***PERFECT FOR FANS OF WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING AND SOON TO BE MAJOR FILM STARRING DAISY RIDLEY*** You'd recognise my mother's name if I told it to you. You'd wonder, briefly, where is she now? And didn't she have a daughter while she was missing? And whatever happened to the little girl? Helena's home is like anyone else's, with a husband, two daughters and a job she enjoys. But no one knows the truth about her dark and twisted childhood. Born into captivity and brought up in an isolated cabin until she was twelve, Helena was raised by her terrified, broken mother and the man who held them both prisoner - Helena's own father. Now with news that he has escaped from prison, Helena instinctively knows that her father is coming for her and if she wants to keep her family safe, she must find him - before he finds her. Even if that means returning to the darkest parts of her past, the scariest place imaginable, home. An unforgettable, read-in-one-sitting thriller packed with gripping suspense. _________ 'If you only read one thriller this year, make it this' CLARE MACKINTOSH 'Emotionally and intellectually thrilling, tremendously exciting' SUNDAY EXPRESS 'Unlike anything else I've read.
