'Addictive. Propulsive. Dervla McTiernan is a thriller master.' Trent Dalton
Nina, a young and intelligent woman, appeared to have the perfect life. However, when her relationship with her boyfriend began to fracture, her sudden disappearance raised numerous unanswered questions.
As a father of two young children, I found the unfolding drama to be quite challenging. How does one navigate the complex world of social media when caught up in such events? As a parent, what steps do you take to protect your child? While unconditional love is prevalent, would you still feel the same if your child was suspected of wrongdoing?
With its fast-paced writing style, this book will enthrall readers who enjoy thrillers and crime fiction.
