Review:

One of the brightest debuts I have read this year - a visceral, emotionally charged story from a youg woman we are sure to hear far more of. Heart-wrenchingly well told and expertly constructed, this deserves to stay on the bestseller list' (Daily Mail)

. . . heart-in-the-mouth excitement from the start of this electrifyingly good debut . . . an absolute firecracker of a thriller that convinces and captivates from the word go. A must read. (Sunday Mirror)

A distinctly contemporary twist on Salem circa 1692 . . . A pacy, twisty thriller. (Independent)

If you love Gone Girl and Before I Go to Sleep, you need to read this. (Closer)

What an amazing, gripping, beautifully written debut. It kept me up late into the night (and scared the life out of me) (Liane Moriarty - author of The Husband's Secret)

A book which hooks you and keeps you focused on it until the end. (Shotsmag)

This accomplished, intelligent debut should come with a warning - it's completely addictive. A nail-biting, sleep-depriving, brilliant read (Saskia Sarginson)

Every parent's nightmare, handled with intelligence and sensitivity, the novel is also deceptively clever. I found myself racing through to find out what happened (Rosamund Lupton)

Tightly focussed and fast-paced. You won't rest until you really know what happened (Lisa Ballantyne)

What an exciting debut! This book kept me up until the small hours, from the nightmarish moment when a mother first realises that her son has disappeared, to the dramatic denouement. Gilly Macmillan's voice is innovative and confident, and she creates a cast of very human characters. There's a page-turning urgency, combined with an insightful exploration of the emotional fall-out after the abduction of a small child. Meanwhile the media and internet community are shadowy figures whose pitiless speculation and harassment seem all too believable. Written with passion and insight. Bravo, Gilly Macmillan (Charity Norman - author of After The Fall)
