Someone is watching her. She just doesn't know it yet.

Nell Sweeney has led an ordinary life. Every day she walks to and from the hospital where she works as a nurse, believing that no harm can befall her.

Until one day she is taken.

Because someone out there has a secret. Someone out there has been watching Nell - and they've been watching others like her too.

Nell is the unlucky one - she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. And if she isn't found soon, someone will make sure that she isn't the last woman to disappear...

A chilling, gripping read, perfect for fans of Clare Mackintosh and Gillian McAllister.

About the Author

Claire Allan is a former journalist from Derry in Northern Ireland, where she still lives with her husband, two children, two cats and a hyperactive puppy.

In her eighteen years as a journalist she covered a wide range of stories from attempted murders, to court sessions, to the Saville Inquiry into the events of Bloody Sunday, right down to the local parish notes.

She has previously published eight women's fiction novels. Her first thriller, Her Name Was Rose, was published in 2018 and became a USA Today bestseller, followed by Apple of My Eye and Forget Me Not in 2019.

When she's not writing, she'll more than likely be found on Twitter @claireallan.
