Ten years after the disappearance of her friend Corrine and her flight from her home town as a consequence, Nicolette has returned to sort out her father’s affairs. Not long after Nic is back in town another girl vanishes- someone that was also tied to the mystery a decade ago. Is it a coincidence? Investigations into the new case bring Corrine’s incident back into the present.
Because of the way the story is written you need a good long stretch reading, but it’s worth it. The writing style suits the story; it’s economic with no unnecessary dialogue or descriptions, creating tension as the events of the past are revealed. Just like real life, you never know all the secrets that people keep to protect loved ones.
