'Reads like Liane Moriarty at her Big Little Lies best' TONY PARSONS
'A gripping thriller about toxic female friendships with a killer twist' CLAIRE DOUGLAS
'Kept me up late into the night...' LUCY CLARKE
Grace's best friend Anna is missing.
She would never leave her husband and son by choice and Grace is beside herself with worry.
As Grace searches desperately for answers, everyone seems to have a different version of the truth.
Why won't Anna's husband call the police?
What secrets are the other mothers at the school gate hiding?
With each day that passes, Anna's life is under increasing threat.
The pressure is mounting and it will not be long before something cracks.
'The story of Anna and Grace's friendship and Anna's disappearance is compelling in its own right, but the real triumph emerges from Perks's skill as seeing some women for exactly who they are and what they're capable of' DAILY MAIL
