A spellbinding mystery of obsession and guilt, this is also the poignant story of what happens to those left behind when a child vanishes without trace.

It is the summer of 1968, the day Senator Robert Kennedy is shot. Two nine-year-old girls are playing hide and seek in the ruins of a deserted village. Alice has discovered a secret about Eleanor Ramsay's mother, and is taunting the other girl. When it is Eleanor's turn to hide, Alice disappears. Years later, an extraordinary turn of events opens up shocking truths for the Ramsay family and all who knew the missing girl.

    " This is an exceptionally intelligent and subtle crime novel. Thomson's eye for detail and insight into behaviour and motivation holds you spellbound until the final page. Thoroughly recommend. "

    " Not quite 4 stars, closer to 3.5...I did enjoy this book although it tended to be slow in sections. "

    " I wanted to know what had happened, which kept me reading, but this book was slow in places. I also thought that some of the storyline didn't hang together too well, but that said, it was still readable and enjoyable. "

    " Different from my normal reading - took a bit to get into as there are lots of bits where the timelines jump around. However, lots of unexpected twists and turns and a surprise ending "
