Publisher Description


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?

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“Well, I devoured this in a day. I literally could not put it down, I thought I had figured out what was going on about 1/4 of the way through and I was partly right but OMG! I was not expecting the full reveal and then the different version of events given in the epilogue just ... Wow! I might come back and put more in this when the club actually starts reading this more, I don't want to give too much away 😬”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“If i am to describe this book in 2 words i would say Gloriously Twisted! The title of this book is so accurate, and you will question what you are reading so many times thoroughly the story. Even when you do read it you won’t believe it. So many swings and twists, you will be dizzy. Every page is a cliff hanger, every question answered brings up another. It’s perfection- don’t hesitate. Read it now. Right now. I finished this in 1 day it was too good and still has my head spinning 😵‍💫”

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“Hard to put down once I started to read it. I had to know what was going to happen. Josie was such as odd character from beginning to end. This books has left me thinking and hoping Lisa Jewell writes another book like this one.”
