About The Book
When actress Allison Langley leaves her former rockstar husband in the middle of the night, her sudden departure becomes the talk of upmarket Oak Hill. But the relentless gossip comes to an abrupt halt when five-year-old Billy Barnes disappears on his walk home from kindergarten. Is there a predator lurking in the leafy suburb? Weeks later, three-year-old Amy-Pat Davies vanishes from her backyard. In addition to sharing a zip code, the missing children have another thing in common – their babysitter, Cassidy McLean, who has a secret of her own.
Gossip; it can make you or it can destroy you.
In the neighborhood of Oak Hill; gossip is the air; the purpose of living there, their right… But, do any of them really think about the damage they are doing? Or is it more fun gossiping about their neighbours than thinking about the consequences of their acts?
This is the story of a neighborhood; the families that live there and the tragic successes that happen there; but after reading this book you’ll see that there’s no one innocent; everyone has a secret agenda and is ready to do anything in their hands to cover it up. Ready for a nail biting story?This is a story about kidnapping and secrets; when a young boy is kidnapped on his way home, all the neighborhood is ready to talk, point fingers and make their own bets. But, is it fair to treat a horrible event like this as a joke? To simply cover the empty hours? You’ll have to decide by yourself.
This is not a book to love characters and root for their safety, but a critical story about our society and how we think that money can buy anything. But the truth is that it doesn’t matter how much money you have, death is waiting for all of us in a natural way or not.
Are you ready to be part of “The Perfect Neighborhood” or be just a mere spectator? Your choice.
