About the Author:

Gilly Macmillan is the New York Times bestselling author of What She Knew and The Perfect Girl. She trained as an art historian and worked at The Burlington Magazine and the Hayward Gallery before starting a family. Since then she's worked as a lecturer in photography, and now writes full-time. She resides in Bristol, England.

Review:

Gilly Macmillan introduces some smart variations on the [missing child] theme in her debut mystery . . . Macmillan enlivens the narrative with emails, newspaper headlines, passages from professional journals, even transcripts from Inspector Clemo's sessions with a psychotherapist. But her best move is to include vicious blog posts that go viral. Guilty or innocent, once Rachel is put on trial by the Internet, her fate may be sealed. * New York Times Book Review * Strong descriptions, sensitive use of language and great interactions between the characters make this story truly memorable, and it's a heart-wrenching read for any parent. * Crime Fiction Lover * An explosively exciting and very modern thriller. * Best Magazine * 'A beautifully written, deeply probing psychological thriller capturing a mother's anguish and a police officer's torment in the face of a life-altering incident' * The Huffington Post * Harrowing...brilliant...so well written. A tremendous debut novel -- Mark Billingham [Chilling] and deftly handled. * Shotsmag * A compulsive page-turner. * Red Magazine * Fascinating page-turner. * Prima * Taut, emotional and packed with suspense, it kept me glued to the pages. * Woman & Home * A very clever, tautly plotted page turned from a terrific new writer. * Good Housekeeping * A terrific debut. * Reader's Digest * A powerful page-turner and damning commentary on this age of the internet, where everyone has an opinion and a forum in which they can voice it. * Woman's Weekly, New Zealand * This pacy, emotional and expertly characterised novel's sure to follow in the footsteps of fellow thrillers such as The Girl On The Train and Gone Girl by soaring to the top of the bestseller charts * The Media Eye * Deft, tense and utterly gripping, and stays with you long after the final page has been turned. -- Tim Weaver - author of Never Coming Back What an exciting debut! This book kept me up until the small hours, from the nightmarish moment when a mother first realises that her son has disappeared, to the dramatic denouement. Gilly Macmillan's voice is innovative and confident, and she creates a cast of very human characters. There's a page-turning urgency, combined with an insightful exploration of the emotional fall-out after the abduction of a small child. Meanwhile the media and internet community are shadowy figures whose pitiless speculation and harassment seem all too believable. Written with passion and insight. Bravo, Gilly Macmillan -- Charity Norman - author of After The Fall Tightly focussed and fast-paced. You won't rest until you really know what happened -- Lisa Ballantyne Every parent's nightmare, handled with intelligence and sensitivity, the novel is also deceptively clever. I found myself racing through to find out what happened -- Rosamund Lupton This accomplished, intelligent debut should come with a warning - it's completely addictive. A nail-biting, sleep-depriving, brilliant read -- Saskia Sarginson A book which hooks you and keeps you focused on it until the end. * Shotsmag * What an amazing, gripping, beautifully written debut. It kept me up late into the night (and scared the life out of me) -- Liane Moriarty - author of The Husband's Secret If you love Gone Girl and Before I Go to Sleep, you need to read this. * Closer * A distinctly contemporary twist on Salem circa 1692 . . . A pacy, twisty thriller. * Independent * . . . heart-in-the-mouth excitement from the start of this electrifyingly good debut . . . an absolute firecracker of a thriller that convinces and captivates from the word go. A must read. * Sunday Mirror * One of the brightest debuts I have read this year - a visceral, emotionally charged story from a youg woman we are sure to hear far more of. Heart-wrenchingly well told and expertly constructed, this deserves to stay on the bestseller list * Daily Mail *
