Five years ago, Rosa walked to the pier in the dead of night, looked into the swirling water, and jumped. She was a brilliant Cambridge student who had just lost her father. Her death was tragic, but not unexpected.
Was that what really happened?
The coroner says it was suicide. But Rosa's boyfriend Jar can't let go. He sees Rosa everywhere – a face on the train, a figure on the cliff. He is obsessed with proving that she is still alive. And then he gets an email.
Find me, Jar. Find me, before they do...
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
In this standalone psychological thriller, we meet Jar, five years after the (supposed) suicide of his girlfriend, Rose. “Supposed” because Jar never truly believed she was dead: not only is he convinced he’s seen her in public, but now he’s also received an email from her. In an exhilarating quest to uncover the truth, Jar is lured into ever darker and more dangerous territory. Make sure you can dedicate a whole afternoon to this engrossing read, because J. S. Monroe—famous for his spy novels—rapidly builds the tension and his compelling writing will keep you on the edge of your seat until you have turned the final page.

Different and well written
I found the book took a little bit of getting into, however once I had got used to the different narrators and use of diary entries as a way of writing, I found it intriguing and well written. The plot is unlike anything I’ve read, and the story unfolds naturally without feeling rushed. Although it’s difficult to say you ‘enjoy’a thriller with a story such as this, I found it a refreshing change from many thrillers around at the minute, and was glad I persevered initially.
Loved it couldn’t put it down
Took a little getting used to the diary style of writing but once I had, I couldn’t put it down. One of the best books I’ve read, really find yourself rooting for the characters and desperate to get to the end to find out what happens. 10/10.
