A discovery of bones on a windswept beach, the disappearance of a young woman, and a detective whose secrets are about to come out…

Summoned to a crime scene swarming with people, Detective Billie Ann Wilde is devastated to find a woman’s broken bones abandoned in a suitcase on the sand of a popular Florida beach. And Billie’s blood runs cold when she reads the name “Danni” handwritten on the luggage tag in black ink: the name of Billie’s own best friend.

Rushing over to Danni’s home, Billie is relieved to find her alive, preparing dinner for her two young daughters. So whose bones are in the suitcase? And why was Danni’s name at the scene?

For years, Billie has worried that the dark secrets in her past might put her loved ones in danger, and soon her connection to the case is confirmed. Another set of bones is found at a busy local mall. With shaking hands Billie reaches out to read the luggage tag where another name is written in black ink: but this time, it’s Billie’s own name. And now, Danni has gone missing…

Can Billie face up to the past and unravel her connection to this twisted killer? Or, with two young women already gone, is it too late for Billie to save Danni’s life?

A twisty, heart-stopping new crime thriller in the Billie Ann Wilde series, from international bestseller Willow Rose. Readers of Lisa Regan, Mary Stone and Kendra Elliot won’t be able to stop turning the pages.


When a suitcase containing women's bones is discovered, Detective Billie Ann Wilde is determined to find the person responsible. Shockingly, the suitcase has a label with the name Danni. This is very disturbing to Billie as, not only is Danni a dear friend, Billie's personal secrets about how she really feels about Danni are coming to the surface.

Billie is relieved when she rushes to Danni's house to find her alive and well and in the process of preparing dinner for her twin daughters. Yet, the suitcase did indeed have Dannie's name on it, so Billie is more than concerned.

Meanwhile, Billie's home life is all but in tatters. Her once-happy marriage is dissolving, her children's behavior is a cause for concern for Billie, yet she must focus on her current case. When yet another suitcase is discovered, Billie finds herself in a race against time to find whoever it is that is missing, even at great cost to herself.

Then She's Gone was a fast-paced thrill ride from start to finish. The constant clash when it came to Billie's home life while desperately seeking the identity of the killer was truly thrilling.
