Fluctuating between 2010 and 1999 this is the tale of missing teenager Emma who may or may not be dead, of Lucas an evil, manipulative psycho, Ben a young adult working in a hostel and Jenny who takes too many drugs. That was back in 1999. Now, in 2010, a body is found in some woods. This opens up the old case, brings back the original detective, DC Gardner, to work with the new investigator, DS Nicola Freeman, and sets folk attempting to find the original teenagers, minus one … but which and why … that is at the centre of this tense tale. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Gone by Rebecca Muddiman

250,000 people go missing in the UK every year. 91% of those reported to police are found within 48 hours. 99% of cases are solved within a year. And 1% stay gone. Troubled teenager Emma Thorley vanished without a trace eleven years ago. But now a body has been found...As news of the discovery travels, the past comes back to haunt all those involved, from the police to Emma's friends and enemies. Because some secrets cannot be buried for ever...and some dangers never go away.


'The strength of the characters maintain the story's pace...we shall hear much more of Ms Muddiman' Daily Mail

'Captivating and fast-paced, GONE has a riveting storyline and gritty characters in a super-twisty plot.' -- Mel Sherratt, author of Taunting the Dead
