The gripping new thriller from the acclaimed author of The Chalk Man and The Hiding Place, about a man desperately searching for his missing family who falls under the sway of a sinister support group with a murderous agenda.
Three years ago, Gabe’s family disappeared. Most people think they died. Some of them blame Gabe. Hardly anyone believes the truth—that Gabe saw his daughter the day she and his wife disappeared, smiling at him from the back of a rusty old car speeding down the highway. So even though it’s been three years since that day, Gabe cannot give up hope. Even though he has given up everything else. His home, his job, his old life. He spends his days travelling up and down the highway and sleeping in service stations, searching for the car that took her.
It’s hard for most people to understand. But Gabe has found some who do in an online group set up by people who have also lost loved ones—who have suffered like him. They call themselves “The Other People.” Because isn’t that what everyone thinks: bad stuff only happens to “other people.”
When the car that Gabe saw driving away that night is found in a lake with a body inside, Gabe is suddenly under suspicion—and in danger. In desperation, he turns to The Other People for help. Because they are good people. They know what loss is like. They know what pain is like. They know what death is like. There’s just one problem…they want other people to know it too.
