They told us he had been missing for nearly two days, that he probably drowned. They told us a lie.
Megan was ten years old when her older brother, Zac, went missing among the cliffs, caves and beaches that surround the small seaside town of Whitecliff.
A decade later and a car crash has claimed the lives of her parents.
Megan and her younger sister Chloe return to Whitecliff one summer for the first time since their brother’s disappearance. Megan says it’s to get her parents’ affairs in order. There are boxes to pack, junk to clear, a rundown cottage to sell. But that’s not the real reason.
Megan has come to confront her family’s past after receiving a postcard on the day of her parents’ funeral. It had a photo of Whitecliff on the front and a single letter on the back.
‘Z’ is all it read.
Z for Zac.

THE DEATH AND LIFE OF ELEANOR PARKER
22 JUNE 2018
Seventeen-year-old Eleanor Parker wakes with a splutter and a cough. It’s the early hours of a Sunday morning and she’s in the river that runs through the centre of her village with no memory of how she got there.
All she has is an overwhelming sense that something bad happened to her. No, something worse than bad. As terrible as it gets.
She remembers a hand on her chest, another on her head, water in her throat, those final gasps for air.
But if she drowned, then why is she still alive?
And if someone killed her, then who?
