A race against time that changes everything

The Nurse

The unputdownable new book from the bestselling author of Her Name Was Rose.

‘One of those stories that stays with you after you read the final page. Disturbing… it got under my skin. Highly recommended.’ – bestselling author Patricia Gibney

Everyone has a secret. But some are worse than you could ever imagine.
Nell Sweeney has led an ordinary life. Every day she walks to and from the hospital where she works as a nurse, believing that no harm can befall her.
Until one day she is taken.
Because someone out there has a secret. Someone out there has been watching Nell – and they’ve been watching others like her too.
Nell is the unlucky one – she was in the wrong place at the wrong time. And if she isn’t found soon, someone will make sure that she isn’t the last woman to be taken…
A chilling, gripping read, perfect for fans of Clare Mackintosh and Gillian McAllister.
