Summary

Set against a ticking clock, this "haunting" and "atmospheric" thriller pits a ruthless cult against a mother's love, revealing that our darkest secrets are the hardest ones to leave behind (Sally Hepworth, New York Times bestselling author of The Good Sister).

Four days to go

Amy has only ever known life in the Clearing, amidst her brothers and sisters--until a newcomer, a younger girl, joins the "family" and offers a glimpse of the outside world. Three days to go Freya is going to great lengths to seem like an "everyday mum," even as she maintains her isolated lifestyle, hoping to protect her young son and her dog. Two days to go When news breaks of a missing girl--a child the same age as Freya's son, Billy--Amy and Freya find themselves headed for a shocking collision. One day to go

Reviews

"Pomare captivates in this haunting novel, In The Clearing. I was utterly gripped with the stories of Amy and Freya from start to finish, and fascinated by the unexpected way the two came together.Thrilling, atmospheric and with twists abounding, this book held me in its spell long after the final page. A sure-fire bestseller."—Sally Hepworth, bestselling author of The Mother-in-Law "Sets its hooks on page one and doesn't let go until the final, chilling line."—Chris Holm, author of The Killing Kind "There's no doubt about it: Pomare is a master of the carefully constructed, impeccably paced psycho-thriller."—Weekend Australian "A dark, chilling, atmospheric thriller populated with mysterious and wonderfully flawed characters."—Christian White, author of The Nowhere Child "A story of motherhood, damage, and a nightmarish cult . . . An outstanding and compulsive read."—Jen Conley, author of Cannibals "Past and present collide in this taut and unpredictable thriller ... Twist follows twist and nothing is as it seems."—Chris Hammer, author of Scrublands "A pared-back firecracker where the danger is clear and present--even if its exact shape remains opaque until the book's climax and final gasp-inducing twist."
Books & Publishing (Australia) “Spine-tingling . . . Pomare is able to pull off red herrings galore and crafty, satisfying twists. A heart-pounding novel made heart-rending by its reflection of real-life events.”—Kirkus Reviews “Bombshell-laden  . . . Pomare is a writer to watch.”—Publishers Weekly "A riveting read that kept me locked in from page one. Textured, complex, and equally fast-paced and memorable, JP Pomare weaves together cults, the plight of motherhood, and family strife to create a book that will linger with you long after you've read it. The past is ever-present here, in ways both relatable and surprising. Don't miss this one."—Alex Segura, authorof Blackout and Miami Midnight Expand reviews
