Gone




A MAJOR LAUNCH OF A NEW INVESTIGATIVE THRILLER SERIES
A spectacular new thriller with an ingenious hook that turns the missing person plot on its head... What if the people disappearing are the ones we should fear?

Brought to you by Penguin.

Four strangers are missing. Left at their last-known locations are birthday cards that read:

YOUR GIFT IS THE GAME.
DARE TO PLAY?

The police aren't worried - it's just a game. But the families are frantic, and psychologist and private detective Dr Augusta Bloom is persuaded to investigate. As she delves into the lives of the missing people, she finds something that binds them all.

And that something makes them very dangerous indeed.

As more disappearances are reported and new birthday cards uncovered, Dr Bloom races to unravel the mystery and find the puppeteer. But is she playing into their hands?

Praise for Gone

If you like a proper, twisty nerve-wracking thriller, here's one for you!

Emma Curtis, author of 'One Little Mistake'

With a scorching finale and a psychologist-cum-private detective to savour, this is the one to watch!

T A Cotterell, author of 'What Alice Knew'

Fabulous. Beautifully imagined, beautifully written, immediately immersive, and scary as can be.

Lee Child

Clever and well plotted, this is a true original that will stay with you long after it's chilling close.

Woman & Home

An interesting novel, pleasantly different from most crime fiction that deals with psychopathy.

Literary Review

One of the best books to buy this Christmas!

Gransnet

The latest thriller you need to add to your reading list, especially for those who love nothing more than solving a mystery.

The Sun

Dark, with a focus on psychopathy, this is undoubtedly our favourite thriller of 2019. Shiver as Dr August Bloom is drawn into a chilling game with very high stakes. What sets this novel apart is the final reveal, which comes as a genuine shock, and will linger in your mind long after finishing the book.

Woman & Home

A fascinating thriller with a unique concept that will immerse you from the get-go

Crime Monthly

The story contains more twists and turns than a fairground ride
