I do love a Carol Wyer book and when she announced earlier this year that she was releasing a stand alone novel I was beyond excited. as much as I’d love to know what is happening in the world of Kate Young, who can resist a fresh new tale? Not me, which is why I jumped at the chance to help with the cover reveal. And it’s a real beaut. Before we take a look at the awesome cover, here’s what the book is all about:
About the Book
Two kidnappings, thirty years apart. Can Stacey face her own dark past in order to save her stepdaughter?
When Stacey’s ex-husband turns up on her doorstep begging her to help save his kidnapped thirteen-year-old daughter, Lyra, the terror is all too familiar. Stacey’s own violent kidnapping thirty years ago was never solved, and while a severe case of amnesia spares her from recalling the specific horrors, she remembers enough…
Stacey knows her father never paid the ransom—she has the missing pinkie finger to prove it. She knows she was only saved because of an anonymous tip-off to the police. And she knows her captor was never apprehended.
Lyra’s kidnappers have made it clear the police must not get involved. But Stacey can’t shake the eerie similarities between the two cases, and she’ll use whatever she can, from her journalistic powers to her shady contacts, to save Lyra from the same nightmare. Desperate to find any link between Lyra’s abduction and her own, Stacey forces herself to revisit her forgotten, traumatic past for clues.
But can she make sense of the terrible secrets she unearths in time to save Lyra? And if she does, is she ready to face her own tormentor?
Doesn’t that sound amazing? So much intrigue it’s really piqued my curiosity. Cannot wait for December. Carol always spins a suspenseful and tension packed tale so I have no doubt this will be absolutely brilliant.
So – are you ready to see the cover? Honestly – I love it. Here we go …
What do you reckon? Totally has that ‘kidnap and ransom’ vibe and I just cannot wait.
Don’t forget, the book is out on 6th December so get ordering, right now.
