Gillian McAllister’s books are always addictive and clever. She researches well to bring a story alive and always includes plenty of twists and red herrings to provide an atmosphere of suspense and intrigue.

Whilst this isn’t my favourite of Gillian’s books (How to Disappear still holds that honour!) it was clever and entertaining. The twists were well written and although I had guessed most of the direction this was going in, the intrigue is often in the clever storytelling and Gillian is the queen of this!

It’s not possible to fully review this without revealing a key element of the storyline – but suffice to say that -part- was frustrating. There are also a few perspectives in this novel and characters to follow – it takes concentration, but stick with it, it’s worth the read.

About the Book

22 years old.
Last seen on CCTV, entering a dead-end alley.
And not coming back out again.
Missing for one day and counting . . .

Julia is the detective heading up the case. She knows what to expect. A desperate family, a ticking clock, and long hours away from her husband and daughter. But Julia has no idea how close to home it’s going to get.

Because there’s a man out there. And his weapon isn’t a gun, or a knife: it’s a secret. Her worst one.

He tells her that her family’s safety depends on one thing: Julia must NOT find out what happened to Olivia – and must frame somebody else for her murder . . .
