Summary

The chilling new psychological thriller by Ben McPherson, author of A Line of Blood

A horrifying nightmare....

A summer camp for teens, on a beautiful island. It should have been a haven. But it soon becomes hell on earth when two men start shooting.

A country in shock.... 

The families gather, desperately hoping their children have survived. Some have their prayers answered. Some must confront their worst nightmare. A family that will never be the same again.... 

Cal and Elsa’s daughter Licia was on the island, but no one can find any trace of her. Delving into their daughter’s life, they uncover some shocking secrets. What really happened to Licia that day? Did she survive the shooting, or is she gone forever?

Good listen

I can’t say enjoyable as the subject matter doesn’t permit. But it was a good listen. Provided I concentrated on it being fictional. However, in my opinion, it is far too soon to so closely fictionalise such a recent, horrific and traumatic event.
