Synopsis

'A phenomenal, haunting debut.' Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl

Kaycee Mitchell died. And everyone has been lying about it. For years.

Ten years ago, Abby Williams left her hometown behind. Ever since, she has tried her best to forget the past. The sinister 'Game'; the merciless bullying; the night of the bonfire, when The Game stopped.

Most of all, she wants to forget Kaycee Mitchell.

But now Abby must return home. Her task at hand: to investigate Optimal Plastics, the corporation that forms the backbone of the small town. A successful environmental lawyer, she swears things will be different. She is older. Sophisticated. Confident. But once she begins digging, the memories start creeping back and as past and present collide, the investigation turns deadly.

How far would you go to keep the past hidden?

'Packed with suspense ... This portrait of small-town life by Breaking Bad and Jessica Jones actress is spot on.' Daily Mail

'Excellent ... an appealingly feisty yet vulnerable heroine.' The Times
