When troubled nurse Alina vanishes one night, it’s assumed she ran away from her violent husband. Until disgraced ex-teacher Emily Swanson moves into the couple’s vacated home.

Emily’s life is in ruins and she’s meant to be making a fresh start. But when she learns about the missing nurse, she sees a chance for redemption. Because finding Alina could help right the wrongs of Emily’s past. All she needs to do is follow the clues.

But what Emily doesn’t know is that Alina had a horrifying secret. One about the care foundation where she worked. And the closer Emily gets to uncovering the truth, the closer she gets to terrible danger.

Inspired by a shocking true crime, Next To Disappear will keep you guessing from the edge of your seat. Fans of Karin Slaughter, Angela Marsons & Gregg Olsen will enjoy this dark and twisty British series from Malcolm Richards.

Amazing.!5 star

I absolutely loved this book. I don’t really read books, but this one DEFINITELY grabbed me by the throat-sorry Emily Swanson. Lol. It made my heart race, it made me sad, it made me angry, and most of all in the end it made me happy. I’ve never read a book like this and I’m so happy that I read this one. 10/10 ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND55
