Frantically searching the supermarket, best friends Becky and Jess know three year-old Noah can't have wandered far. But when security cameras show a mysterious figure leading the boy away from the Calais shopping centre, the horrifying terror dawns.
The French authorities immediately launch their emergency response procedures, pasting images and descriptions of Noah on every television, radio and newspaper stand. They've never failed to locate a missing child within 48 hours. But as the hours become days, the chances of finding Noah alive diminish.
With neither speaking the language, Jess and Becky can only rely on each other to hunt for clues to the identity of who abducted Noah and why. But when they meet an old friend of Jess' late husband, they learn there is far more at stake than just the safe return of Noah.
A breathless and emotional thriller, tapping into every parent's worst nightmare, with a twist you WILL NOT see coming. Perfect for fans of The Missing and Broadchurch.
