A taut, emotive, devastating dark and all-consuming psychological thriller, reminiscent of Play Misty for Me ... from the critically acclaimed author of Maria in the Moon and The Lion Tamer Who Lost... ***WINNER of Best magazine's BIG Book of the Year 2019*** ***LONGLISTED for Guardian's NOT THE BOOKER PRIZE*** 'A complex and layered tale that charmed me as a much as it traumatised me. An atmospheric, haunting and beautifully written page turner!' C L Taylor 'Noirish psychological thriller with fascinating, disturbing characters. Compelling, twisty, and seriously addictive. EXCELLENT' Will Dean 'As twisty and deadly as barbed wire, this book will leave you breathless' Erin Kelly _____________ Stirring up secrets can be deadly ... especially if they're yours... Pregnant Victoria Valbon was brutally murdered in an alley three weeks ago - and her killer hasn't been caught. Tonight is Stella McKeever's final radio show. The theme is secrets. You tell her yours, and she'll share some of hers. Stella might tell you about Tom, a boyfriend who likes to play games, about the mother who abandoned her, now back after fourteen years. She might tell you about the perfume bottle with the star-shaped stopper, or about her father ... What Stella really wants to know is more about the mysterious man calling the station ... who says he knows who killed Victoria, and has proof. Tonight is the night for secrets, and Stella wants to know everything... With echoes of the Play Misty for Me, Call Me Star Girl is a taut, emotive and all-consuming psychological thriller that plays on our deepest fears, providing a stark reminder that stirring up dark secrets from the past can be deadly... _______________ 'It's a slow burn at first until it twists and turns at a head-staggering rate to a devastating climax.
