The real nightmare starts when her daughter is returned...

A bone-chilling psychological thriller that will suit fans of Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn, Daughter, by Jane Shemilt, and The Girl on the Train, by Paula Hawkins.

A girl is missing. Five years old, taken from outside her school. She has vanished, traceless.

The police are at a loss; her parents are beyond grief. Their daughter is lost forever, perhaps dead, perhaps enslaved.

But the biggest mystery is yet to come: one week after she was abducted, their daughter is returned.

She has no memory of where she has been. And this, for her mother, is just the beginning of the nightmare.

Divorce attorney Julia Crowne, the heroine of this nail-biting psychological thriller from the pseudonymous Lake, a British novelist, arrives one afternoon at Westwood, a school somewhere in the U.K., to pick up her five-year-old daughter, Anna—but Anna isn’t there. Either the girl wandered off or she was kidnapped. A few days earlier, Julia asked her husband, Brian, in whom she has lost interest, for a separation. Once the story of Anna’s disappearance gets out, the press vilifies Julia, falsely labeling her as a negligent, mentally unstable adulterer who was planning on leaving her husband and daughter. A week later, the police receive a call from a newsagent, who says that a little girl has walked into his store claiming to be Anna. Once Anna returns home, the nightmare is far from over, and Julia’s life unravels even more. Alternating between the viewpoints of the abductor and the frantic, guilt-ridden Julia, Lake deftly exposes their deepest thoughts and maintains high suspense to the very end. Agent: Melissa Pimentel, Curtis Brown (U.K.). (Aug.)
