A suspenseful, page-turning thriller telling the story of four people surrounding a teenager’s disappearance: the father, the best friend, the witness and the private detective.
What would it take to make you intervene?
When Ella overhears two attractive young men flirting with a pair of teenage girls on a train, she thinks nothing of it – until she realises the men are fresh out of prison. With her maternal instinct on high alert, she decides to call for help but something happens that stops her. The next day, she wakes up to the news that one of the girls – beautiful, green-eyed Anna Ballard – has disappeared.
A year later, Anna is still missing. Ella is wracked with guilt over what she failed to do, and she’s not the only one who can’t forget. Someone is sending her threatening postcards – hatemail that makes her fear for her life.
Then an anniversary appeal reveals that Anna’s friends and family might have something to hide. Anna’s best friend Sarah hasn’t been telling the whole truth about what really happened that night – and her parents have been keeping secrets of their own.
Someone knows where Anna is, and they’re not telling. But they are watching Ella.
Ella made a mistake. And someone wants her to pay.
