True crime story / Joseph Knox.

Knox, Joseph, (author.).

Summary

Summary:

"A strikingly original novel in the vein of DAISY JONES AND THE SIX meets Riley Sager, TRUE CRIME STORY twists together transcripts, emails, and documents into an investigation of a missing college girl, also weaving in the mysteries of how the narrator "Joseph Knox" came to be in possession of these files and what fate befell the original author, as well as why Knox might not be telling us everything he knows. Zoe Nolan disappeared from Manchester University in 2011. Her story was sad, certainly, but hardly sensational, Joseph Knox thought. As a crime writer, he felt that dead girls were everywhere, and the missing ones just didn't cut it. He wouldn't have given her any more thought were it not for Evelyn Mitchell. Another writer struggling to come up with a new idea, Evelyn attended one of Joseph's publicity events, and she was wondering just what happened to all the girls who go missing. What were the stories there? What happened to Zoe? So Evelyn began investigating herself, and sending Joseph emails with chapters of the novel she was writing with her findings. Uneasy with the novel's corkscrew twists and turns, Joseph pays closer attention to the real story... TRUE CRIME STORY is an ambitious, sharp exploration of our obsession with all things true crime, from a former crime bookseller"-- Provided by publisher.
