Preparing to leave for a Florida vacation with her two children, Nina Landry anxiously awaits the return of her fifteen-year-old daughter, Charlie, who had spent the night at a friend's house, but Nina begins to worry when Charlie does not come home, and no one--the police, Charlie's friends, even Charlie's father--takes the disappearance seriously. 40,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

It’s Nina Landry’s birthday, and she’s supposed to have her kids ready to leave in a few hours for a Christmas holiday in Florida with her new boyfriend, but her fifteen-year-old daughter Charlie spent the night at a friend’s and hasn’t come home yet. Not by ten a.m., not by eleven. Nina is getting angry---they have a plane to catch, and Charlie hasn’t even bothered to pack. As time passes, though slower and slower by the minute, Nina becomes uneasy. Her anger gives way to worry, and that worry quickly builds into panic.

By one p.m., she’s wondering, has Charlie run away, or has something far worse happened? And why won’t anyone---not the cops, not Charlie’s friends, not Charlie’s father---take her disappearance seriously?

As day turns to night on their home of Sandling Island sixty miles from London, and a series of ominous secrets leads Nina from sickening suspicion to deadly certainty, the question becomes less whether she and her daughter will leave the island in time and more whether they’ll ever leave it again.

In Losing You, the newest thriller from the long-acclaimed master of psychological suspense, Nicci French unravels one mother’s life and replaces it with every mother’s worst nightmare.

The book with no chapters that kept me in suspense from the first page. It was good that there were no breaks because I pretty much read it in one sitting!
Nice twist to the end, didn't see it coming!

This is an intense read, which is agreeable with its content. A good language. But the ending - unnecessary long, kind of trivial, like in the movies about psychopaths: you think he/she is already dead - but no such luck... If not for that, it would be a 5 stars book in the literature of this genre.

This book was fantastic. I couldn't put it down-read it in two nights and it usually takes me a week to get through a book.
