Description

‘Atmospheric, mysterious and intense . . . It's a stunning psychological thriller’ C. L. Taylor, bestselling author of THE MISSING

Komméno Island, Greece: I don't know where I am, who I am. Help me.

A woman is washed up on a remote Greek island with no recollection of who she is or how she got there.

Potter’s Lane, Twickenham, London: Eloïse Shelley is officially missing.

Lochlan’s wife has vanished into thin air, leaving their toddler and twelve-week-old baby alone. Her money, car and passport are all in the house, with no signs of foul play. Every clue the police turn up means someone has told a lie…

Does a husband ever truly know his wife? Or a wife know her husband? Why is Eloïse missing? Why did she forget?

The truth is found in these pages…

    I thoroughly enjoyed how well I was able to get to know each of the characters in this book as the story progressed. The story unfolds and leads you through many difficult topics and situations that the reader can easily recognise and associate with to some degree.

    I found this book very frustrating all the way through, the ending gave it all a meaning but it just took to long to get to that point.

    I was gripped as per my title however there were bits in the middle that were slightly boring however my drive to learn how she ended up on the island forced me to plough through. I like that the ending was thoughtful and allowed us to see beyond when she was found to get a greater understanding of what she went though, as opposed to ending when we learnt the truth of the other 4 on the island with her. All in all, a great read finished in 4 days (amidst a full time job!)
