Soon to be a major TV series called Truth Be Told from Apple TV+ and produced by Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine!

Serial meets Ruth Ware's In A Dark, Dark Wood in this inventive and twisty psychological thriller about a mega-hit podcast that reopens a murder case and threatens to unravel the carefully constructed life of the victim's daughter.

The only thing more dangerous than a the truth.

Josie Buhrman has spent the last ten years trying to escape her family's reputation and with good reason. After her father's murder thirteen years prior, her mother ran away to join a cult and her twin sister Lanie, once Josie's closest friend and confidant, betrayed her in an unimaginable way. Now, Josie has finally put down roots in New York, settling into domestic life with her partner Caleb, and that's where she intends to stay.

The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past--starting with her last name.

When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell sets off a media firestorm with a mega-hit podcast that reopens the long-closed case of Josie's father's murder, Josie's world begins to unravel. Meanwhile, the unexpected death of Josie's long-absent mother forces her to return to her Midwestern hometown where she must confront the demons from her past--and the lies on which she has staked her future.

Good idea for a story but poorly executed. The characters are one dimensional and many of the details do not make sense. By the time I found out who the killer was I no longer cared.

If you loved "Girl on the Train", you will love this book. I love dark, whodunit mysteries but am not frequently surprised or I can see the real villain from a mile away. Not this one. Barber gives clues along the way but nothing enough to smack you in the face. All the way up to the reveal I was still pulled in 3 different directions. A great summer read!
