From the #1 New York Times bestselling author known for her “superb pacing, twisted characters, and captivating prose” (BuzzFeed), Lisa Jewell returns with a scintillating new psychological thriller about a woman who finds herself the subject of her own popular true crime podcast.

Celebrating her forty-fifth birthday at her local pub, popular podcaster Alix Summer crosses paths with an unassuming woman called Josie Fair. Josie, it turns out, is also celebrating her forty-fifth birthday. They are, in fact, birthday twins.

A few days later, Alix and Josie bump into each other again, this time outside Alix’s children’s school. Josie has been listening to Alix’s podcasts and thinks she might be an interesting subject for her series. She is, she tells Alix, on the cusp of great changes in her life.

Josie’s life appears to be strange and complicated, and although Alix finds her unsettling, she can’t quite resist the temptation to keep making the podcast. Slowly she starts to realize that Josie has been hiding some very dark secrets, and before she knows it, Josie has inveigled her way into Alix’s life—and into her home.

But, as quickly as she arrived, Josie disappears. Only then does Alix discover that Josie has left a terrible and terrifying legacy in her wake, and that Alix has become the subject of her own true crime podcast, with her life and her family’s lives under mortal threat.

Who is Josie Fair? And what has she done?

  • Wow… just wow.

    I read this book in 3 days. I usually don’t read thrillers but I couldn’t put this down. The story is horrifying and unsettling, but so well-written that you can’t help but to continue down the crazy, demented rabbit whole that is this book. Highly recommend!

    Interesting story, but didn’t reach my emotions or carry me to new insights or perspectives.
  • Depressing

  • DNF

    I’ve never had a more difficult time trying to read a book I’m my life. It was so boring to the point I actively looked up a spoiler to see if it was worth continuing and for me, absolutely not. Giant waste of time. Zero stars if I could.

    Page turner. Thriller. Read in 24 hours for first ever book club. We had a month to read it. First book I have completed in 7 years. Reinvigorated my love of reading
