    Emma Healey

    Product Code: BTOTE
    Paperback
    From the Costa First Novel Award 2014 winner, Whistle in the Dark is a beautiful exploration of mental health and love and has been praised as "a fast-paced, gripping read" by Closer magazine.

    When Lana goes missing for four desperate days and returns refusing to speak of what happened, Jen fears the very worst. She thinks she's failed as a mother, that her daughter is beyond reach and that she must do something to bring her back.

    The family returns to London where everyone but Jen seems happy to carry on as normal. Jen's husband Hugh thinks she's going crazy - and their eldest daughter Meg is tired of Lana getting all the attention. But Jen knows Lana has changed, and can't understand why. Does the answer lie in those four missing days, and how can Jen find out?

  • Elizabeth is Missing

    Emma Healey

    Product Code: ALZTU
    Paperback
    This is a Sunday Times Bestseller. Elizabeth is Missing is the stunning, smash-hit debut novel from new author Emma Healey. "A thrillingly assured, haunting and unsettling novel, I read it at a gulp". (Deborah Moggach, author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel). "Elizabeth Is Missing will stir and shake you: the most likeably unreliable of narrators, real mystery at its compassionate core...". (Emma Donoghue, author of Room). "Resembling a version of Memento written by Alan Bennett". (Daily Telegraph). "One of those mythical beasts, the book you cannot put down". (Jonathan Coe, author of The Rotters Club). "Every bit as compelling as the frenzied hype suggests. Gripping, haunting". (Observer). "If you're after a read you can't put down, then look no further". (New!). Meet Maud. Maud is forgetful. She makes a cup of tea and doesn't remember to drink it. She goes to the shops and forgets why she went. Sometimes her home is unrecognizable - or her daughter Helen seems a total stranger. But there's one thing Maud is sure of: her friend Elizabeth is missing. The note in her pocket tells her so. And no matter who tells her to stop going on about it, to leave it alone, to shut up, Maud will get to the bottom of it. Because somewhere in Maud's damaged mind lies the answer to an unsolved seventy-year-old mystery. One everyone has forgotten about. Everyone, except Maud...Emma Healey is 28 years old and grew up in London. She has spent most of her working life in libraries, bookshops and galleries. She completed the MA in Creative Writing: Prose at UEA in 2011. Elizabeth is Missing is her first novel..
