The Hidden Girl
by Louise Millar
Hannah Riley and her musician husband, Will, hope that a move to the Suffolk countryside will promise a fresh start.
Hannah, a human rights worker, is desperate for a child and she hopes that this new life will realise her dream.
Yet when the snow comes, Will is working in London and Hannah is cut off in their remote village. Life in Tornley turns out to be far from idyllic, who are the threatening figures who lurk near their property at night? And why is her neighbour so keen to see them leave? Plus Will's behaviour is severely testing the bonds of trust.
Hannah has spent her professional life doing the right thing for other people. But as she starts to unbury a terrible crime, she realises she can no longer do that without putting everything she's ever wanted at risk.
But if she does nothing, the next victim could be her . . .
"Cranks up the tension brilliantly in this unpredictable and menacing drama."
"A creepy psychological thriller with a great twist."
The Sunday Mirror
"Millar turns the typically cozy village setting into something malevolent, generating considerable suspense in the process and adding a psychological thriller element reminiscent of Ruth Rendell."
"Phone in sick, fire up the Nespresso machine, get the fire on and tuck-in to 'The Hidden Girl'. Deliciously unnerving."
John Gordon Sinclair, author of Blood Whispers
"No one does creepy quite like Louise Millar. I challenge you not to check under your bed at least once. I loved this book."
Tamar Cohen, auther of The Broken
"This seriously creepy psychological thriller set deep in the Suffolk countryside is Louise Millar's best book yet. With a twist I did not see coming, it will make urbanites dreaming of bucolic bliss think again."
Alex Marwood, author of The Wicked Girls and The Killer Next Door
"A brilliantly creepy page-turner"
"A gripping thriller"
"A chilling psychological thriller that will baffle and disturb the reader, sustaining a level of tension and uncertainty to the last page."
Rachel Abbott author of Only The Innocent
"Millar's taut, intelligent writing scores top marks for suspense and atmosphere...thrilling, chilling and dangerously seductive."
The Lancashire Evening Post
"Another great psychological drama [from Louise Millar]... the slow-building tension will ensure you'll be hooked right up till the last page"
"Creeping menace, a couple in conflict and a community with secrets. You'll never want to stay home alone again!"
CL Taylor, author of The Accident
"A slow-burning psychological drama which ramps up the tension towards a cracking denouement."
Emyln Rees, author of The Hunted
