Description of this Book

'Literary suspense as dark and fresh as midnight in winter, with a merciless twist-of-the-knife finale. One of the most striking debuts I've read in years and years.' - AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window DON'T TRUST HIM. IT WASN'T ME. IT COULDN'T HAVE BEEN ME. Meet Evie, a young woman held captive by a man named Jim in the isolated New Zealand beach town of Maketu. Jim says he's hiding Evie to protect her, that she did something terrible back home in Melbourne. In a house that creaks against the wind, Evie begins to piece together her fractured memories of the events that led her here. Jim says he's keeping her safe. Evie's not sure she can trust Jim, but can she trust her own memories? An incredible literary thriller for readers of bestsellers such as Gone Girl, Before I Go to Sleep and Girl on the Train from an exciting debut New Zealand voice.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review It's a tight, compulsive, beautifully written thriller with echoes of Gillian Flynn, with characters that keep you guessing and a plot that keeps you turning the page. - Christian White, author of The Nowhere Child I felt pure dread reading this book. Enjoyable, exquisite dread. A great read. There are so many layers and twists to this story and they are revealed in the most frustrating, masterful way. - Sarah Bailey, author of The Dark Lake Call Me Evie is razor sharp, claustrophobic and unputdownable. No character is above suspicion in this dry-mouthed, wide-eyed rollercoaster chase to the final page. This is the finest of literary thrillers from a remarkable new talent. - Susi Fox, bestselling author of Mine A superbly claustrophobic mind-f**k - I absolutely had to know who 'Evie' was and what had happened! - Angela Meyer, author of A Superior Spectre Literary suspense as dark and fresh as midnight in winter, with a merciless twist-of-the-knife finale. One of the most striking debuts I've read in years and years. - AJ Finn, author of The Woman in the Window
