Losing You

Серия: "-"

Nina Landry has given up city life for the isolated community of Sandling Island, lying off the bleak east coast of England. At night the wind howls. Sometimes they are cut off by the incoming tide. For Nina though it is home. It is safe. But when Nina's teenage daughter Charlie fails to return from a sleepover on the day they're due to go on holiday, the island becomes a different place altogether - a place of secrets and suspicions where no one - friends, neighbours or the police - believes Nina's instinctive fear that her daughter is in terrible danger. Alone, she undergoes a frantic search for Charlie. And as day turns to night, she begins to doubt not just whether they'll leave the island for their holiday - but whether they will ever leave it again.

Nicci French

Nicci French is the pseudonym of English husband-and-wife team Nicci Gerrard and Sean French, who write psychological thrillers together.


Personal life

Nicci and Sean were married in 1990 and since 1999 have lived in Suffolk in East Anglia, England. Nicci has two children, Edgar and Anna, from her first marriage, and the couple have two daughters of their own, Hadley and Molly.

Nicci Gerrard

Nicci Gerrard was born on 10 June, 1958. She grew up in Worcestershire, together with her two sisters and her brother.

She was educated at The Alice Ottley School in Worcester. She then studied English literature at Oxford University and went on to teach literature in Los Angeles and London. She founded a women's magazine before becoming a freelance journalist. During that time she married and had two children.

Following the failure of this first marriage, she met Sean French whilst working as editor for the New Statesman where French wrote a weekly column, but left when she was offered another job at The Observer.

Sean French

Sean French was born on 28 May , 1959 in Bristol. He was, like his two younger brothers Patrick and Karl, educated at William Ellis secondary school in north London before studying English literature at Oxford University. Sean and Nicci never met while there. While at Oxford University, French won a young writers contest organised by Vogue, and subsequently became a journalist.

In 1987 he got his first column and until the end of 2000 he wrote columns for the New Statesman. His sole-authored novel Start from Here was published in 2004.


The writers use self-imposed constraints: the main character is always a strong and vulnerable woman, independent and stubborn. They don't use real facts, only personal anecdotes, encounters or journeys. They write in alternation, and then rewrite each other's texts.
