Synopsis

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 . . .

'Resembling a version of Memento written by Alan Bennett' Daily Telegraph



'One of those mythical beasts, the book you cannot put down' Jonathan Coe, author of The Rotters Club
