‘Transfixing’ ELLE
‘I was totally gripped’ DOUGLAS STUART
‘A brilliant, riveting fox-trap’ MIRANDA COWLEY HELLER
‘An immersive and enthralling literary thriller’ PAULA HAWKINS
—————————————————–

A once-in-a-generation story. A novel you’ll never forget.

From the New York Times bestselling author

Some said it was tragic, what happened to the Van Laars.

Some said the Van Laars deserved it. That they never even thanked the searchers who stayed out for five nights in the freezing forest trying to help find their missing son.

Some said there was a reason it took the family so long to call for help. That they knew what happened to the boy.

Now, fifteen years later, the daughter the family had in their grief has gone missing in the same wilderness as her brother. Some say the two disappearances aren’t connected.

Some say they are.
