Five years ago, Susannah Harper's son Joel went missing without a trace. Bereft of her son and then of her husband, Susannah tries to accept that she may never know for certain what has happened to her lost loved ones. But then, on the last night of Hull Fair, a fortune-teller makes an eerie prediction-on Christmas Eve, Joel will finally come back to her. As her carefully-constructed life begins to unravel, Susannah is drawn into a world of psychics and charlatans, half-truths and hauntings, friendships and betrayals, forcing her to confront the buried truths of her family's past where nothing and no one are quite as they seem.

Professional reviews

"A grief-obsessed mother struggles to understand what has happened to her missing son and what is happening to her. Emma Gregory narrates this chilling story in a voice that sounds vulnerable, confused, and emotionally charged. As Susannah, the mother, tells her story in the first person, the ominous tone of her account reveals a disturbing mother love, personal alienation, suspicions, and madness. Gregory matches her delivery to the emotional upheaval experienced by this middle-class English family. She expertly depicts their pain and feelings of helplessness in this richly detailed mystery.
