*This book is a part of a series, though it can be read as a stand-alone, there are a few references in the book to the others, but not enough to make you HAVE to read the previous books.*

When two eighteen-year-old girls go missing in Thailand, their families are thrust into the international spotlight: desperate, bereft, and frantic with worry. What were the girls up to before they disappeared?

Journalist Kate Waters always does everything she can to be first to the story, first with the exclusive, first to discover the truth--and this time is no exception. But she can't help but think of her own son, whom she hasn't seen in two years since he left home to go travelling.

As the case of the missing girls unfolds, they will all find that even this far away, danger can lie closer to home than you might think...

The British wording and terms threw me a bit at first, but I soon picked them up and fell into this story head first. 
As a mother of an almost 17-year-old, I was heartbroken along with Alex and Rosie's parents. I just know that I would be in the same if not a worse state if it was my daughter.
Kate was a refreshing contrast to the parents, to begin with. Though she soon gets thrown for her own loop.
The story is told in 2 parts, each chapter in the parts is either from the Reporter, the Mother, The Detective or from Alex's point of view. I loved getting different perspectives in the story. I felt as though I got to really know all the characters, and not a lot of the info was repeated, everything flowed extremely well.
