One perfect summer day, mother of two Alice walks into the sea . . . and never comes back.

Her daughters – loyal but fragile Lily, and headstrong, long-absent Marietta – are forcibly reunited by her disappearance.

Meanwhile, with retirement looming, DI Fox investigates cold cases long since forgotten. And there’s one obsession he won’t let go: the tragic death of an infant twenty years before.

Can Lily and Marietta uncover what happened to their mother? Will Fox solve a mystery that has haunted him for decades? As their stories unexpectedly collide, long-buried secrets will change their lives in unimaginable ways.

A gripping and emotional new thriller perfect for fans of Cara Hunter, Heidi Perks, Claire Douglas and Linda Green.




On a beautiful day in summer, Alice decided to walk into the sea and never come back. The mother of two daughter, Lily and Marietta, leaves her family in a state of shock as they never saw this coming. From different corners of the globe, the sisters are reunited in their home town to uncover what happened to their mother. Contrastingly, DI Fox is investigating a cold case that others are certain can never be solved. He’s determined that he will solve it before he retires and he just can’t let this case go.

The storytelling was brilliant for both storylines. They work well together seperately and intertwine together wonderfully as the story progresses. It feels quite slow paced for the majority of the book as the reader is drawn into the complex family background and the intricacies of their relationships. It showed an interesting insight into how people manage grief in varying ways and made the characters feel much more human.

I could easily see this story as a television series with dramatic scenery, interesting characters and an even more dramatic plot to match. An emotional and thought provoking read.
