Here's what you say about us...

Lexie Elliott grew up in Scotland, at the foot of the Highlands. She graduated from Oxford University where she obtained a doctorate in theoretical physics. A keen sportswoman, she works in fund management in London, where she lives with her husband and two sons. The rest of her time is spent writing, or thinking about writing, and juggling family life and sport.

Like The French Girl, this manages to be both uncannily creepy and grounded in the true horror of human evil.
The Observer

Elliott follows her well-reviewed debut, The French Girl, with an equally atmospheric novel that keeps the reader intrigued and off-balance all the way through.

This compelling mystery left me on the edge of my seat... If you liked the author's debut work The French Girl, you will love The Missing Years.
Tulsa Book Review

With its growing atmosphere of dread and its moody environs, The Missing Years begins with a Gothic hint that rapidly segues into a suspenseful thriller with a breathless twist of a dnouement.
New York Journal of Books
