Playdate, Hardback Book

Playdate Hardback


It was meant to be your daughter's first sleepover.

Now it's an abduction. Lucia Blix went home from school for a playdate with her new friend Josie.

Later that evening, Lucia's mother Elisa dropped her overnight things round and kissed her little girl goodnight.

That was the last time she saw her daughter. The next morning, when Lucia's dad arrived to pick her up, the house was empty.

No furniture, no family, no Lucia. In Playdate, Alex Dahl puts a microscope on a seemingly average, seemingly happy family plunged into a life-altering situation.

Who has taken their daughter, and why? Reviews for Alex Dahl: 'Unsettling, layered, bold, unpredictable, dark' Will Dean on The Boy at the Door. 'Intriguing and believable ... At once a compelling thriller and a beautiful meditation on grief' Jane Shemilt on The Heart Keeper. 'Dahl's sharp characterisations make her story feel fresh' Sunday Express on The Boy at the Door.
