Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone and The Family Upstairs comes another riveting work of "gloriously twisted" (Marie Claire) psychological suspense. On a beautiful summer night in a charming English suburb, a young woman and her boyfriend disappear after partying at the massive country estate of a new college friend. One year later, a writer moves into a cottage on the edge of the woods that border the same estate. Known locally as the Dark Place, the dense forest is the writer's favorite area for long walks and it's on one such walk that she stumbles upon a mysterious note that simply reads, "DIG HERE." Could this be a clue towards what has happened to the missing young couple? And what exactly is buried in this haunted ground? With her signature "rich, dark, and intricately twisted" (Ruth Ware, New York Times bestselling author) prose, Lisa Jewell has crafted a dazzling work of suspense that will keep on the edge of your seat until the final page"-- Provided by publisher.

    In England, a young couple, parents of a small child, disappear without a trace. A year later, a novelist moves into the area and soon finds herself caught up in the mystery of what happened to the missing couple. Did they run off together, leaving their child behind? Did one kill the other and then flee? Were they both murdered? Jewell takes an interesting approach here, telling the story through alternating chapters set in the past and the present, showing us the events leading up to the disappearance and the novelist's search for the answer to the mystery. Jewell, who burst onto the literary scene with 1998's Ralph's Party, is skilled at keeping readers on their toes, always challenging our expectations of where a story is heading. Many times during the course of this novel, readers will find that their theory about what happened to the missing couple is completely wrong because the author has led them into a trap. If you like to be kept guessing, this one's for you. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
