Watched by Mickey da Cruz, a small-time gangster, young widow Alice Aron arrives with her two young sons on a Mediterranean island. Within hours Alice's seven-year-old has disappeared, apparently abducted. Lucy Wadham's riveting thriller received international acclaim on publication for its portrait of a violent place ruled by ancient enmities, in which the disappearance of a child will test a loyalty too far.
Lucy Wadham was born in London in 1964 and educated at Oxford. She works in Paris as a freelance journalist and is married with two children. Lost, her first novel, was published in 2000 to great acclaim.
