The Disappearance

The Disappearance

From the bestselling author of The Legacy, comes an unforgettable novel exploring guilt, love and confronting the truth.

April, 1942. Amid the chaos of a night of bombing in Bath, six-year-old Davy Noyle goes missing. Frances Parry, looking after him at the time, is tortured by guilt and refuses to believe that he’s dead.

As quiet falls and the dust begins to settle on the damaged city, a body is found. But it’s the body of a little girl, Frances’s best friend Wyn, who has been missing for over twenty years.

As Frances continues her search for Davy, this new discovery leads her back to her childhood, and forces her to revisit a crime that has cast a shadow over her life. This time, she vows to uncover the truth, however dark it might be.
