Product description

Did she leave, or was she taken? The day Adam Dunne's girlfriend, Sarah, fails to return from a Barcelona business trip, his perfect life begins to fall apart. Days later, the arrival of her passport and a note that reads 'I'm sorry - S' sets off real alarm bells. He vows to do whatever it takes to find her. Adam is puzzled when he connects Sarah to a cruise ship called the Celebrate - and to a woman, Estelle, who disappeared from the same ship in eerily similar circumstances almost exactly a year before. To get the answers, Adam must confront some difficult truths about his relationship with Sarah. He must do things of which he never thought himself capable. And he must try to outwit a predator who seems to have found the perfect hunting ground...

When Sarah's passport is mailed home with a note that says 'I'm sorry', a devastated Adam decides he will do whatever it takes to find his missing girlfriend. He boards a cruise ship after discovering it was the last place Sarah was seen. While the cruise company deny anything suspicious, Adam's investigation reveals that Sarah is not the only person to have gone missing from the same ship. With thoroughly engaging characters, this taut and thrilling mystery delivers in every possible way. With so many questions and tons of surprising twists, it will be difficult for any reader not to attempt finishing in one sitting. This is Irish author Catherine Ryan Howard's fiction debut and proves she is one talent that needs to be kept on our radar. Gripping stuff!
