Overview

 Isabel, Owen and Julia were childhood friends. But when they were fifteen, Julia disappeared without a trace—an event that had a devastating impact on the others.

Years later, Isabel returns to her home town in the north of England for Owen’s funeral. She hadn’t seen him since they recklessly burned down the local supermarket together; he was sent to prison and she, just shy of her 18th birthday, to a young offenders’ centre. Isabel suspects that Owen was responsible for Julia’s murder, and she’s hoping finally to find some kind of resolution.

Feeling cut off from her husband and child in Turkey, and awash with unexpected memories, Isabel ventures further into the murky depths of her past. But nothing is as it seems—either past or present—and as Isabel’s world unravels we finally realise the stunning, shattering truth . . .
