Publisher Description

What really happened the night Edie died? Years later, her best friend Lindsay will learn how unprepared she is for the truth in this “impressive debut” (People) from the New York Times bestselling author of the Reese’s Book Club pick We Were Never Here.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BuzzFeed Glamour Real Simple Marie Claire Library Journal Booklist CrimeReads

In 2009, Edie had New York’s social world in her thrall. Mercurial and beguiling, she was the shining star of a group of recent graduates living in a Brooklyn loft and treating New York like their playground. When Edie’s body was found near a suicide note at the end of a long, drunken night, no one could believe it. Grief, shock, and resentment scattered the group and brought the era to an abrupt end.
A decade later, Lindsay has come a long way from the drug-addled world of Calhoun Lofts. She has devoted best friends, a cozy apartment, and a thriving career as a magazine’s head fact-checker. But when a chance reunion leads Lindsay to discover an unsettling video from that hazy night, she starts to wonder if Edie was actually murdered—and, worse, if she herself was involved. As she rifles through those months in 2009—combing through case files, old technology, and her fractured memories—Lindsay is forced to confront the demons of her own violent history to bring the truth to light.

Gals vs. Guys

First, I loved this story. But the book itself...

Andrea Bartz goes a bit overboard, for my taste, giving the deep background for the protagonist’s thoughts and actions. Part of this is a female author vs. male author style: If John Grisham had written this book, it would have been a hundred pages shorter and just as interesting. But if you like female authors, and/or lots and lots of detail, and you enjoy intelligent thrillers, I think you’ll love this book.

If you’re on vacation, it’ll do

Silly, fast read. Flowery prose, lifetime tv style plot, but it did the trick at the pool.

Great read

I love a good mystery novel, also having lived in Brooklyn for eight years I thought this would be a great read.

Little did I realize that it would quite literally transport me back to some of the best years of my life (2009-2016). It didn’t take me long to start noticing some of these events and storylines seemed really familiar to me. The parties, the roommates, the rooftop and most definitely the apartment explosion. Calhoun is actually a real place, called the Mckibbin Lofts where I lived for many amazing years.

Great read!
