Things are going wrong for Olivia Shorten.
Her little boy has become withdrawn and anxious.
Her marriage is not the safe place she had believed it to be.
To top it all off, her teenage stepson has just come to live with them…and there’s something unsettling, something not-quite-right about Charlie.
Olivia has her own plan about how to fix things. Unconventional, maybe, but she thinks she’s doing the right thing for her family.
But then her little boy vanishes from their backyard without a trace.
Frantic with fear, and with the police and the media poking around in places she'd rather they didn't, it soon becomes apparent that everyone is hiding something.
An uncomfortable, unsettling look at families in the context of a twisty domestic thriller. Tackles tough questions about families and the way we treat the ones we love with insight and depth, while cracking along at a great pace. Tense, haunting, perfect for fans of The Last Thing He Told Me and Little Fires Everywhere.
