Publisher Description

In this twisty psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Before, an actress plays both sides of a murder investigation.
 
“[A] rich, nuanced, highly literary take on the Gone Girl theme.”—Booklist (starred review)

 
Claire Wright is desperate. A British drama student in New York without a green card, she takes the only job she can get: working for a firm of divorce lawyers, posing as an easy pickup in hotel bars to entrap straying husbands. But then the game changes. 
 
When one of her targets becomes the suspect in a murder investigation, the police ask Claire to use her acting chops to lure him into a confession. From the start, she questions the part she’s being asked to play: Is Patrick Fogler a killer? Or is there more to this setup than she’s being told?
 
Claire will soon realize she is playing the deadliest role of her life.

A book only an actress could love

I think only an actress could really like this book. I found this to be quite boring and predictable. I feel like The author was trying to be dark and shocking, but I think it all just fell flat.. and in the end it was just as I expected. All the acting details just seemed self indulgent and were such a snooze I had to skim over them.

Don’t buy this book if you loved the girl before

I only bought this book because I loved jp delaneys the girl before. So much so that I just knew I would love any additional work. This book was called a psychological thriller but it is not. I was so bored and annoyed with all the baudelaire talk. There was no psych, no thrill, no twist, nothing. This book just never got good. Maybe the girl before was an anomaly in genre and plot/writing. I will definitely be more hesitant when buying any more of jp delaneys work. I was very disappointed with this title.
