Deborah Jenkins pulls her coat around her for the short walk home in the pouring rain. But she never makes it home that night. And she is never seen again…

Four years later, an abandoned baby girl is found wrapped in dirty rags on a doorstep. An anonymous phone call urges the police to run a DNA test on the baby. But nobody is prepared for the results. 

The newborn belongs to Deborah. She’s still alive...

THE GRIPPING THRILLER EVERYONE’S TALKING ABOUT – if you like Lisa Gardner, Robert Bryndza or Clare Mackintosh, you will absolutely love this. A completely unputdownable page-turner with an ending that will blow your mind.

**Each Gina Harte book can be read as part of the series or as a standalone**

Customer Reviews

Where was the suspense?

Based on the cover, I was anticipating a big plot twist. Nothing really happens and then it ends really quickly.

Let down.

Good book but not the thriller I was expecting

I thought the book was overall a good ready. I liked the characters which is what kept me going through the story. I wanted to find out what would happen with them. I liked how the author linked Ginas story with the case she was working and showed how more often than not you’ll come across a case that directly effects you and brings out personal issues. I wasn’t bored and I hoped that the characters would make it through. It definitely isn’t the heart stopping thriller that I was expecting and that many reviews claimed it would be which is why I gave it 3 stars. The ending wasn’t overly dramatic. There was no crazy twist. Not to say it was expected but it wasn’t a mind blowing outcome. Also I’d hoped to see find out more about DI Harte. I’m not sure if the author left off the way they did because it’s to come in another book but I can’t see myself buying another book just to find out.

Her Final Hour

I loved this book!! Gulped it down in two days and looking forward to Carla’s next.
