From multi-million-selling writer Jeff Abbott comes an intense and gripping new psychological thriller about a daughter’s desperate search for her mother – when she discovers two other women with the same name are also missing.

My mum would never leave me.

This has been Mariah Dunning’s motto. So when she glimpses her mother – who’s been missing for the past year – Mariah’s conviction becomes stronger than ever. Or is she losing her mind?

An unlikely coincidence?

When Beth Dunning disappeared without a trace, suspicion for her murder immediately fell upon Mariah’s father. Until Mariah stumbles upon two other recent disappearances. And all three women had the same name: Beth.

Or a sinister connection?

Mariah would give anything to find out what happened to her mother and clear her father’s name. But the truth may be more devastating than she could have imagined…

Like a stage magician, Abbott often seems to be doing one thing when he's actually doing something else, and when we realize what he's been up to, we can't help but shake our heads in admiration.
Gripping, complex and suspenseful. LOVED IT!
