A car accident.

Three missing girls.

A twenty-year mystery.

A woman on the verge of discovering the truth . . .

In a rural Wilshire town lies the Devil’s Corridor—a haunted road which has witnessed eerie happenings, from unexplained deaths to the sounds of a child crying in the night.

In this bucolic stretch of Southwest England famous for its otherworldly sites, nothing is more puzzling than the Olivia Rutherford case. Four girls were driving home. After their car crashed only one—Olivia—was found.

What happened to the girls who disappeared? On the twentieth anniversary of the tragedy, journalist Jenna Halliday has arrived in Wiltshire to cover the case. The locals aren’t happy with this outsider determined to dig into the past. Least of all Olivia.

Soon, Jenna starts receiving menacing notes. The locals have made it clear she’s not welcome. But someone is going to make her leave one way or another. Jenna’s been warned: she must get out of this town before she suffers a dark fate . . . and becomes another mystery attached to this place.


I received this book from the publisher through I am leaving this review voluntarily. 

Jenna travels to a small town in England to investigate the mysterious disappearance of 3 young women for her podcast. She finds very few people want to talk about the accident and what may have happened that night but those that do create an even bigger mystery.  

Then people start dying and Jenna gets the feeling someone is following her. Dead birds are being left on her doorstep and she is starting to receive menacing notes. 

This is a very atmospheric eerie book that keeps you on the edge of your seat while you try to figure out what happened to the three missing women. There are quite a few people who seem to be hiding things and worried about Jenna's story. No one seems to want her to dig too deep.  

The narrator was excellent, really kept me engaged and I flew through this book. Great debut.
