A new true-crime fueled mystery thriller about a girl determined to uncover the shocking truth about her missing mother while filming a documentary on the unsolved case.

Lights. Camera. Lies.

18-year-old Bel has lived her whole life in the shadow of her mom’s mysterious disappearance. Sixteen years ago, Rachel Price vanished and young Bel was the only witness, but she has no memory of it. Rachel is gone, long presumed dead, and Bel wishes everyone would just move on.

But the case is dragged up from the past when the Price family agree to a true crime documentary. Bel can’t wait for filming to end, for life to go back to normal. And then the impossible happens. Rachel Price reappears, and life will never be normal again.

Rachel has an unbelievable story about what happened to her. Unbelievable, because Bel isn’t sure it’s real. If Rachel is lying, then where has she been all this time? And – could she be dangerous? With the cameras still rolling, Bel must uncover the truth about her mother, and find out why Rachel Price really came back from the dead . . .

From world-renowned author Holly Jackson comes a mind-blowing masterpiece about one girl’s search for the truth, and the terror in finding out who your family really is.

Mini Audiobook Review

5 stars

Wow I think this is the best Holly Jackson so far!

What a roller coaster and twists within twists! Everyone has secrets.

Rachel Price has disappeared sixteen years ago, leaving behind her tow years old daughter Anabel.

When a crew contact Anabel or Bel’s father to make a documentary, the whole family will relive what happened on the day of the disappearance and in the months after.

Bel seems to have found a new normal.

She is a tough cookie as she has been left behind by her mom, not knowing if she had been abducted or if she chose to leave her. But that’s decided her to be prickly, not get attached and push everyone away because they will leave her sooner or later.

So best not getting attached right?

Unexpectedly, Rachel reappears and throws everyone off balance.

Instead of being relieved, Bel’s dad is unsettled, Bel is distrusting because she thinks that her mother’s story, being abducted by a stranger and kept in his cave for sixteen years is hardly believable.

Rachel leaves holes in her story, is erratic and Bel is determined to find the truth.

The truth will be shocking and I never expected all this! I absolutely LOVED it and I think Holly Jackson is a mastermind!

Also if you love audiobooks, Sophie Amoss does an excellent job narrating that mind-blowing story!

Thanks for reading.

  1. I loved Jackson’s debut, but then the books got too dark for my liking. I still think Jackson is an amazing mystery author, and I am so glad to hear you loved her latest release.
