She doesn't know where she is nor who it is feeding her, talking to her, threatening to kill her. Yet Abbie has courage and, above all, hope. She escapes her captor and runs back into the light. But the real world, the safe one, isn't as she remembers it. There are days missing before she disappeared; days when she quit her job and left her boyfriend, did things she can't explain to the police, her friends, or even herself. Why won't anyone take her story seriously? Because if Abbie can't convince anybody that it really happened, then maybe he will come for her again. And she will wake in the dark, hooded and bound.

"A rollercoaster of a read...leaves you emotionally exhausted, desperate to reach the conclusion but reluctant to let the thrill end." (Sunday Express)
I listened to all of the over three hours of recording in one session and was absolutely engrossed by the pace and content of the nightmarish story. It's almost unbearably frightening at times, especially for women listeners. The writing-style suits an audio version: helped by being very well-read by the narrator. Recommended

I love the Nicci French duo and I read this book years ago. Now I've just had it read to me and it was everything I remember- beautifully read!!
