Publisher's Summary

Celebrated, best-selling, elusive...who is Maud Dixon?

Florence Darrow wants to be a writer. Correction: Florence Darrow IS going to be a writer. Fired from her first job in publishing, she jumps at the chance to be assistant to the celebrated Maud Dixon, the anonymous best-selling novelist. 

The arrangement comes with conditions - high secrecy, living in an isolated house in the countryside­. Before long, the two of them are on a research trip to Morocco, to inspire the much-promised second novel. Beach walks, red sunsets and long, whisky-filled evening discussions...win-win, surely? Until Florence wakes up in a hospital, having narrowly survived a car crash. 

How did it happen - and where is Maud Dixon, who was in the car with her? Florence feels she may have been played, but wait, if Maud is no longer around, maybe Florence can make her mark as a writer after all.

Critic Reviews

"Clever, cunning, and diabolical in the best possible way. Anyone longing for a good old-fashioned thrill need look no further." (Ann Patchett)

Wow!

Loved it. I wasn’t thrilled with the beginning but it picked up the pace and became a real page turner! The narrator was very talented.

struggle

nearly gave up on this but gave 3 stars as end was bit better. Took too long to lay the groundwork and the main character is so unlikable I found it hard to stay focused. Narration was excellent

Dark

Dark and continuously twisting sometimes in ways you anticipate and sometimes in ways you don’t - I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

Wanted to give up after the first few chapters but stuck with the story and ended up enjoying it in spite of my scepticism

The narrator is overly dramatic and it grates on you initially but I learnt to live with her performance once the story took hold. Good plot and characters but in my opinion, no more than an airport read - or now that we’re not travelling as much as we would like , a beach or a couch read.

This surprised me

To be honest, this bored me for the majority and I hated Florence. That ending though. Wow. It definitely saved it from being a 2* read.
