Sussex, 2003. When a beautiful blonde girl is found half-drowned on a beach, she has no memory of who she is or what horrors have left her there. But an article about her in a Brighton newspaper rings alarm bells for beautician Dale, who shows the police photographs of her old friend, Lotte Wainright. The girls met working on a cruise ship, and their friendship blossomed as they sailed the seas of South America – until Lotte fell under the sinister influence of an older American couple. To her regret, Dale hasn’t seen Lotte since leaving the ship months earlier … but the girl on the beach – although badly bruised – is indeed her much missed-friend. But their reunion launches a dangerous tidal wave of secrets, lies and nightmares. Where has Lotte been? Who is the man who seems to want to kill her? And what has become of the baby she’s recently given birth to? Dale and Lotte must dig deep and find the strength to hold on against the odds if they are to rebuild their friendship, and survive Lotte’s stolen, deadly past…
