Publisher Description

Rosa committed suicide five years ago. But is she really gone? Because her boyfriend gets a cryptic email - apparently from Rosa. Five years ago, Rosa walked to the pier in the dead of night, looked into the swirling water, and jumped. She was a brilliant young Cambridge student who had just lost her father. Her death was tragic, but not unexpected. Was that what really happened? The coroner says it was suicide. But Rosa's boyfriend Jar can't let go. He sees Rosa everywhere - a face on the train, a figure on the cliff. He is obsessed with proving that she is still alive. And then he gets an email. Find me, Jar. Find me, before they do...

Review

'[A] richly textured, wholly absorbing and multi-layered thriller where nothing is quite what it initially seems ... Find Me is a taut, tense and heart-stopping read that will shock, delight and entertain ... Should not be missed!' Bookish Jottings. 'Has everything that a good suspense thriller should have and the writing is amazing' Rambling Lisa's Book Reviews. 'A thrilling read' Woman Reads Books. 'A gripping, unpredictable read. Monroe has managed to write a very clever, claustrophobic book where you genuinely don't know who, apart from Jar, you can trust' Go Buy the Book. 'Monroe effortlessly switches gear from spy thriller to psychological thriller ... the two stories are intriguing, complex and equally plausible ... Shocking and absorbing' Out and About magazine. 'An entertaining page-turner' Irish Times. 'A highly convoluted and skilfully told story with many twists and turns and apparent reversals of narrative' Promoting Crime. 'The best book of the year for me so far ... I'd recommend it to anyone who wants some intelligent and slightly different escapism with digestible language and a lack of flowery prose in the descriptions. It's a novel for people who want a bit more and it performs on every level' Nudge Book. 'You have to work quite hard at this multi-layered break-out thriller, it features several timelines and narratives, but stick with it and you will be rewarded with intelligent writing, original and disturbing ideas and a tightly coiled and crafted plot' Daily Mail. 'An intriguing novel, lots of twists and turns and a dark underbelly' Frost Magazine. 'Interesting and fresh approach to a psychological thriller because it is also a tender love story ... The twists and turns mean you really are still in the dark almost right to the end' Strange Alliances. 'The pages all but turn themselves as the story unfolds in taut chapters ... Pacing is crisp and the plot is credible, but it's the case of expertly crafted, psychologically ambiguous characters that rivets' Publishers Weekly. 'An interesting premise ... very compelling' Bibliophile Book Club. 'Cunning, captivating and creepy - a beautifully written thriller with well-drawn characters and a twisting, gripping plot that will keep you guessing until the very last page' Jonathan Holt. 'An intricate puzzle of a thriller ... Simultaneously romantic and horrifying' Lucie Whitehouse. 'The most ingenious thriller you will read this year. I couldn't put it down' M. J. Arlidge. 'Intricately woven and heart-stoppingly believable, this has bestseller written all over it' Clare Mackintosh.
