Brought to you by Penguin. The Sunday Times bestselling author of The Nanny returns with a compulsive thriller that is a potent blend of atmosphere, tarnished memories, and twisty secrets. Lucy Harper has a talent for invention… She is an exceptionally successful writer whose obsessive readers hound her for every book. But the pressure is extreme. And it’s not just the pressure of finishing her next novel. Years ago when she was a child, Lucy’s little brother went missing and he has never been found. Many people think Lucy was responsible for his disappearance. Lucy herself can’t bear to think about it. Writing a thriller a year is demanding and Lucy depends on her husband Dan to take care of everything in her life. But Lucy finds herself in a real police drama when Dan goes missing. The evidence points to her. And it isn’t the first time someone’s vanished in Lucy’s orbit. Did she kill her husband? Would she remember if she did? Is she even capable of telling the truth? PRAISE FOR GILLY MACMILLAN: 'Pulses with tension until its shocking conclusion' SHARI LAPENA 'White-knuckled suspense' TESS GERRITSEN ‘From the first page I wanted to know all the dark secrets this family were hiding. It’s a seriously addictive read and I never knew who to trust’ AMY LLOYD, author of THE INNOCENT WIFE and ONE MORE LIE ‘A brilliant blend of missing person drama with some seriously spooky Gothic overtones.’ GLAMOUR MAGAZINE ‘Secrets, lies, jealousy and betrayal… Elegantly structured and infused with a creeping sense of dread’ SARAH VAUGHAN ‘The plot sucked me in and the insidious build had me turning the pages rapidly’ JANE SHEMILT ‘The Nanny will make you doubt everyone - including yourself. Some families are built on a bedrock of lies. This one is no exception. Clever and deliciously addictive’ JANE CORRY ‘I was blown away by The Nanny. Original, twisty, unpredictable and taut with its buried secrets, the old creepy house and complex relationships. I never knew who to trust and the ending shocked me. This deserves to be huge!’ CLAIRE DOUGLAS ‘A tense, assured and atmospheric thriller which will keep you guessing from page one right through to the shocking denouement. Brilliantly absorbing’ MEL McGRATH ©Gilly Macmillan 2020 (P) Penguin Audio 2020Show more
