"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?"--Provided by publisher.

The Night She Disappeared : A Novel

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

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.

The Night She Disappeared : A Novel

Publishers Weekly


(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

In this excellent thriller from bestseller Jewell (The Family Upstairs), Tallulah and Zach, both 19, disappear after a date night that starts at a pub and takes the unmarried couple to a country estate in Surrey, England. Left behind is their infant son, whose care is assumed by Tallulah's distraught mother, Kim. A year later, Sophie Beck, a writer of cozy mysteries, moves into a cottage near the estate with her partner, Shaun Gray, who has just accepted a teaching position at a local school. While Shaun prepares for the new semester, Sophie discovers a hand-lettered cardboard sign in the garden that reads "Dig Here." When digging reveals what might be a vital clue to Tallulah and Zach's disappearance, Sophie joins forces with Kim, who has never given up hope that Tallulah is still alive. Together, the two women search for the truth of what happened. Not every plot twist is plausible, but the backstory makes readers question everything they think they know as things cleverly unfold. Jewell is in top form in this suspenseful, satisfying story. Agent: Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary. (Sept.)
