Having a child was never part of Lisa’s plan. A rising star of London’s biggest newspaper, Lisa’s coveted spot as a crime reporter has gained her quite the reputation.

When a series of children turn up dead five days after they go missing, it becomes clear the city has a serial killer on their hands. Seeing it as her big break into the mainstream, Lisa pounces on the opportunity and gets to work on publicly goading the killer with hard-hitting headlines.

Racing out in the middle of the night when the latest body is discovered, Lisa leaves her six-year-old son Mason with a teenage neighbour, only to find the babysitter asleep and Mason's bed empty with a note from the killer when she returns.

Now in the center of her own story, a guilt-ridden Lisa is put under fire as a media frenzy circles around the case. As her life is autopsied and secrets from her past excavated, Lisa knows she has only five days to track down the killer before her own son becomes the next victim.

Perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn and Paula Hawkins, this spine-chilling psychological thriller will leave you guessing until the very last page.
