Product description

Review

Genuinely surprising (The Guardian)

Beautifully written, tense and twisty tale (Sunday Mirror)

Taut, smartly written, empathetic and at times unbearably tense. . . The Boy That Never Was hits the bulls-eye (The Irish Independent)

Cleverly written. A tense domestic thriller that is full of surprises. Dig a little deeper and you will find the broken heartbeat of this book which is the irreparable grief of the loss of a child (The Mail on Sunday)

This is a debut novel that will catch fire (Nelson DeMille)

A truly remarkable novel. The Boy That Never Was is a pitch-perfect balance of driving plot and honest, complex human emotion. Written in a captivating, lyrical style and brilliantly structured, the story grips your heart from the first pages and simply never lets go (Jeffery Deaver)

The Boy That Never Was is that powerful thing, a beautifully written mystery driven by its exploration of the characters' innermost hearts - of the inexorable ripples that loss sends out, and the terrible damage people can do to those they love most. Both as a crime novel and as an emotional journey, it's gripping stuff (Tana French)
