Lee Ingleby reads Jon McGregor's multi award-winning novel.

A teenage girl has gone missing on a midwinter walk in the Peak District. Now a year on, with few clues as to what happened to Becky, the community is struggling to move on.

But while the search for her goes on, so must everyday life in the village. Cows must be milked, fences repaired, stone cut, pints poured, beds made, sermons written. And as the seasons unfold, there are more and more glimpses into what might have happened to Becky Shaw, not least from the local teenagers who, it seems, know more than they're letting on.

Reservoir 13 is one of the most acclaimed novels of the 2017. It won the Costa Novel Award, was shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize, and was longlisted for the Man Booker.
