She found her, but can she save her?
Nobody knows how to grab a reader and hang on tight like Denzil… So many twists and turns, you won’t be able to stop guessing until the very last page. Denzil is the queen of domestic suspense and one of my favourite authors.

“Take my hand, little one.”
Fran finds her standing by the swings. A little girl, Esther, no older than seven years old, by herself in the dead of night, her pretty yellow dress covered in grass stains and her hair dishevelled.
After Esther is reunited with her family, Fran can’t stop thinking about this pious child whose imaginary friend is God. Fran’s instincts tell her something is very wrong. Why does Esther keep running away from home, and how did she get that bruise on her leg?
Fran’s husband warns her not to get too close, but one morning, Esther and her family disappear. Where did they go? Why did they leave their furniture behind?
Fran knows in her gut that something terrible is going to happen to that child, and she can’t stand by while it happens. No matter the cost.
After all, she found her. But can she save her?
