The book has been featured on a number of press roundups, including Bustle’s article on ‘must-read books‘ and ‘19 of the Best Book Releases in 2020‘, Woman & Home’s ‘Best thriller books of 2020‘, and the Financial Times’ ‘the best in new crime fiction – the depths of domestic noir‘.

We cannot wait for everyone to get their hands on C.J. Tudor’s latest gripping novel…
Driving home one night, Gabe sees the face of a little girl he knows in the rear window of the car in front.
She mouths one word – ‘Daddy’.
He never sees his five-year-old daughter, Izzy, again.
The police believe she’s dead. But three years later, Gabe still drives the roads, searching for the car that took Izzy, never giving up hope . . .
Fran and her daughter, Alice, aren’t searching – but running. Always one step ahead of the people who want to hurt them.
Because Fran knows the truth about Gabe’s daughter – and she knows what those chasing her and Alice will do if they ever catch them . . .
C. J. Tudor lives in Sussex, England with her partner and daughter. Over the years she has worked as a copywriter, television presenter, voiceover and dog-walker. She is now thrilled to be able to write full-time, and doesn’t miss chasing wet dogs through muddy fields all that much.
