True Crime Story – Joseph Knox ★★★★★

Blurb; In the early hours of Saturday 17 December 2011, Zoe Nolan, a nineteen-year-old Manchester University student, walked out of a party taking place in the shared accommodation where she had been living for three months.

She was never seen again.

Seven years after her disappearance, struggling writer Evelyn Mitchell finds herself drawn into the mystery. Through interviews with Zoe’s closest friends and family, she begins piecing together what really happened in 2011. But where some versions of events overlap, aligning perfectly with one another, others stand in stark contrast, giving rise to troubling inconsistencies.

Shaken by revelations of Zoe’s secret life, and stalked by a figure from the shadows, Evelyn turns to crime writer Joseph Knox to help make sense of a case where everyone has something to hide.

Zoe Nolan may be missing presumed dead, but her story is only just beginning

My Review; I have seen this book everywhere, so ofcourse I had to check it out myself! I am so glad I did. This is the first book I have read by this author but it won’t be the last. This was amazing. 5 stars and more. It went straight into my top reads of the year. Loved it. Highly recommend. A must buy. A must read. You will not be disappointed.

It’s set at Manchester University and as a local I knew all the places within the book and the University itself making it more real for me as a reader. The author has written this book so cleverly that I had to actually message a friend who had already read it to make sure it wasn’t a true crime. Very clever indeed. Very impressed.

The story is told through each of the characters involved throughout. So it was an easy read for me which I devoured and finished before I knew it. I was hooked. It really was a brilliant, page turner of a read. One I don’t think I could ever forget. One I will recommend for a long time. This author just blew me away. Now I understand the hype… Thank you Joseph.
