In this chilling thriller from the bestselling authors of Spare Room, one woman just wants the truth about who she really is. But she’s not the only one looking…
Their new novel is a psychological thriller that at its heart has the cases of missing black women and girls that are all too frequently left without investigation, and are overlooked by the media.
Eva, goes in search of her biological parents, despite the warnings of her adopted father Carlton ‘Sugar’ McNeil. As she continues to dig, Eva is drawn into a dark and merciless underside to society, where black women disappear without a word. Once, someone tried to save her from all this. But now that she’s torn down the facade of her life, has she come too far to be spared again?
