Waterstones Says

The acclaimed author of Sirens deftly blends fact and fiction in a standalone chiller centred on the investigation into a student’s sudden disappearance in Manchester.

What happens to those girls who go missing? What happens to the Zoe Nolans of the world?

In the early hours of Saturday 17 December 2011, Zoe Nolan, a nineteen-year-old Manchester University student, walked out of a party taking place in the shared accommodation where she had been living for three months.

She was never seen again.

Seven years after her disappearance, struggling writer Evelyn Mitchell finds herself drawn into the mystery.

Through interviews with Zoe's closest friends and family, she begins piecing together what really happened in 2011.

But where some versions of events overlap, aligning perfectly with one another, others stand in stark contrast, giving rise to troubling inconsistencies.

Shaken by revelations of Zoe's secret life, and stalked by a figure from the shadows, Evelyn turns to crime writer Joseph Knox to help make sense of a case where everyone has something to hide.

Zoe Nolan may be missing presumed dead, but her story is only just beginning.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The real Mr Knox is a fantastic writer. His ambitious fourth novel satirises and celebrates the true-crime genre with glee. True Crime Story, by turns horrific and hilarious, is scandalously entertaining.' - The Times

'Reads like a cinematic true crime documentary. Brilliant, compelling and original.' - Steve Cavanagh

'Totally gripping, original and white hot suspenseful, True Crime Story is a crusher.' - Robert Crais

'The most exciting and original crime book you'll read this year' - Anna Mazzola

'A work of outstanding and staggering genius' - Imran Mahmood

'Pure genius' - Jane Casey

'Highly original and mischievous' - John Boyne

'Ingeniously executed' - Sarah Hilary

'An absolute triumph. It sucked me in, chewed me up, spat me out and left me blinking like the moment the lights go on at a fuzzy basement nightclub. Phenomenal, current, bleakly devastating. An iron gauntlet in the guts. Loved it.' - Matt Wesolowski
