From the bestselling author of The Mistake comes a hauntingly powerful story about families and secrets and the dark shadows cast by the past.

Curl Curl, Sydney, January 1978.

Angie's a looker. Or she's going to be. She's only fourteen, but already, heads turn wherever she goes. Male heads, mainly ...

Jane worships her older cousin Angie. She spends her summer vying for Angie's attention. Then Angie is murdered. Jane and her family are shattered. They withdraw into themselves, casting a veil of silence over Angie's death.

Thirty years later, a journalist arrives with questions about the tragic event. Jane is relieved to finally talk about her adored cousin. And so is her family. But whose version of Angie's story - whose version of Angie herself - is the real one? And can past wrongs ever be made right?

The shocking truth of Angie's last days will force Jane to question everything she once believed. Because nothing - not the past or even the present - is as she once imagined.

'James has produced a cleverly plotted, eloquently written page-turner that shores up her status as Australia's queen of the domestic thriller.' Angela Savage, Ned Kelly Award-winning author

'The Lost Girls is the kind of novel that demands to be read in a single, breathless sitting. It's fast-paced and thrilling; a Jack-in-the-box kind of a novel that will have you on the edge the whole way through, guessing until the very end.' Newtown Review of Books
