'One of those books you just can't put down... stayed up until 2 am... a whirlwind of action which keeps you glued to the book.' Goodreads Reviewer

She took a mouthful of the sweet liquid and started to feel a pounding in her head. Arms went around her waist and she was half lifted and half pulled. The last thing she was aware of was her head hitting a step...

Sixteen-year-old Emily had everything to live for. A bright, beautiful teenager with a promising future ahead of her. But one dark night her life is cut short.

The police say it's an accident. Her parents think she was murdered.

Detective Rachel Prince is called in to investigate the tragic incident. And she discovers a chilling link with the suspicious death of another student who stayed in the same old, sprawling guesthouse in the heart of Edinburgh two years before Emily.

Just as Rachel realises she's on the hunt for a serial killer, a painful relationship from her past catches up with her. But will her secrets put someone she loves in danger? And can Rachel stop the murderer, before they strike again?

A breath-taking, tense roller-coaster crime thriller featuring unforgettable series detective Rachel Prince. Now She's Gone is perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Peter James and Karin Slaughter.
