This is the first novel I have read by Sarah Alderson but I will be seeking out more, as it was a brilliantly constructed story.
It is told from the viewpoints of Lizzie and Becca who had previously worked together in a PR company. Lizzie has worked hard on her appearance and is delighted when Becca’s former boyfriend, James, agrees to go on a date with her. Lizzie then spends her whole night on the Internet tracking down all the information she can on Becca, who has disappeared off the radar, and James.
In the early hours of the morning, after a few glasses of wine, she fires off a message to her best friend, Flora, about what she has found out about Becca. This is where things begin to go wrong and we have all done what she inadvertently managed to do.
Nothing is as it seems and the plot twists and turns in several directions with some not very nice characters. I couldn’t put it down.
Thanks to NetGalley, Hodder & Stoughton, Mulholland Books, and Sarah Alderson for my ARC in return from my honest review.
Excellent novel. Highly recommended.
