    I must admit when I first started this book as a lot of books they do the prologue which then leaves you dangling for what seems like a very long time, I found myself longing to know what happened you will see what I mean, it does infact come together and brilliantly too, its very clever and well written these two girls have a second chance in life but like most things the past does infact catch up with them in the most bizarre way very gripping well read loved every minute highly recommend this book.

    It has waited seven years for someone to come back to the rambling lakeside house called Pinecrest, which has stood empty since its last owner went missing. For upscale Chicago couple Dan and Merrill Brewster, the old midwestern manse is an ideal retreat, and for their kids, Eric and Marci, it's the perfect place to spend a lazy summer exploring.

    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, she just thinks he has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.
