Twisted - Lynda La PlanteYour teenage daughter, supposedly at a sleepover at a friend’s house doesn’t come home. Then it turns out she wasn’t where she was supposed to be at all.  Every parent’s worst nightmare is explored in Twisted, the new gripper from Lynda La Plante.

Marcus and Lena Fulford are wealthy, attractive and successful: their strikingly beautiful teenage daughter Amy, seems settled and content. Financial pressures and keeping up appearances are taking their toll on an already strained relationship, however and divorce proceedings soon follow. It’s an understandable communication breakdown between a warring couple living apart that means they don’t realise Amy is missing. Saturday, Sunday, Monday morning pass before Lena tries to get in touch. Then school reports her missing and it’s clear something’s not right.  Not right at all. DI Victor Reid fears the worst.

A family under constant police and press scrutiny, a father who seems to have a false alibi, a mother whose world is crumbling, a detective under pressure from his superiors… all conspire to create a pressure cooker of a novel.  And all the while, where is Amy? Lies and betrayal mount as the hunt for a missing girl becomes a search for a body…
