Two siblings, both missing for 20 years turn up within one day of each other. One dead. One alive.
It was an ordinary school day, the day I lost my little brother.
One moment he was on the roundabout and then was gone. Gone. Missing.
They all blamed me. I was in charge. Even though I was only ten years old.
They sent me away. The hurt, the shame, the questions. The not knowing.
I tried to move on.
It’s been nineteen years in exile and now somebody wants me back.
Someone with a dark secret. They hold the keys, they know the truth.
So, I need to return to the Welsh village of my childhood to find out who, because I have a secret, too…
I did something bad.
Diane Saxon’s standalone thriller is sure to plunge you into the dark world of secrets and lies.
Another gripping thriller from Diane Saxon!
As a little girl of ten, Caryn Peeke spends a LOT of her time caring for her younger brother Lloyd. One rainy day when they are at the playpark, Lloyd goes missing; and if that isn’t bad enough, their parents blame Caryn and she is sent away to live with her grandmother. Almost twenty years later, Caryn has received envelopes from someone who knows where her brother is and she has to head back to her home village to find out if it’s true – and discover who sent the notes. But Caryn is also harbouring a secret of her own . . .
Despite not being a big fan of missing children books, I downloaded this one on publication day as I know how well Diane Saxon writes and couldn’t wait to read her latest. This is another gripping and thoroughly mesmerising tale from the pen (laptop?) of an author who really knows how to keep readers on the edge of their seat! I was never quite sure where this was going, but it was a novel which kept me hooked right to the very last. Overflowing with terrific characters, this is an awesome read which I’m more than happy to recommend and give five glowing stars.
I downloaded this ebook via Kindle Unlimited; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
