Description

Detective Elise King investigates a man's disappearance in a seaside town where the locals and weekenders are at odds with each other, in this rich and captivating new crime novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Widow. Everyone watches their neighbours. Elise King moves into the sleepy seaside town of Ebbing. Illness has thrown her career as a successful detective into doubt, but no matter how hard she tries to relax and recuperate, she knows that something isn't right. Everyone lies about their friends. Tensions are running high beneath the surface of this idyllic community- the weekenders in their fancy clothes, renovating old bungalows into luxury homes, and the locals resentful of the changes. A town divided, with the threat of violence only a heartbeat away. Everyone knows a secret. This peaceful world is shattered when two teenagers end up in hospital and a local man vanishes without trace. Elise starts digging for answers, but the community closes ranks, and the truth begins to slip through her fingers. Because in a small town like this, the locals are good at keeping secrets... Everyone's a suspect when a local goes missing.

She interviewed people at the heart of these crimes, from the guilty to their families, as well as those on the periphery, and found it was those just outside the spotlight who interested her most...
