2017: 19-year-old Tallulah is going out on a date, leaving her baby with her mother, Kim.

Kim watches her daughter leave, and, as late evening turns into night, which turns into early morning, she waits for her return. And waits.

The next morning, Kim phones Tallulah's friends, who tell her that Tallulah was last seen heading to a party at a house in the nearby woods called Dark Place. 

She never returns.

2019: Sophie is walking in the woods near the boarding school where her boyfriend has just started work as a head teacher when she sees a note fixed to a tree. 

'DIG HERE' 

A cold case, an abandoned mansion, family trauma and dark secrets lie at the heart of Lisa Jewell's remarkable new novel.

FABULOUS, FABULOUS LISTEN

For lovers of the mystery/suspense genre, this is a book not to be missed. I think this is the best Lisa Jewell book yet and this author just continues to outdo herself. As far as writing is concerned, there is not one foot out of place. The plot is tight and well constructed, the characters are each well drawn and the performance by Joanne Froggatt is perfect. It is a book I just wanted to never end and thoroughly recommend to all lovers of good books.

Brilliantly addictive!

If you are debating listening to this book, let this review show you it’s a must listen. Brilliant and the narrator is wonderful. Captivating and addictive from the first chapter. Lisa Jewell you’ve done it again.

Unputdownable

Brilliant from start to finish. Another masterpiece by Lisa Jewell. Joanne Frogatt brings it to life beautifully.

Boring Cliché after Boring Cliché

This has such great reviews. Incomprehensible that anyone could have enjoyed it. Tear-jerkingly boring. So, completely characterless girl who never tells a joke, laughs or says anything interesting but is a simpering cliché of a heroine - so bland it's actually weird - loves mummy, hardly ever wears make up, doesn't approve of swearing and studies hard - oh, wait, she's also, very importantly 'not posh', gets mixed up with evil posh people who have 'priveleged laughter' and are generally bad. Not only utterly banal characterisation making the whole thing absurd (not helped by the narrator's baby voice for the heroine), but plot involving spiral staircases, hidden tunnels and clues in paintings that a second woman-with-no-personality randomly catches sight of while being fed clues. Misogynistic, pathetically trying to grab the lowest common denominator reader with simple, salt of the earth heroine and evil posh anti-heroine (the only half-drawn character in the book) and just....God, so boring.

Excellent book it’s a fantastic narration from Joanne Froggatt

Fab listen, I had to finish the story much to my family’s annoyance (we are on a holiday) and every spare minute I plugged my AirPods in. Really engaging and actually made me very emotional right at the end. Brilliant narration brilliant story and like all Lisa s books, predictably good!

Entertaining but average

Reasonably well structured but unrealistic conclusion with actions from the protagonists that just aren't believable.

A great Summer read

Lisa Jewell has long been a favourite author of mine. This must read has plenty of twists and exciting turns leaving you trying to second guess the ending.
Definitely worth buying.

Thoroughly Enjoyed!

I did suspect the twist however the story line did have me questioning everything throughout.
The narrator made it a very easy and interesting listen.
highly recommend.

Kept me completely hooked

I LOVED this book. The 3 different time periods
kept me intrigued & keen to keep reading. This is one of this “just 1 more chapter” books! It was easy to picture the characters given the vivid descriptions of the key players, their personalities & traits that developed through the story. Twists & turns throughout, I highly recommend.
