My review

I totally loved this novel.

Isabelle Mattias disappeared from St Anne’s that was a popular school which parents thought they could trust the staff to care for and educate their children. The school alerted the police just after midday when Isabelle failed to turn up for breakfast and when she failed to turn up for one of her classes. Isabelle took no money or clothes and her passport was still in the school safe. So where has Isabelle disappeared to?. Superintendent Fenwick interviewed teaches and pupils at St Anne’s as blood was found on a wall beyond the school and are awaiting for DNA to see if the blood belongs to Isabelle. There is also Isabelle’s unsettling past that surface which makes Superintendent Fenwick even more concerned for the girl’s saftey.
