She sleeps, a pale girl in a white room . . .

Driving home one night, stuck behind a rusty old car, Gabe sees a little girl’s face appear in the rear window. She mouths one word: ‘Daddy.’

It’s his five-year-old daughter, Izzy.

He never sees her again. Three years later, Gabe spends his days and nights travelling up and down the motorway, searching for the car that took his daughter, refusing to give up hope, even though most people believe that Izzy is dead. Fran and her daughter, Alice, also put in a lot of miles on the motorway.

Not searching. But running. Trying to keep one step ahead of the people who want to hurt them.

Because Fran knows the truth. She knows what really happened to Gabe’s daughter. She knows who is responsible.

And she knows what they will do if they ever catch up with her and Alice . . .

  1. Tracey Harriman

    Gabe has promised faithfully that he’ll be home on time, to have dinner with his wife and daughter, and to read Izzy a bedtime story. But he’s running late. He’s stuck in traffic and the phone isn’t being answered at home. He’s studying the bumper stickers on the car in front and speculating who would drive such a car, when girl pops up on the back seat and looks at him. She mouths the word ‘Daddy’. He is in no doubt that it is his daughter so he tries to follow the car to find out what she is doing in there. Once the driver knows he’s being followed he takes evasive action and loses Gabe. On finally being able to call home, a police officer answers the phone with soul destroying news.

    Gabe spends the next 3 years living out of a camper van, trying to find his missing daughter. The daughter everyone else believes is dead.

    At the same time Fran and Alice are on the run. Knowing that they are being hunted. Knowing that they are never safe.

    What lengths would you go to, to find your missing child? This is a question that Gabe is faced with. He finds ‘The Other People’. They are people who, like him, have faced tragedy. They want to help. But he would have to help them in return. The stakes are high.

    Holding this book in my hands I was full of hope. I loved Tudor’s previous books and was looking forward to being captivated again. It didn’t disappoint! It was just creepy enough to make the hairs on my arms stand on end but not so much that I had to sleep with the light on.

    Tudor has a great way of drip feeding the story. A lot is withheld from the reader and at times I badly wanted to skip forward. I hate to use clichés but this was compelling. There are different characters with their own stories, but, of course, they are all in some way connected…it just takes a while to find out how. Which was why I ended up foregoing sleep and read the book in one sitting. I just needed to know.

    Gabe’s desperation radiated from the pages, as did Fran’s fear. How are they connected? Read the book and find out! No spoilers from me!

    A cracking read. Can’t wait for more from C J Tudor.
