It's going to be a summer she'll never forget.

Claire's little sister Holly has been working on the millionaire's playground of Martha's Vineyard, going to barefoot beach parties and flirting with the local rich kids. But now she's missing and none of the locals seem to care, including the police. They think a message Claire received is proof she's safe.

But Claire knows for a fact that her sister didn't send it.

What will she have to risk to find out the truth? Who are the locals protecting? And what does it have to do with another girl who went missing five years ago?

An unputdownable psychological thriller summer read from the #1 bestselling author, for fans of Heidi Perks, Claire Douglas and Lucy Clarke.
