Alice Teale is missing. In a town full of secrets, hers was the biggest.

The gripping new thriller from the bestselling author of The Chosen Ones.

As usual, seventeen-year-old Alice Teale walked out of school at the end of a bright spring day.

She's not been seen since.

Alice was popular and well-liked, and her boyfriend, friends and family are desperate to find her. But when the police start asking questions, it becomes clear that almost everyone has something to hide.

Torn between a host of suspects, Detectives Beth Winter and Lucas Black don't know which way to turn. But then they receive a disturbing package: pages from Alice's precious diary.

Who could have sent them? And have they done with Alice?

Listen to a sample

A brilliantly plotted, perfectly clued story of the dark power of terrible truths. Compulsive reading from page one.

Gytha Lodge, author of She Lies in Wait

Alice Teale Is Missing is my kind of book. With exemplary prose and relentless plotting, Linskey puts shocking small town secrets under the microscope with superb results. The fresh-faced Beth Winter and the misanthropic Lucas Black are a pairing that shouldn't work but absolutely do. Dogged and intuitive, they are beating heart of this story and I can't wait to see where Linskey takes them next.

MW Craven, bestselling author of The Puppet Show

A masterful missing person thriller with great characters and plenty of twists - simply superb

Steve Cavanagh, bestselling author of Thirteen

He just keeps getting better and better. I was gripped by this one. Hooks you in and doesn't let go. Strength in characterisation as always - I was sad to let this one go

Luca Veste, author of The Six

Delving into the complex world of a missing teenager, Linskey nails the adolescent voice to uncover a dark trail of secrets, lies and betrayal. This is page-turning fiction with real heart
