The author of The Last House on Needless Street, Catriona Ward, delivers a masterful story about friendship and betrayal, dark obsessions, and the impossibility of escaping your own story. "Here's your next obsession."
(Kelly Link, author of Get In Trouble)

In a cottage overlooking the windswept Maine coast, Wilder Harlow has begun the last book he will ever write.

It is the story about the sun-drenched summer days of his youth in Whistler Bay, and the blood-stained path of the killer that stalked his small vacation town. About the terrible secret he and his companions, Nat and Harper, discovered entombed in the coves off the bay. And how the pact they swore that day echoed down the decades, forever shaping their lives.

But the more Wilder writes, the less he trusts himself and his memory. He starts to see things that can’t be real – notes hidden in the cabin, from an old friend now dead; a woman with dark hair drowning in the icy waters below, calling for help; entire chapters he doesn’t recall typing, appearing overnight. Who, or what, is haunting Wilder?

No longer able to trust his own eyes, Wilder begins to fear that this will not only be his last book, but the last thing he ever does.

An origami puzzle of a book, the mystery so beautifully crafted you don’t see the folds, with edges sharp as a paper cut.”—Lauren Beukes, author of The Shining Girls

Not for me

Oof. Where to begin with this one? I’ll echo a lot of the other reviews here and say that I started off somewhat bored, got really into the middle, and then completely hated the end. It’s hard to review this book due to the plot, but suffice there’s a love story here that I really liked and that sort of becomes… nothing due to the bizarre semi-supernatural twist? I don’t know. This one definitely did not work for me in most aspects. If you’re into sci-fi or meta-fiction this might be for you, but honestly I’m too confused about the plot and characters here to even review it coherently.
