Carrie thought her son was dead. She was wrong.
She’d only taken her eyes off him for a second. But that was all it took for a perfect day at the beach to turn to horror. Cal disappeared beneath the waves.
His body was never found.
Seven years later, Carrie has a new family. But her life in the sleepy Cornish town of Devil’s Cove is about to be torn apart again. A boy washes up on the
shore. The cove’s residents believe it’s missing local child Noah Pengelly.
It’s not. It’s Carrie’s son. And he’s alive.
Now a teenager, Cal is covered in scars and suffering from unknown trauma. Where has he been these last seven years? Is he the key to finding young Noah
alive? Carrie is desperate for answers but there’s a problem. Cal cannot speak.
As a disturbing chain of events is set in motion, Carrie and the people of Devil’s Cove will discover that the horrifying truth lies closer to home than they think.
A dark and suspenseful page-turner set on the rugged coast of Cornwall, The Cove is the first book of a gripping new trilogy that will you shake you to the core.
