Gone Astray is a tense psychological thriller from debut novelist Michelle Davies.
When Lesley Kinnock buys a lottery ticket on a whim, it changes her life more than she could have imagined....
Lesley and her husband, Mack, are the sudden winners of a £15 million EuroMillions jackpot. They move with their 15-year-old daughter, Rosie, to an exclusive gated estate in Buckinghamshire, leaving behind their ordinary lives - and friends - as they are catapulted into wealth beyond their wildest dreams.
But it soon turns into their darkest nightmare when, one beautiful spring afternoon, Lesley returns to their house to find it empty: their daughter, Rosie, is gone.
DC Maggie Neville is assigned to be Family Liaison Officer to Lesley and Mack, supporting them while quietly trying to investigate the family. And she has a crisis threatening her own life - a secret from the past that could shatter everything she's worked so hard to build.
As Lesley and Maggie desperately try to find Rosie, their fates hurtle together on a collision course that threatens to end in tragedy....

Tense, spine chilling and full of suspense. I just wanted to keep listening to find out what happened next. Wonderfully narrated. Highly recommended
One of the best narrators I have heard to date! Distinguishable character voices with a superb range of believable regional accents. First class.
Great storyline, well written.
kept me interested throughout. Lots of twists and turns. Ended a bit suddenly though and I had some unanswered questions. but a good listen overall.
The narrater was ecellant and thought she embraced the feel of the book well done !
Rough cut, unrefined
This audio book did not really work for me. Had to constantly remind myself that a young girl was missing to help suppress a lot of irritation caused by the dialogue. All the characters seemed unlikeable but not in an entertaining way. As mentioned in the title plenty crying by just about everybody. What an awful sister Maggie has! I had hoped for some likable traits to emerge but no.
