A daughter abducted, an anonymous caller, a descent into madness-the first adult crime thriller by beloved Australian author Vikki Wakefield will have you on the edge of your seat.
What happens to a family when a child goes missing? How far would you go to learn the truth?
In a busy street market, Abbie lets go of six-year-old Sarah's hand. She isn't a bad mother, just exhausted. When she turns around, her daughter isn't there. After a full-scale search and a high-profile investigation, there is still no trace of Sarah.
Six years later, Abbie is in love and getting married. Her family, despite their problems, have seen her through her worst imaginings-only Abbie's mother seems unwilling to let her move on. Her fragile peace is constantly threatened- not knowing what happened to Sarah is like living with a curse.
Then a phone call from an unknown number offers closure. A man claims to know what happened to Sarah, but if Abbie tells anyone or fails to follow instructions, she'll never find out. What price must Abbie pay to know the truth?
