Charlotte
is looking after her best friend’s daughter the day she disappears. She thought the little girl was playing with her own children. She swears she only took her eyes off them for a second.

Now, Charlotte must do the unthinkable: tell her best friend Harriet that her only child is missing. The child she was meant to be watching.

Devastated, Harriet can no longer bear to see Charlotte. No one could expect her to trust her friend again.
Only now she needs to. Because two weeks later Harriet and Charlotte are both being questioned separately by the police. And secrets are about to surface.

Someone is hiding the truth about what really happened to Alice.

Unputdownable psychological suspense from an exciting new talent, perfect for fans of Shari Lapena's THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR and Claire Mackintosh's I LET YOU GO.

Gripping thriller

Good Housekeeping

‘The term “unputdownable” gets bandied around quite often in the book world – but believe us when we say this novel is the real deal. 5 STARS. ’

Heat Magazine

Now You See Her takes every parents’ worst nightmare and spins it into a tense psychological thriller that’s difficult to put down.’

Culture Fly, featured in their unmissable summer read roundup

‘With some beautifully engaging dialogue and highly reflective thought processes, the voices of these characters are articulate and carefully crafted. It is swift and engaging to read throughout.’

Nudge Books

Now You See Heris an absolutely gripping domestic thriller. From the very opening scene in the police station, I was hooked on this story! Brilliantly written and with a fantastic twist, I fully expect this to be a poolside favourite over the summer holiday season.

Jo's Book Blog

What a phenomenal, hair-raising, spine tingling, and energetic read this is. My first thought as I finished this book, was ‘one of the best books I have ever read’, but now, I have to say that that has changed now that I have had the time to digest Perks’ outstanding talent. Now You See Her is my most favourite book of all time, my most favourite book of 2018, and Heidi Perks has very quickly become one of my all-time favourite authors.

The Writing Garnet

An amazing read with two sides to it, Charlotte’s side and Harriet’s side, but there is only one truth.

BookRead2Day

I have a feeling this is going to be one of the most talked about reads this summer. The emphasis is very much on the characters, you will find yourself doubting them, questioning their motives, and desperately turning the pages to get to the truth.

Book Review Cafe

Now You See Her is an absolutely gripping domestic thriller. From the very opening scene in the police station, I was hooked on this story! Brilliantly written and with a fantastic twist, I fully expect this to be a poolside favourite over the summer holiday season.
