About the Author

While working as a GP, Jane Shemilt completed a postgraduate diploma in Creative Writing at Bristol University and went on to study for the MA in Creative Writing at Bath Spa, gaining both with distinction. Her first novel, Daughter, was selected for the Richard and Judy Book Club, shortlisted for the Edgar Award and the Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize, and went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 2014. She and her husband, a professor of neurosurgery, have five children and live in Bristol.

Reviews

We absolutely loved this book. It's about a GP and her family and the sudden horror that devastates their lives when their 16-year-old daughter disappears one night. It's difficult to believe that this accomplished book is a debut * Judy Finnigan, Richard and Judy book club *
Ostensibly a suspense novel about the disappearance of a teenage girl, this taut and thought-provoking debut novel explores a working mother's guilt, something all-too familiar to many of us * Woman & Home *
Thrilling, yet written with depth and subtlety, and tender insight into parental love * Tessa Hadley *
Complex and baffling. Jane Shemilt builds layer upon layer of tension in a novel you won't be able to put down * TESS GERRITSEN *
Gripping to the last page! * My Weekly *
Thrilling * Sunday Express *
Clever * Sun *
Taut and thought-provoking * Sunday Mirror *
Utterly gripping. A tautly coiled spring of suspicion and suspense which builds to a devastating ending * Mail On Sunday *
A wonderful plot, full of tantalising reasons to read on, and of course with a killer twist at the end. What impressed me most was (. . .) the impossibility of truly knowing those closest to us, the pressures of parenthood - in particular working motherhood, and the terrible loss at the heart of all parenting: they grow up and away * Christopher Wakling, author of What I Did *
