About the Book

From the author of The Undoing

'Remarkable.' Stephen King
'Breathtakingly suspenseful.' Megan Abbott
'Smart, surprising and stealthily unsettling.' The Times

When a young writer dies before completing his first novel, his teacher, Jake, (himself a failed novelist) helps himself to its plot. The resulting book is a phenomenal success. But what if somebody out there knows?

Somebody does. And if Jake can’t figure out who he’s dealing with, he risks something far worse than the loss of his career.


What readers are saying

'It builds to a legitimately great ending that I may never forget. Highly recommended.'

'This book is thrilling, exciting and totally nerve-racking! It definitely had me on the edge of my seat and reading well past my bedtime.'

'Addictive . . . I read it quickly without coming up much for air.'

'Wow! This book blew me away- I read it so fast and the ending is so good! No spoilers- just read it.'

'I was pleasantly surprised to find that the best plot ever really is THAT good.'
