Charlotte is looking after her best friend’s daughter the day she disappears. She thought the little girl used to be playing with her own children. She swears she only took her eyes off them for a second.
Now, Charlotte will have to do the unthinkable: tell her best friend Harriet that her only child is missing. The child she used to be meant to be watching.
Devastated, Harriet can no longer bear to see Charlotte. No one could expect her to believe her friend again.
Only now she needs to. Because two weeks later Harriet and Charlotte are both being questioned one at a time by the police. And secrets are about to surface.
Someone is hiding the truth.
So what in reality happened to Alice?
Unputdownable psychological suspense from an exciting new talent, perfect for fans of Shari Lapena’s THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR and Clare Mackintosh’s I LET YOU GO.
