When the town pariah Lizzie Oullette is found dead, with her husband missing, Detective Ian Bird discovers a link to a social media influencer and wife of a disgraced billionaire who had a relationship with Lizzie that cut across class boundaries-and ultimately became deadly.
The mystery increases as the pages turn in this almost-true-crime story, with fictional characters fleshed out enough to evoke sympathy, loathing and recognition in people we may know — or know of — in the real world. The connection between imagining and knowing is thematic with both the book and its inspiration, both set in Maine ... The novel is as thrilling as it is curious. Easily definable characters and roles dodge in and out of focus, keeping both readers and Detective Bird guessing to the last page.
In a book where every character is fully fleshed out readers can expect to be completely captivated by the story. This book does not disappoint ... The story is told from the point of view of several characters, which always makes for a deeper, more compelling read. Lizzie's first-person point of view is utterly engaging, and even readers who can't get past the idea of narrative from a dead person will enjoy this amazing book. It seems to be a thing now for reviewers to compare every psychological suspense that comes along to Gone Girl, but the comparison here is nonexistent. No One Will Miss Her stands on its own gilded feet. Gripping and sharp as a tack.
A story that will completely throw you for a loop just when you think you know what’s going on, No One Will Miss Her is an expertly written book with characters you’ll find so interesting and a plot that is equally intriguing ... I was so blown away by the way author Kat Rosenfield was able to twist the story around. This is a thriller you won’t want to miss.
