After She'd Gone
After She'd Gone: The unmissable must-read psychological thriller to keep you up at night in 2022 by Alex Dahl

'An irresistible read' DAILY MAIL

Liv keeps a low profile in Sandefjord, Norway. She has never told her son about the secrets she carries or the life she lived before he was born. She will do anything to keep him safe.

Anastasia's life is transformed when she moves from Russia to Milan to work as a model. She's rich. She's desired. But there's a dark side to the high-pressure catwalk shows that she will do anything to escape.

Selma is a journalist in Oslo. She's investigating scandals in the modelling industry, but can't get her article published. Then a woman goes missing in Sandefjord. Now Selma must uncover the biggest story of her life . . .

Unsettling, gripping and glamorous, this is a timely and cathartic psychological thriller, perfect for fans of Claire Douglas, TM Logan and CL Taylor.
