A novel by

 
 
Peter is a planning officer at Nottingham City Council. Every day on the bus to work he notices a girl who spends the journey scribbling in a battered notebook. On the day she disappears, instead of getting off at her usual stop, the girl waits and dashes off to the railway station instead, leaving her notebook on the bus. Peter picks it up and starts to read... In the ensuing police search, Peter, having read Sophie's diary, knows more about her than anyone else. He also knows that the truth about what finally happened to her is a truth he must keep entirely to himself.
