True-crime podcaster Alix Summer is successful and social, but her husband’s battle with ever-worsening alcohol-use disorder is starting to wear on her. When she meets the reserved Josie Fair and the pair find that they share a birthday, Alix seizes the opportunity to delve into someone else’s life and makes Josie the subject of her new podcast. As Josie reveals the disturbing story of her life, Alix begins to believe that her own problems pale in comparison; but the more Josie shares, the further she inserts herself into Alix’s world until Alix wonders if she’s lost control completely. Jewell (The Family Remains) presents twisted, tense psychological suspense. Primary narrators Nicola Walker and Louise Brealey are a dramatic and talented duo. A full cast of 10 additional narrators bring to life the novel’s fictional Netflix specials, police interviews, and podcasts, complete with theme music and ambient noise. These engaging and ominous interludes impart a chilling sense of foreboding.
VERDICT This audio will appeal to listeners seeking an intricate, immersive suspense novel about obsession and betrayal. Recommended for fans of Darcey Bell, Zoe Whittall, and Greer Hendricks.
