Welcome to Stanhope – a place for families.
William Wooler is a family man, on the surface. But he’s been having an affair – an affair that ended horribly this afternoon at a motel up the road. So when he returns to his house, devastated and angry to find his difficult nine-year-old daughter Avery unexpectedly home from school, William loses his temper.
Hours later, Avery’s family declares her missing.
Suddenly Stanhope doesn’t feel so safe. And William isn’t the only one on his street who’s hiding a lie. As witnesses come forward with information that may or not be true, Avery’s neighbours become increasingly unhinged.
Who took Avery Wooler? Nothing will prepare you for the truth.
