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?

    Some said they couldn’t put it down. I found it extremely boring and finally quit trying about chapter 7.

    Couldn’t put it down
  • Wow…

    By Melblevs
    This was my first thriller ever and first by her. So so good. Couldn’t put it down. I have ADHD and my last book took me a month to read. I read this in 24 hours. Psych thriller but not creepy or gory.
  • Good read

    It as an amazing story. Very suspenseful and I didn’t know who to believe. After finishing it, I still am unsure. Who is lying less ?

    Well, I cannot brag about it enough…..the thriller aspect about it is unbelievable…. The twists and turns around every corner on every page all the way up to the very very end is fantastic.! I would have to give it a MUST read for sure. 👍
  • Too creepy for me

    By MWpatient
    The only reason I made myself finish it was that it was our book club’s selection. Josie’s character made my skin crawl and I wanted to put the book down and as far away from me as possible. If you like dark, you may like this book. It’s just not for me.
  • Ok
