Two women – one the sister of a missing girl and the other a victim who escaped – come together to unmask a killer in this heart-stopping, unputdownable thriller from a sensational new voice in suspense fiction.
If you loved THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN, don't miss this sensational suspense thriller, that will keep you guessing to the very end . . .
Her truth is only half the story . . .
Megan McDonald is a high school senior when she disappears from the small town of Emerson Bay. Miraculously, after two weeks held captive, she escapes from a bunker hidden deep in the woods.
Now, one year on, Megan is a national celebrity thanks to her bestselling book, Missing. It’s an inspiring story - except for one inconvenient detail.
There was a second girl who was taken. Her classmate Nicole Cutty.
Livia Cutty is a forensic pathologist. Every time a Jane Doe arrives at the morgue she wonders if it’s her missing sister. However it’s the body of a young man, an apparent suicide, who finally offers the first clue to Nicole’s fate. So Livia reaches out to Megan for help.
But Megan knows more than she’s revealed. Flashes of memory are coming together – and they are pointing to something darker and more monstrous than anything her chilling memoir describes.

Comments about The Girl Who Was Taken:
I had read good things about this book & the author, so I was particularly disappointed overall.
The first third was interesting enough but then the storyline became so contrived & slightly unbelievable I struggled to finish, I can't detail my objections without blowing the outcome even more than the author does
