It always starts with a small lie. That's how you stop noticing the bigger ones.

After his friend suspects something strange going on at the satellite facility where they both work - and then goes missing - Martin Hepton doesn't believe the official line of "long-term sick leave"...

Refusing to stop asking questions, he leaves his old life behind, aware that someone is shadowing his every move. But why?

The only hope he has is his ex-girlfriend Jill Watson - the only journalist who will believe his story.

But neither of them can believe the puzzle they're piecing together - or just how shocking the secret is that everybody wants to stay hidden...

DISCOVER THE CLASSIC LOST THRILLER FROM THE ICONIC NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER.
