Summary

As a teenager, Sarah D'Villez famously escaped a man who abducted and held her hostage for 11 days. The case became notorious, with Sarah's face splashed across the front of every newspaper in the country.

Seventeen years later, Sarah's attempt to build a normal life for herself in London has failed. When she hears of her kidnapper's impending release from prison, fearful of the media storm that is sure to follow, she decides to flee to rural Wales under a new identity, telling nobody where she's gone.

As Sarah settles in to her isolated new home and gets to know the small community she is now part of, it soon becomes creepily apparent that someone is watching her. Meanwhile, back in London, her mother makes a shocking discovery - something she fears will put Sarah's life in danger. She must urgently find her missing daughter before it's too late....

Exhausting and brilliant

Without giving anything away I pointed the finger of suspicion at everyone and was wrong. A very clever plot which had me gasping at every turn.

Amazing

Yup, a 5. This book, set in Wales, grabbed me at the beginning and didn 't let go. The rich cast of characters, the deft drawing of the country side, the unusual plot - the series of surprises that build to a staggering ending. No blood and guts just masterful writing that hoes boooooo.
