In the early hours of Saturday 17 December 2011, Zoe Nolan, a nineteen-year-old Manchester University student, walked out of a party taking place in the shared accommodation where she had been living for three months.
She was never seen again.
Seven years after her disappearance, struggling writer Evelyn Mitchell finds herself drawn into the mystery.
Through interviews with Zoe ‘ s closest friends and family, she begins piecing together what really happened in 2011.
But where some versions of events overlap, aligning perfectly with one another, others stand in stark contrast, giving rise to troubling inconsistencies.
Shaken by revelations of Zoe ‘ s secret life, and stalked by a figure from the shadows, Evelyn turns to crime writer Joseph Knox to help make sense of a case where everyone has something to hide.
Zoe Nolan may be missing presumed dead, but her story is only just the beginning..
Firstly a huge thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley. I’m a huge fan of this authors books so was excited to see what he had written next.
I’ll be honest its very different both to what I expected and to his series . I am left pondering after reading did I enjoy it.. not in a bad way! It is a highly thought provoking and unsettling account of a true mystery surrounding a teenager girls disappearance. I’m a mum to a teenage girl who’s off to uni this year so perhaps this shifted the level of enjoyment for me personally.
However it is incredibly fresh and written in a easy to read and follow dialogue. I raced through as was compelled to know more and find the truth.
It’s a dark topic but you can see the grit ,determination and passion that was given in getting this story out there.
Cleverly written and in a unique original style that captures the reader straight away.
