A little girl went missing years ago. That child is you.

A dark and gripping debut psychological thriller that won the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award, previously won by THE DRY and THE ROSIE PROJECT.

‘Nervy, soulful, genuinely surprising’ A. J. Finn, bestselling author THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW

‘I lost sleep over this book’ *****


A child was stolen twenty years ago
Little Sammy Went vanishes from her home in Manson, Kentucky – an event that devastates her family and tears apart the town’s deeply religious community.

And somehow that missing girl is you
Kim Leamy, an Australian photographer, is approached by a stranger who turns her world upside down – he claims she is the kidnapped Sammy and that everything she knows about herself is based on a lie.

How far will you go to uncover the truth?
In search of answers, Kim returns to the remote town of Sammy’s childhood to face up to the ghosts of her early life. But the deeper she digs into her family background the more secrets she uncovers… and the closer she gets to confronting the trauma of her dark and twisted past.


‘A nervy, soulful, genuinely surprising it-could-happen-to-you thriller ― a book to make you peer over your shoulder for days afterwards’ A. J. Finn, bestselling author of THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW

‘The Nowhere Child is the personification of a high-concept thriller, brilliantly executed. Author White raises the bar on psychological suspense, telling Kim Leamy’s tale in a stylish voice and with a heart-pounding pace. Read page one, and you won’t stop. Guaranteed’ Jeffery Deaver

‘Stunning … tightly woven … comes highly recommended’ Library Journal

‘Great premise, varied characters, dark twists and a smattering of humour. This will be a big hit’ Rachel Sargeant

‘Packed with tension, twists and tremendous pace, it’s hard to believe that this is the work of a debut author. The Nowhere Child is stunning and flawless. I can’t recommend it enough’ Thomas Enger

‘Beautifully written, perfectly suspenseful and wonderfully dark. I could not put this book down’ Susi Holliday

‘Such a clever idea, which grips from the very first chapter’ Ragnar Jonasson

‘The Nowhere Child is pure dynamite. The high concept premise grabbed me from the first page and refused to let me go until I finished. You may try to read it slowly, so you can savor every single word, but the story is so all-encompassing―the need to know what happens next so urgent―you’ll forget all about savoring and find yourself tearing through the pages as fast as your fingers can manage. You do not want to miss this book!’ Linda Castillo, New York Times bestselling author

‘The Nowhere Child is a fabulous read, populated by such well-drawn and identifiable characters that I felt I knew them. I was desperate to know how the story unfolded. Brilliant!’ Louise Voss

‘The Nowhere Child lures you in, its teeth disguised in remarkably compelling prose, and gnaws down to the marrow of your bones’ Matt Wesolowski
