About the Author

Lisa Jewell had always planned to write her first book when she was fifty. In fact she wrote it when she was twenty-seven and had just been made redundant from her job as a secretary. Inspired by Nick Hornby's High Fidelity, a book about young people just like her who lived in London, she wrote the first three chapters of what was to become her first novel, Ralph's Party. It went on to become the bestselling debut novel of 1998.

Fifteen bestselling novels later, she lives in London with her husband and their two daughters. Lisa writes every day in a local cafe where she can drink coffee, people-watch and, without access to the internet, actually get some work done . . .

Reviews

"A MISSING GIRL. A BURIED SECRET. From the acclaimed author of I Found You and the Richard & Judy bestseller, The Girls, comes a compulsively twisty psychological thriller that will keep you gripped to the very last page." * from the publisher's description *
"Both utterly gripping and startlingly original. Prepare to be hooked." * Sun *
"I defy you to put this addictive book down until you reach the final heart-breaking page" * Daily Express *
"What begins as a story about the mother of a missing girl starting a new relationship as she comes terms with her grief morphs into a gripping, disturbing and utterly fascinating tale about what really happened to young Ellie Mack. I've been a Lisa Jewell fan for a long time and in this book, as in all her others, she deftly weaves a compelling plot with an emotional depth that leaves you gasping. In Then She Was Gone she has created a book that is dark and claustrophobic but also heartfelt and moving. Then She Was Gone packs a huge emotional punch that will leave you winded. I loved it." -- CL Taylor, author of The Escape, The Lie and The Missing
"A dark, compulsive psychological thriller, yet one which is also uplifting and tender. I absolutely loved Then She Was Gone." -- Rachel Rhys, author of Dangerous Crossing 9733
"A tense clever page-tuner that everyone will be talking about." -- Adele Parks
"She has departed from her usual chick lit and gone full tilt into a psycho thriller, but she's lost none of her brilliance. Indeed, I think this is my favourite of hers so far... Deeply emotional and incredibly clever. Bravo" * Mail Online *
"Unnerving, and with a juicy reveal, this is rightly a modern classic" * Grazia *
"Jewell builds a gripping novel around a maze of dark secrets, a tautly wound psychological thriller in which the suspense builds slowly. Her storytelling is immaculate, hopping between past and present, and in and out of characters. It's a tough read at times, but Jewell always keeps everything moving. The intrigue never flags as she pushed towards a redemptive resolution. As astute and emotionally charged read, riddled with creepiness. Fully recommended" * Irish News *
"Smart and engrossing" * Sunday Mirror *
"Both utterly gripping and startlingly original Prepare to be hooked" * Sun *
"After last year's fantastic I Found You, Lisa Jewell is on a roll with another fast paced and cleverly plotted psychological thriller ... If this sounds quite run of the mill, it's not. Lisa Jewell writes with such a keen eye for detail, so much heart and yet deviousness that I can't wait to read what she comes up with next" * Red *
"If you're looking for something darker and twistier Girl On The Train style, Lisa Jewell's new thriller, Then She Was Gone ... is one to buy" * Voucher Codes *
"Smart and engrossing, this deftly plotted thriller will tug at your heartstrings" * The People *
"This compulsive psychological read from one of our favourite authors will leave you breathless" * Fabulous Magazine *
"pleasingly twisted... I gulped this in one long, thirsty session, sitting by the pool on holiday." -- Sam Baker * The Pool *
"This book was simply perfect - easy to fall into, hard to escape, and with so much to figure out you barely wanted to leave anyway." * Bookbag *
"Chilling and heartbreaking" * Good Housekeeping *
"Jewell builds a gripping novel around a maze of dark secrets, a tautly wound psychological thriller in which the suspense builds slowly. Fully recommended" * Dorset Echo *
"Jewell has always been a favourite writer. Seeing her fully embrace her dark side is a massive treat. A dark, sad and deeply disturbing exploration of the aftermath of the loss of a beloved child, Then She Was Gone deserves to be a huge hit." -- Alex Marwood
"an engrossing read" * Mature Times *
"beautifully told... the reader is taken from heartbreak to hope via a series of twists and turns worthy of the best thrillers" * LivingEDGE *
