Find Me by J. S. Monroe

Five years ago, Rosa walked to the pier in the dead of night, looked into the swirling water, and jumped. She was a brilliant Cambridge student who had just lost her father. Her death was tragic, but not unexpected. Was that what really happened? The coroner says it was suicide. But Rosa's boyfriend Jar can't let go. He sees Rosa everywhere - a face on the train, a figure on the cliff. He is obsessed with proving that she is still alive. And then he gets an email. Find me, Jar. Find me, before they do...


'An entertaining page-turner' Irish Times

'A highly convoluted and skilfully told story with many twists and turns and apparent reversals of narrative' Promoting Crime

'The best book of the year for me so far ... I'd recommend it to anyone who wants some intelligent and slightly different escapism with digestible language and a lack of flowery prose in the descriptions. It's a novel for people who want a bit more and it performs on every level' Nudge Book

'You have to work quite hard at this multi-layered break-out thriller, it features several timelines and narratives, but stick with it and you will be rewarded with intelligent writing, original and disturbing ideas and a tightly coiled and crafted plot Daily Mail

'An intriguing novel, lots of twists and turns and a dark underbelly' Frost Magazine

'Interesting and fresh approach to a psychological thriller because it is also a tender love story ... The twists and turns mean you really are still in the dark almost right to the end' Strange Alliances

'An intricate puzzle of a thriller ... Simultaneously romantic and horrifying' Lucie Whitehouse

'The most ingenious thriller you will read his year. I couldn't put it down' M.J. Arlidge.

'Intricately woven and heart-stoppingly believable, this has bestseller written all over it
Clare Mackintosh
