The Crime Stack: After You Were Gone by Vikki Wakefield

For the November Crime Stack, Text Publishing has kindly offered 20 copies of After You Were Gone by Adelaide author Vikki Wakefield.

The first adult crime book by award-winning author Vikki Wakefield is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that poses the questions: How far would you go to find your child?

In a busy street market, Abbie lets go of six-year-old Sarah’s hand. When she turns around, her daughter isn’t there. After a full-scale search and a high-profile investigation, there is still no trace of Sarah.

Six years later, Abbie is in love and getting married. Her family, despite their problems, have seen her through her worst imaginings-only Abbie’s mother seems unwilling to let her move on. Her fragile peace is constantly threatened: not knowing what happened to Sarah is like living with a curse.

After You Were Gone is a gripping novel of psychological suspense that explores themes of gaslighting and coercion, family trauma, and mother/daughter relationships. Vikki Wakefield successfully makes the jump from YA fiction to adult fiction in a book that will satisfy thriller-hungry readers of Megan Miranda, Mary Kubica, and Shari Lapena.

The Crime Stack is a benefit for Sisters in Crime members. Every month there are 20 books to win in a random draw of members.
