place at the friendly, red-brick village school – it’s perfect. No more threatening letters, no more twisted lies.
And how nice to meet her new colleague Nathan Sloan and his wife Storm, when picking up her children on their first day. Gracious and good-looking, the Sloans have a son in the same year and a close-knit circle of friends who welcome Julia and Ewan as if they’ve always known them.
But just as Julia is starting to relax into their new life, the unthinkable happens. A day trip to the coast ends in tragedy when her youngest child is reported missing. Her new friends crowd around to help – searching the desolate clifftops for a sign. But Julia can’t help but wonder if she’s once again placed her trust in someone deadly…
In a town this small, how could nobody see what happened? And who can she turn to when anyone around her could be telling lies? In running away to this new beginning, has Julia unknowingly put her family in even more terrible danger?
Utterly twisty and completely unputdownable. This insanely gripping page-turner from bestselling author Lucy Dawson is perfect for anyone who tore through Friend Request, Gone Girl and My Lovely Wife.
