The Hidden Girl

A Novel

From "a writer to watch," this gripping psychological thriller follows a young woman who uncovers a decades-old secret in her idyllic suburban neighborhood—but who will believe her?

THE PERFECT HOUSE . . . THE PERFECT LIFE . . . THE PERFECT TRAP

Hannah Riley and her musician husband, Will, hope that a move to the countryside will provide a fresh start. Hannah is desperate for a baby, and she hopes that this new life will allow her to realize her dream of adopting a child . . . and revitalize her marriage. Yet when the worst snowstorm in years comes to Suffolk, Will is working in London and Hannah is cut off in their remote village, obsessively scrambling to turn the tumbledown manor into the perfect refuge for a child. Life in Tornley proves to be far from idyllic, however. Hannah has spent her professional life doing the right thing for other people. As she starts to uncover a terrible crime, she realizes she can no longer do that without putting everything she's ever wanted at risk. But if Hannah does nothing, the next victim could be her . . .
