Serial meets Ruth Ware's In a Dark, Dark Wood in this inventive and twisty psychological thriller about a megahit podcast that reopens a murder case - and threatens to unravel the carefully constructed life of the victim's daughter.
Josie Buhrman has spent the last 10 years trying to escape her family's reputation, and with good reason. After her father's murder 13 years prior, her mother ran away to join a cult, and her twin sister, Lanie, once Josie's closest friend and confidante, betrayed her in an unimaginable way. Now Josie has finally put down roots in New York, settling into domestic life with her partner, Caleb, and that's where she intends to stay.
The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past - starting with her last name.
When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell sets off a media firestorm with a megahit podcast that reopens the long-closed case of Josie's father's murder, Josie's world begins to unravel. Meanwhile, the unexpected death of Josie's long-absent mother forces her to return to her Midwestern hometown, where she must confront the demons from her past - and the lies on which she has staked her future.

This isn't even a guilty pleasure. Poor writing, a predictable plot and god awful narration made for a very long listen. I felt compelled to find out who had done it, and of course it was exactly as I had guessed less than 1/4 of the way through the book. Wooden, one-dimensional characters that I couldn't muster enough energy to care about led to a very underwhelming ending. There are too many other good books in this genre.
