Summary

"Daddy has been lying."

Faye Townsend has planned the perfect summer trip for her family. But returning to the small seaside town her husband grew up in does not go to plan - the rain pours, and the long days become stifling. And then the unthinkable happens....

Her husband, Jake, and her six-year-old son, Dylan, go for an early morning walk along the beautiful, windswept clifftops. They don’t come back.

As the hours tick by, Dylan’s red baseball cap is found on the beach, and Faye finds herself being questioned by the police. They want to know everything about the man she married - is Faye ready to face her husband’s dark past? Or will she have to confront her own secrets first?

And just how far will a mother go to save her only child?

From the million-copy best-selling author of The Secret Mother and The Perfect Family, this utterly gripping psychological thriller will make you gasp out loud as you race toward the unforgettable twist. If you loved The Girl on the Train and The Wife Before You this book is for you.

Utter rubbish

I bought this after reading the excellent reviews. I can't believe they were listening to the same book. It was utter drivel. I wanted to stop listening after about 1/3 of the way in and realising that nothing was happening but I kept listening due to the reviews. There are no unpredictable twists. It is totally dull, the characters are not likeable or well developed. The story is boring and predictable. Child and husband disappear, oh surprise, the wife knows more than she let's on. Narrator is average.
Do not bother. Total and utter waste of life.
Most of the book is pointless padding leading you to the big revelation at the end. Which isn't.

The plot was very poor

The book started out with good possibilities. However the story was badly developed. The plot was poor.
