From NY Times bestselling author of the Justice series, I know the Truth, and the DI Sara Ramsey Detective series who has sold over three million copies worldwide comes a new psychological thriller.
One second she was there, the next… she was gone!

I Know the Truth.
What should have been a lovely break becomes a parents worst nightmare in She’s Gone. A father who has just managed to start seeing his daughter again, only to have her snatched away. I felt as distraught as Adele’s parents as I had every sympathy for what they were going through.
The author shows us how one event can cause a drastic turn in someone’s life. Overnight things change for Martin as he struggles to come to terms with his daughter’s disappearance and the only other person who could possibly understand what he is going through is Deborah, his ex.
I don’t want to give too much away but we get to see what life is like for Adele’s parents in the aftermath of the day she goes missing. It’s an insight into how people function in this sort of instance and how they try and carry on with their lives. The police and the case is very much in the background while the story focuses on Martin and Deborah. I had no clue in what direction the author was going to take us and if we would ever get to know what really happened to Adele.
She’s Gone grabbed my attention from the off and had me gripped to each page in the hope of discovering the truth. The author really keeps things close to her chest and I had all sorts running through my head as to who could be behind Adele’s disappearance. The pacing starts to ramp up towards the end as the story takes a sinister turn with some shocking revelations. A story that will keep you guessing until the very end!
