From the internationally bestselling author of The Shifting Fog & The Secret Keeper

An abandoned house.....

After a particularly troubling case, Sadie Sparrow is sent on an enforced break from her job with the Metropolitan Police and retreats to her beloved grandfather's cottage in Cornwall. There she finds herself at a loose end, until one day she stumbles upon an abandoned house surrounded by overgrown gardens and dense woods, and learns the story of a baby boy who disappeared without a trace.

A missing child.....

June 1933, and the Edevane family's country house, Loeanneth, is polished and gleaming, ready for the much-anticipated Midsummer Eve party. For Eleanor, the annual party has always been one of her treasured traditions, but her middle daughter, Alice, sixteen years old and with literary ambitions, is especially excited. Not only has Alice worked out the perfect twist for her novel, she's also fallen helplessly in love with someone she shouldn't. But by the time midnight strikes and fireworks light up the night sky, the Edevane family will have suffered a loss so great they leave Loeanneth and never return.

An unsolved mystery.....

Seventy years later, in the attic writing room of her elegant Hampstead home, the formidable Alice Edevane, leads a life as neatly plotted as the bestselling detective novels she writes. Until a young police detective starts asking questions about her family's past and seeking to resurrect the complex tangle of secrets Alice has spent her life trying to escape...

WRITE A REVIEW

A great read (almost) to the end

4

Ms Norton wrote a cleverly crafted book that intrigued me right from the start.' A cold case goes unsolved for decades until a tenacious detective, Sadie Sparrow, quite literally stumbles on it while on forced vacation in Cornwall, England. Driven by her own demons, she develops a passion for the beautiful, but neglected, house on the lake; and even more so the mysterious characters who have been struggling with a family tragedy for the better part of a century. Ms Norton knows how to weave together a good story and she keeps you guessing right to the end. The only disappointment is the ending itself. It seems almost too good to be true and more than a bit contrived. The characters, which were so properly developed throughout the book, suddenly lose their magic while events are almost forced to a conclusion that tries to be too neat. Apart from that it is a very entertaining read.

I love Kate Morton books. They keep me spell bound in the story and waiting to know what happens next. Captivating story set over several decades with several plot twists and turns. I love that the characters are relatable and flawed. Like her other books this one didn't disappoint.
