My name is Nora Logue. You’ve probably heard of me – most people have.

I am the mother of Daisy Logue. Seven years ago, I took her for a walk in the woods. Only I came out.

I have no memory of what happened that day.

I have tried to rebuild my life. Met a man, had another child – Luca. But I can’t let go of Daisy, or give up hope of seeing her again.

And now, I have the chance to find out what happened to her.

But what if pursuing the truth about my daughter risks my son’s life?

A whiplash-inducing, unputdownable crime thriller from the author of The Nurse, perfect for fans of CLARE MACKINTOSH and LISA JEWELL.

Thank you Avon for inviting me to review this book.

Claire Allan has become one of my favorite psychological thriller authors and this book is by far one of the best books she had written.

Seven years ago, Nora Logue and her four-year-old daughter Daisy went for a walk in the woods. But only Nora came out of the woods and to this day, Daisy, her daughter had mysteriously disappeared without a trace. Now Nora has met another man named Brandon and has a son Luca. In order to find out what really happened to Daisy that day, Nora agrees for a documentary with Izzy but soon found out that jeopardizing her son’s life while she is making the documentary about the disappearance of her daughter.

This was a fast paced thriller, that will put you at the edge of the seat. The story is told from Nora’s and Izzy’s POV and from the first chapter till the end, it was completely gripping and quiet a page turner that you didn’t really want to put the book down. The book mainly talks about the trauma the mother experience when losing a child, particularly when everyone is pinpointing the blame on the mother for neglecting her own child and also talks abotu a cult. The twist at the end was completely unexpected but the ending was bit rushed in my opinion, otherwise, I really enjoyed this book–if you are looking for a fast paced unputdownable thriller then this book is one for you–worth five stars!

Many thanks to Netgalley and Avon for the ARC. The book is based on my honest opinion only.
