Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

One missing boy.

Marissa Irvine arrives at 14 Tudor Grove, expecting to pick up her young son Milo from his first playdate with a boy at his new school. But the woman who answers the door isn't a mother she recognises. She isn't the nanny. She doesn't have Milo. And so begins every parent's worst nightmare.

Four guilty women.

As news of the disappearance filters through the quiet Dublin suburb and an unexpected suspect is named, whispers start to spread about the women most closely connected to the shocking event. Because only one of them may have taken Milo - but they could all be blamed....

In a community full of secrets, who is really at fault?

"A cracking read from a writer at the top of her game - and wow...that twist floored me!" (Claire Allan, author of Her Name Was Rose)

Really enjoyable

Ever so well narrated (lovely Irish accent) and a gripping, twisty, involving story.

I loved it and would recommend to anyone who enjoys domestic, psychological thrillers.

A good story with an excellent narrator

I was engaged with this story pretty much all the way through but I did think it got a bit unbelievable at the end. If you are prepared to suspend your disbelief, as I was, I found it an absorbing read and a bit different from the usual detective stuff.

It was very well read ... and I'm usually pretty fussy about narrators!

I liked it enough to look for another book by Andrea Mara but was put off by the reviews of other books by her because of the reviews of the other narrators. A real pity if an author ends up with someone who gets slammed in most of the reviews. Anyway, Jessica Regan was good and I enjoyed listening.

Very slow start

Firstly, the narration is very good. Secondly, overall the book is worth listening to. However, you really have to stick with it as bit takes a very, very long time to get to the plot!

A tale with a twist

Couldn’t stop listening to this. Please, anyone who decides to give up on this one, don’t. The ending is well worth hearing.

Wow! Loved it!

The narrator does a fantastic job of bringing this story to life. And what a story it is! Gripped from the very first page and right to the very last! Brilliant written, just the right amount of explanation without going into too much minute detail and realistic characters that you could easily get to know. I feel this book would make an excellent tv short series.

Really gripping

A really good plot with loads of twists. Was gutted when the story finished. Reminded me of big little lies in the character types. If your in to that youl enjoy it. The narrations nice and soothing.
