A gripping new psychological thriller from S. J. Watson.
Blackwood Bay. An ordinary place, home to ordinary people.
It used to be a buzzing seaside destination. Now, ravaged by the effects of dwindling tourism and economic downturn, it’s a ghost town—and the perfect place for film-maker Alex to shoot her new documentary.
But the community is deeply suspicious of her intentions. After all, nothing exciting ever happens in Blackwood Bay — or does it?
