A northern seaside town, not the liveliest of places until a man disappears on the same day as a local teenager. Immediately people start assuming the worst and a witch hunt begins. Rebecca who has to bear the brunt of the ill will is shocked that her husband Chris could just walk out and leave her. She doesn't handle the situation well, takes herself off to a ramshackle caravan and drinks far too much. It was hard to feel much sympathy for her or the way she behaved. The sort of person that you would say "get a grip" to. It took me a long time to get into this book as it was a very slow burner and only really sprang to life after the half way mark. It was an interesting idea with great descriptions of living in a caravan out of season - the lack of facilities, the cold, being almost the only resident. A credible first book!
