How can a woman who never existed come back to haunt you?
‘Spine chilling . . . Misery for the #MeToo generation.’ Erin Kelly
Gerry Anderson has been having trouble sleeping. He’s unwell – bed-bound – and has only his night nurse and his personal assistant for company. But what’s really troubling him are the phone calls. Phone calls from a woman claiming to be the ‘real’ Aubrey.
But that can’t be. Aubrey’s just a character Gerry made up in a book, years ago.
Can Gerry see past the ever-blurring lines of fact and fiction and figure out who is threatening him, or has his long-overdue moment of reckoning finally arrived?
‘The sharpest, clearest-eyed take on our #MeToo reckoning yet. Plus: enthralling.’ Megan Abbott
What readers are saying
‘A twisty and delightfully sharp thriller.’
‘Witty, timely, prescient and skewering the reception of the #MeToo movement.’
‘One of the best books I have read this year . . . that ending was brilliant.’
‘A great summer read.’
Mischievous, sulphurous, antic . . . Dream Girl is the darkly comic thriller of the season.
Smart and many faceted, a devastating implication of one man’s self-deception, and creepy as hell.
There are thriller writers and there is Laura Lippman, an American who is fast creating a new genre-busting category full of remarkable writing and dazzling plot lines . . . You will never guess the ending. It's delicious.
Keeps you guessing until the very last chapter.
An immersive, chilling read from the masterful author of Sunburn and Lady in the Lake, with a #MeToo-inspired reckoning at its core.
Clever, funny and supremely readable.
