Opinion

From Library Staff

TV host Gaby Mortimer seems to have it all but then out jogging one morning, she finds the body of a young woman. Things just get odder and odder as the connections between the dead woman and Gaby are revealed. It's quite the twisty novel.

Fantastic twisty thriller. Could not put it down & can't wait to see what she writes next. A rare book where the ending was not obvious from the beginning. Like Gone Girl, but even better
