C. L. Taylor - Il confine del silenzio
Sue Jackson è una donna realizzata: ha una famiglia felice, un marito con una solida carriera politica, una bella casa. Ma quando la figlia quindicenne Charlotte entra in coma in seguito a un grave incidente con un autobus, tutta la sua felicità va in pezzi. Eppure, se possibile, il ricovero della ragazzina in terapia intensiva non è l'incubo peggiore che Sue deve affrontare. C'è infatti il terribile sospetto che non si tratti di un incidente, ma di un tentativo di suicidio... Sue, disperata e in contrasto con il marito che nega qualsiasi ipotesi di suicidio, fa quello che solo una madre disperata può fare: apre il diario di Charlotte. "Nascondere questo segreto mi sta uccidendo" è la spaventosa frase che spunta dai meandri della vita di una ragazza inquieta. Sue scoprirà aspetti della vita della figlia, e della propria, che aveva disperatamente cercato di rimuovere, in un processo di discesa agli inferi che coincide con la scoperta di un male sempre più oscuro, sempre più difficile da arginare, che sta inghiottendo la vita di tutti...

C. L. Taylor - The ​Missing
‘The ​Missing has a delicious sense of foreboding from the first page, luring us into the heart of a family with terrible secrets and making us wait, with pounding hearts for the final, agonizing twist. Loved it’ Fiona Barton, Author of THE WIDOW You love your family. They make you feel safe. You trust them. But should you…? ‘A twisty-turny psychological thriller … Well-written, pacy and gripping’ Fabulous When fifteen-year-old Billy Wilkinson goes missing in the middle of the night, his mother, Claire, blames herself. She's not the only one. There isn't a single member of Billy's family that doesn't feel guilty. But the Wilkinsons are so used to keeping secrets from one another that it isn't until six months later, after an appeal for information goes horribly wrong, that the truth begins to surface. Claire is sure of two things – that Billy is still alive and that her friends and family had nothing to do with his disappearance. A mother's instinct is never wrong. Or is it? Sometimes those closest to us are the ones with the most to hide…

C. L. Taylor - A ​baleset
Sue ​Jackson mindig úgy gondolta, hogy a családja már nem is lehetne tökéletesebb, egészen addig a lidérces napig, amikor tizenöt éves lánya kilépett egy busz elé. A balesetet követően Charlotte kómába esik, Sue-nak pedig szembesülnie kell a ténnyel, hogy szinte alig tud valamit a lányáról. Gyermeke naplóját olvasva fáradhatatlanul kutat a legapróbb nyom után, ami választ adhatna a kérdésre, hogy miért akarja egy szeretett és kiegyensúlyozott tinédzser eldobni magától az életet, és ahogyan lassanként helyükre kerülnek a kirakós darabkái, feltűnik egy alak az asszony múltjából, valaki, akit örökre el akart felejteni... A gyanakvás, az aggodalom és a bizonytalanság szinte az őrületbe kergetik Sue-t, és már saját férjében és ismerőseiben sem képes megbízni. Vajon jogosak a félelmei, és valóban veszélyben van mindaz, ami fontos a számára, vagy csak a képzelete űz gonosz tréfát vele? C. L. Taylor regénye okosan megírt, lebilincselő pszichothriller, amely az emberi lélek legsötétebb bugyraiba kalauzol minket. "Egy elsőkönyves szerző hátborzongatóan izgalmas debütálása." (Woman Magazine)
