She went missing. He moved on. A whole world of secrets remainedâ€•until now.
Finn and Layla are young, in love, and on vacation. Theyâ€™re driving along the highway when Finn decides to stop at a service station to use the restroom. He hops out of the car, locks the doors behind him, and goes inside. When he returns Layla is goneâ€•never to be seen again. That is the story Finn told to the police. But it is not the whole story.
Ten years later Finn is engaged to Laylaâ€™s sister, Ellen. Their shared grief over what happened to Layla drew them close and now they intend to remain together. Still, thereâ€™s something about Ellen that Finn has never fully understood. His heart wants to believe that she is the one for him...even though a sixth sense tells him not to trust her.
Then, not long before he and Ellen are to be married, Finn gets a phone call. Someone from his past has seen Laylaâ€•hiding in plain sight. There are other odd occurrences: Long-lost items from Laylaâ€™s past that keep turning up around Finn and Ellenâ€™s house. Emails from strangers who seem to know too much. Secret messages, clues, warnings. If Layla is aliveâ€•and on Finnâ€™s trailâ€•what does she want? And how much does she know?
A tour de force of psychological suspense, Bring Me Back will have you questioning everything and everyone until its stunning climax.
