This addictive debut will keep you up late into the night! * Karen Dionne, author of The Marsh King's Daughter on The French Girl * With its growing atmosphere of dread and its moody environs, The Missing Years begins with a Gothic hint that rapidly segues into a suspenseful thriller with a breathless twist of a denouement. * New York Journal of Books * This compelling mystery left me on the edge of my seat... If you liked the author's debut work The French Girl, you will love The Missing Years. * Tulsa Book Review * Elliott follows her well-reviewed debut, The French Girl, with an equally atmospheric novel that keeps the reader intrigued and off-balance all the way through. * Booklist * Like The French Girl, this manages to be both uncannily creepy and grounded in the true horror of human evil. * The Observer *
