Barry and Cheryl, desperately poor and living in a tower block with their two small children, are amongst the most famous people in the country due to the attentions of a television company, who had made them the subject of a fly-on-the-wall documentary. Cheryl was prepared to do anything - anything - to be a media star. She thought that the public loved her, and indeed for a while it seemed that the nation had taken this simple, gutsy, poverty-stricken couple to its heart. But with the birth of Cheryl's third baby it all goes horribly wrong. In the public's eye she is transformed from a plucky trier into a profligate sponger on the state. She desperately wants to be loved - and then, mysteriously, all her three children go missing. Have they been abducted? Murdered? Or is there some even more sinister explanation for their disappearance?

From the Inside Flap:

From the author of The Sleeper, an electrifying novel that lays bare the horrors which can arise from the manipulation of the media.

They only wanted to be TV stars?until their three small children disappeared.

Desperately poor, Barry, Cheryl and their three children are possibly the most famous family in Britain, after the Royal family. Their fame has come, not from wealth or success or glamour, but from the attentions of a television company who made them the subject of a fly-on-the-wall documentary.

Cheryl was prepared to do anything to be a media star and believed the public loved her ? and, indeed, for a while it seemed the nation had taken this simple, gutsy, poverty-stricken couple to its heart. But then everything goes horribly wrong. Cheryl has a third baby ? and is transformed in the public?s eyes from a plucky but unlucky go-getter to a profligate welfare mom. Then, mysteriously, her three children go missing. Have they been abducted? Murdered? Or is there an even more sinister explanation for their disappearance?

From the Back Cover:
