Description

Serial meets Ruth Ware's In A Dark, Dark Wood in this inventive and twisty psychological thriller-formerly titled Are You Sleeping-about a mega-hit podcast that reopens a murder case and threatens to unravel the carefully constructed life of the victim's daughter.

The only thing more dangerous than a lie…is the truth.

Josie Buhrman has spent the last ten years trying to escape her family and with good reason. After her father's murder thirteen years prior, her mother ran away to join a cult and her twin sister Lanie, once Josie's closest friend and confidant, betrayed her in an unimaginable way. Now, Josie has finally put down roots in New York, settling into domestic life with her partner Caleb, and that's where she intends to stay.

The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past-starting with her last name.

When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell sets off a media firestorm with a megahit podcast that reopens the long-closed case of Josie's father's murder, questioning whether the wrong person may be behind bars, Josie's world begins to unravel. Meanwhile, the unexpected death of Josie's long-absent mother forces her to return to her Midwestern hometown where she must confront the demons from her past-and the lies on which she has staked her future.

Reader reviews

  • (3/5)
    Was decent but a bit too predictable for me. But still worth a read.
  • (2/5)
    It sounds like the author has literally never spoken to another human being before.
  • (5/5)
    It was interesting and it kept me reading until the end.
  • (5/5)
    Loved the twist and turns in this book!! Highly recommend
  • (2/5)
    It was okay, but, I have guessed the ending just a few pages in. The twists were very predictable and Josie, the main character was very annoying. Nonetheless, I still continued reading because it flowed smoothly and felt like watching a movie that I accidentally stumbled upon while boringly switching through the channels on TV.
  • (2/5)
    I just felt that there was just too much repeating of conversation to hold my interest
