A taut, emotive 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...

'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. Original, moody and totally gripping' Claire Allan

`Louise Beech blasts into the world of thriller writing with this moody and tense tale. With secrets, lies and plenty of twisty turns, it's story is dark and it's setting eerie and evocative. Definitely one where you might look over your shoulder more than once while reading!' Fionnuala Kearney

`An original story and beautifully written, so atmospheric ... Dark, mesmerising and utterly devastating' SJI Holliday

`Beech has used her unique flair and constructed a crime fiction story that will have you frantically turning the pages until you get to the end' Michael Wood

`It's EXTRAORDINARY - tense, twisted and utterly compelling, written with such raw beauty and unflinching honesty' Miranda Dickinson

`With Call Me Star Girl, Louise proves that she can blow us all away with her writing powers - in whatever genre she chooses' Jack Jordan

`One of 6 of the best Pacy page-turners'Woman & Home magazine

`Part psychological thriller, part literary noir and part tragic family drama, its multiple strands slowly merge to reveal a captivating truth' Heat Magazine

`MUST READ' Daily Express

`An elegant and powerful writer who uses language in all its unique glory. I hope Beech writes more psychological thrillers. The shelves may be full to bursting with them in the book shops, but the way she writes them, Beech's novels will stand out in any crowd' Crime Squad

`Psychologically unsettling and with a sting in the tail, it's another cracker published by Orenda Books ... highly recommended' Russel McLean
