Summary

One ordinary morning, after 15 years of marriage, Laurie's husband Mark vanishes, leaving behind his phone and wallet.

For weeks, Laurie covers up his disappearance and carries on working as a cleaner at the local university, visiting the father she was estranged from for 15 years who now has dementia, and drinking industrial quantities of cheap wine. When she finally reports him as missing, the police are suspicious. Why did she take so long?

This is just one of the questions this intriguing novel poses. Why did the normally peaceable Mark get into a fight at work and lose his job? What made Laurie fall out with the woman in the flat above, one of her few friends? Why didn't she speak to her father for such a long time? Is she right to be suspicious about the carer who seems to have taken over his life and what has any of this got to do with a years old murder of a local child? And is Mark dead or alive?
