When Emily and Ben move in next door to Dr Burman and his wife Alisha, they are keen to get to know their new neighbours. Outgoing and sociable, Emily tries to befriend the doctor’s wife, but Alisha is strangely subdued, barely leaving the house, and terrified of answering the phone.

Emily goes missing a few weeks later and Ben is plunged into a panic. His wife has left him a note, but can she really have abandoned him for another man? Or has Emily’s curiosity about the couple next door led her straight into danger?

“A gripping, sinister thriller with a twist you won’t see coming from the international bestseller Lisa Stone.”

I was hooked from the start. And what a twist at the end!  Brilliant!  Twitter


The book takes you to dark corners that will leave you feeling desperate for someone to put all the pieces together in time to save Alisha. Scary situations like this can and probably do exist. Oak City Books 5 *
