"I know her inside out. I know what she's thinking, I know what she wants. So I can't give up on her, she knows I never will. Some friendships fizzle out. Rachel and Clara promised theirs would last forever. They met in high school when Rachel was the shy, awkward new girl and Clara was the friend everyone wanted. Instantly, they fell under one another's spell and nothing would be the same again. Now in their late twenties Rachel has the television career, the apartment and the boyfriend, while Clara's life is spiraling further out of control. Yet despite everything, they remain inextricably bound. Then Rachel's news editor assigns her to cover a police press conference, and she is shocked when she arrives to learn that the subject is Clara, reported missing. Is it abduction, suicide or something else altogether? Imagine discovering something about your oldest friend that forces you to question everything you've shared together. The truth is always there. But only if you choose to see it"-- Provided by publisher.

A fair effort for a first time novelist, but still not worth the time it took to read. Amateurish character development. I must give the author credit for creating enough interest in the story line for me to keep reading, in order to find out the truth. A young woman fakes her own disappearance in order to frame her former best friend for her murder. The best friend finds out it's a set up. In the very end, BFF convinces faker to commit suicide, which faker does. Lame.

This is a nasty mean-spirited little book, shallow, poorly written and shrill throughout. The characters were unlikable. The plot didn't really make sense. I can't see how it got published at all.

Psychological Brittish thriller about two women who become very good friends - they seem to know what the other is thinking - and how their relationship starts to unravel when secrets are revealed. Deeply psychological novel ; not all what you it seems is the truth. Very good first novel.
