NYPD detective Lex Cole tracks a missing Brooklyn teen whose bright future is endangered by the ghosts of his unknown father's past, in this highly anticipated follow up to A Map of the Dark.

How can you get lost in a city that never sleeps?

Nineteen-year-old Titus 'Crisp' Crespo is a smart kid on his way to a bright future. But on the eve of his high school graduation, a chance encounter with a cop who can't see beyond the colour of his skin puts everything in jeopardy.

When he doesn't return home two nights later his mother knows something is wrong. Seeking answers, she turns to Detective Lex Cole, who starts to follow his traces: a bad decision, a trip into a dangerous part of the city; blood...

As Crisp heads into trouble and discovers the New York he's lived alongside for years but never really seen, Lex, a day later, must find out what happened last night - before it's too late.

'Fans of Liane Moriarty will adore Jessica Strawser' Kate MorettiEver wonder what your friends really think of you? Drinks in hand, a group of neighbourhood women gather around a fire pit to enjoy a rare child-less Saturday night. Giddy with freedom, they drink too much, share secrets they wish, perhaps, they hadn't, and enjoy getting to know each other better. The single newcomer. The imperfect mom. The new-born parents. The military wife. The almost divorcee.Come Monday Morning, one of them is gone. Everyone knows something about everyone else in the small town of Yellow Springs, but no one can make sense of the disappearance. Kristin was a sociable mother, school administrator, and doctor's wife who didn't seem all that bothered by her impending divorce. When the investigation launches, it turns up more questions than answers - with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Paul at the centre. For her closest neighbour, Clara, the incident triggers memories she thought she'd put behind her. As the town's scrutiny turns in on her, her own suspicions about what really happened that night quickly grow. Meanwhile, the neighbourhood's newest addition, Izzy, is determined not to jump to any conclusions.But across the lawns, appearances can be deceiving, and the most beautiful houses can hide the ugliest secrets. A truly gripping domestic thriller of friendship, manipulation and betrayal that fans of Desperate Housewives, The Family Next Door and Liane Moriarty's HBO hit Big Little Lies have been waiting for.***************What readers are saying 'Twisty and engrossing, this is one thriller you don't want to miss!''I was gripped and glued to the page' 'I was drawn into the story from the first page and felt like these women were MY friends' 'What a clever page-turner with some great character dynamics and a few twisties that sucked me in and kept me guessing through to the end'
