LoveReading View on The Perfect Stranger

A lovely psychological thriller where the unreliable narrator leaves you working hard following the facts and trying to figure out what really happened. One begins to wonder if this narrator, Leah, isn’t a bit disillusioned herself and if her housemate, Emmy, who has gone missing, actually exists. We get their past history drip-fed to us adding to the present mystery. A girl looking a lot like Leah has been assaulted. Was this a case of mistaken identity? Leah is hiding something huge in her past, running away to teach in a rural school when once she was a journalist in Boston. Why? But then Emmy’s past seems a total mystery too, if she exists! Great fun, full of twists and turns and many a red herring. I honestly don’t think you’ll guess the denouement until you get there.

The Perfect Stranger Synopsis

Having reached a dead end in Boston, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs a change. When she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who is moving to rural Pennsylvania, Leah decides to join her. But their fresh start is quickly threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.

Determined to find Emmy, Leah helps Detective Kyle Donovan to investigate her friend's life for clues. But with no friends, family or digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Forced to question her version of reality and to save herself, Leah must uncover the truth - no matter how dark or terrible it may be...

This series is one of my favourites and DI Marnie Rome returns here in splendid style ... Sarah Hilary has the ability to take you into the words, to actually feel, to experience, and she sent my thoughts worming and writhing. At one point I found myself so exasperated and frustrated with one of the characters, it came as a shock when I came up for air and realised where I was. The ending buffeted me, surprised me, emotionally affected me, and a certain someone is still creeping around inside my mind. I already know that Come and Find Me will be one of my favourite reads of the year, and I think this is Sarah Hilary’s best yet, I simply can’t recommend this series highly enough." - Liz Robinson, Editorial Expert To have a chance of winning this fantastic prize, click the button below.

The Perfect Stranger Press Reviews

Praise for All The Missing Girls;

A twisty, compulsive read, I loved it.    Ruth Ware, author of In a Dark, Dark Wood

All the Missing Girls is a smart, suspenseful, and emotionally complex thriller... Lock the doors, turn off the phone, and read until the last satisfying page.    Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of The Ex

Both [Gillian] Flynn's and Miranda's main characters also reclaim the right of female characters to be more than victim or femme fatale... All the Missing Girls is set to become one of the best books of 2016.   Los Angeles Review of Books

Are you paying attention? You'll need to be; this thriller will test your brain with its reverse chronological structure, and it's a page-turner to boot.  ELLE  

Intricately plotted...Ms. Miranda brings heightened suspense and a twist to this familiar scenario by telling the story, which unfolds over 15 days, in reverse chronological order.
New York Times  

All the Missing Girls is the archetypal murder mystery, the kind it seems like everyone has been hungry for since Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl and Paula Hawkins's Girl on a Train.
