  • Genre: Crime

What you need to know before your trail

Eleven years ago my sister Lola vanished from my aunt’s cottage in Cornwall. Now I’m back, and I’m no closer to understanding why she ran away. What secrets was she keeping?

Memories come to me in snippets, but something is still missing. Then a body is discovered in a cave below the cliffs. No one knows how long it’s been there. Is it Lola?

The next night I wake, knowing someone is there, standing by my bed. I can hear them breathing. What do they want? Am I getting too close to the truth?

Did Lola ever leave?

Travel Guide


The town of Newlyn features a bit in the novel as this is where the body is found but locations don’t play a big part in the novel.

The other setting is the village of Trevyan which is fictional and this is where the cottage in the novel is situated.

This is not really a location – based novel but it’s nice to escape to Cornwall as a backdrop.
