Publisher's Summary

The haunting new novel from the author of 2014's stunning Richard and Judy Book Club best seller Daughter.
Emma and Adam are doctors at the top of their fields, and so when they are offered the chance to take their three children to Africa for a year for a research placement it seems like the opportunity of a lifetime. It's going to be an experience they'll never forget. But for all the wrong reasons.
When Emma arrives home one night to the sickening sight of an empty cot, their family's dream adventure turns into their worst nightmare. Thousands of miles from home and from anyone who can help, they must discover the truth. Is this a random abduction, a tragic accident, or something far more sinister?

great reading from start to finish

This book is full of interest from start to finish. The medical and Africa interests are well written. I loved this book and the narrator.

Depressing and far fetched

As a working mum this made me feel rather guilt ridden. The ending was really far fetched. Depressing and dysfunctional.
