About the book

‘A compulsive, didn’t-see-it-coming thriller’

ABIGAIL DEAN, international bestselling author of Girl A

One twin vanished. One twin reappeared.

‘A fantastic debut – unpredictable, tense and absorbing’ ROSE CARLYLE, #1 international bestselling author of The Girl in the Mirror

‘Dark and creepy . . . in the most compelling way. A proper page-turner’ KATY BRENT, bestselling author of How to Kill Men and Get Away with It

*

When Eden is rescued from the lake, her mother Lucy has a second chance.

No one knows why the 14-year-old Eden almost drowned on her way home from school. But now she’s safe, Lucy can start being a good mother. The mother she should have always been, before the loss of Eden’s twin during the pregnancy consumed Lucy, all those years ago.

But when Eden wakes up in hospital, she claims that Eden isn’t her name. That her name is Eli – the name Lucy had reserved for the unborn twin.

Could it be that all this time, Lucy’s grief has been misplaced?

Eden, it seems, is the twin who’s really disappeared . . .

‘A major new voice in psychological thrillers’ MINDY MEJIA, bestselling author of Everything You Want Me to Be

‘A deep dive into the messy emotions of love and mourning . . . A great read’ HELEN FIELDS, international bestselling author of The Institution

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
