About Wake

Mina McCreery has grown up in the shadow of her twin sister Evelyn’s disappearance twenty years ago. The impossible case of a girl who vanished from her bed on a remote property in New South Wales has long obsessed the press, amateur sleuths and conspiracy theorists. A popular theory is that Mina herself killed Evelyn. When private investigator Lane Holland reopens the case, the answer seems closer than ever before. But Lane has a dangerous agenda of his own.
