I couldn't put it down. Every single character in Gone Astray has a strong and unique emotional story to tell, and Michelle Davies manages to extract every ounce of threat from the powerful emotions of envy and greed. The relationship between DC Maggie Neville and DCI Umpire is compelling, and it's great to see an FLO take centre stage. Gone Astray is highly recommended, and I can't wait to read the next one -- Rachel Abbott A clever but all too believable crime thriller that's right on the money when it comes to creepy, twisted plots -- Claire Frost Fabulous I loved it. It's a brilliant, compelling read, with characters who came alive and were completely believable, as was the heart-wrenching portrayal of the anguish suffered by the parents of a missing child -- Debbie Howells, author of The Bones of You A tense, clever look at how quickly paradise can turn into hell. I read it in one sitting -- Erin Kelly, author of The Poison Tree
