Four strangers are missing. Left at their last-known locations are birthday cards that read- YOUR GIFT IS THE GAME. DARE TO PLAY? The police aren't worried - it's just a game. But the families are frantic, and psychologist and private detective Dr Augusta Bloom is persuaded to investigate. As she delves into the lives of the missing people, she finds something that binds them all.

And that something makes them very dangerous indeed.

As more disappearances are reported and new birthday cards uncovered, Dr Bloom races to unravel the mystery and find the missing people.

But what if, this time, they are the ones she should fear?

Reviews for Gone: A riveting, mind-twisting new thriller that's always one step ahead of you

Dark, with a focus on psychopathy, this is undoubtedly our favourite thriller of 2019. Shiver as Dr August Bloom is drawn into a chilling game with very high stakes. What sets this novel apart is the final reveal, which comes as a genuine shock, and will linger in your mind long after finishing the book. * Woman & Home * Fabulous. Beautifully imagined, beautifully written, immediately immersive, and scary as can be. * Lee Child * If you like a proper, twisty nerve-wracking thriller, here's one for you! * Emma Curtis, author of 'One Little Mistake' * With a scorching finale and a psychologist-cum-private detective to savour, this is the one to watch! * T A Cotterell, author of 'What Alice Knew' * One of the best books to buy this Christmas! * Gransnet *
