I’ve been waiting for AGES to reveal the cover of my third psychological thriller and today I received the official thumbs up from my publisher to make an announcement so…
I absolutely LOVE the cover. It fits beautifully with the cover design for THE ACCIDENT and THE LIE and I’m thrilled beyond words to see ‘The Sunday Times Bestseller’ above my name at the top.
You love your family. They make you feel safe. You trust them. Or do you…?
When fifteen-year-old Billy Wilkinson goes missing in the middle of the night his mother, Claire Wilkinson, blames herself. She’s not the only one. There isn’t a single member of Billy’s family that doesn’t feel guilty. But the Wilkinsons are so used to keeping secrets from one other that it isn’t until six months later, after an appeal for information goes horribly wrong, that the truth begins to surface.
Claire is sure of two things – that Billy is alive and that her friends and family had nothing to do with his disappearance.
A mother’s instinct is never wrong. Or is it?
Sometimes those closest to us are the ones with the most to hide…
THE MISSING will be published in the UK on 21st April 2016 and it’s available to pre-order from Amazon and other online retailers right now.
I delivered the first draft of THE MISSING to my agent and editor a little over a week ago and my agent Madeleine Milburn rang me up just days later to tell me how much she loved it. I couldn’t be more relieved! My editor is due to deliver my edits on 1st October so I’ve got a little bit of breathing space between now and then but I’m being kept busy with admin and my tax return (groan). I’m also spending the time doing a bit of research for a couple of ideas I’ve got for future books.
