Imagine you don’t know your own darkest secret. But someone else does – and now they want you dead. Exhausted single mother Rebekah Murphy leaves her daughters with a friend in the city to accompany her brother on a work assignment on a picturesque island. An hour after arriving, her and her brother are attacked. He vanishes, she’s left for dead and, by the time she makes it back to safety, it’s already too late: the island has closed for the season – and it’ll be seven months before anyone returns. But even with her brother missing, even with no boats, phones or people, Rebekah will soon realise that finding a way back to the mainland is only the start of her nightmare. Because someone is waiting for her – and they don’t want her to make it home alive.

Rebekah Murphy has been missing for five months. Why is no one looking for her?
Rebekah Murphy knows too much . . .
She knows she’s alone on an abandoned island with a killer on her trail.
She knows that to get home, she must live to understand why this is happening.
She knows someone tried to kill her for a secret.
What she doesn’t know is what that secret is . . .
Detective Frank Travis doesn’t know enough . . .
He doesn’t know where to find Louise Mason.
He doesn’t know how and why she vanished into thin air three months ago.
He doesn’t know the identity of the man last seen talking to her.
What he does know is that he retires in one week – and if he doesn’t find out where Louise went, no one will . . .
What neither Rebekah nor Detective Travis realize is that each holds a missing piece from the same puzzle – and it will cost them everything to finally solve it . . .
