Description

NOW A MAJOR BBC DRAMA A SUNDAY TIMES TOP FIVE BESTSELLER How do you solve a mystery when you can't remember the clues? Maud is forgetful. She makes a cup of tea and doesn't remember to drink it. She goes to the shops and forgets why she went. Sometimes her home is unrecognizable - or her daughter Helen seems a total stranger. But there's one thing Maud is sure of: her friend Elizabeth is missing. The note in her pocket tells her so. And no matter who tells her to stop going on about it, to leave it alone, to shut up, Maud will get to the bottom of it. Because somewhere in Maud's damaged mind lies the answer to an unsolved seventy-year-old mystery. One everyone has forgotten about. Everyone, except Maud . . . Winner of the Costa First Novel Award Shortlisted for National Book Awards Popular Fiction Book Shortlisted for National Book Awards New Writer of the Year Longlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize Longlisted for the Baileys Prize for Women's Fiction 'A thrillingly assured, haunting and unsettling novel.’ Deborah Moggach, author of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 'Elizabeth Is Missing will stir and shake you: the most likeably unreliable of narrators, real mystery at its compassionate core...' Emma Donoghue, author of Room 'Resembling a version of Memento written by Alan Bennett' Daily Telegraph 'Every bit as compelling as the frenzied hype suggests. Gripping, haunting' Observer

Professional reviews

"A fast-paced mystery and a moving meditation on memory and identity, all told through Maud’s unforgettable voice ‘The novel is both a gripping detective yarn and a haunting depiction of mental illness, but also more poignant and blackly comic than you might expect from that description... perhaps Healey's greatest achievement is the flawless voice she creates for Maud.’ OBSERVER"
