Summary

Meg and her daughter Grace are the most beloved family in Ashford, the lynchpin that holds the town together. So when Meg is found brutally murdered and her daughter missing, the community is rocked by the tragedy. Her daughter, Grace, has been sick for years and all Meg has ever done is look after her. Now Meg is dead, Grace is gone - and fears are growing for her life.

Who would kidnap a sick teenager? Who would murder a mother who sacrificed everything? As the community come to terms with what's happened, an unlikely pair start searching for answers: Jon, the most hated journalist in Ashford and Cara, the young woman who found Meg's body. But once they start digging into the past, they will soon realise there's no going back.

Slow starter

Took a while to get into the story
Liked the character Cara and the relationship between John and cara.
Nearly gave up and the beginning found it boring

Good story based on true story

I would have enjoyed this more but I hadn't realised it was based in true story I just happened to have listened to on true crime podcast a few months earlier. Because of this I knew all of the plot within the first chapter so the twists were spoilt a little for me. There are parts of the story that were changed which I felt a little unnecessary as it made it too fictional. The true story is 'unbelievable' enough to make a good novel. But overall this book is well-written and performed well.
