In this compulsive, twist-filled debut, perfect for fans of Sharp Objects, a seventeen-year-old girl struggles to remember the role she played on the night her life changed forever...
Don't trust him. It wasn't me. It couldn't have been me.
Meet Evie, a young woman who has fled with her uncle to the isolated New Zealand beach town of Maketu. Jim says he's hiding her to protect her, that she did something terrible back home in Melbourne. Something Evie can't remember.
But Evie isn't her real name. And Jim isn't really her uncle.
In a house that creaks against the wind, Evie pieces together the events that led her here. And as her memories return, she starts to wonder if Jim is really her saviour . . . or her captor.
A riveting debut novel that fearlessly plumbs the darkest recesses of the mind, Call Me Evie explores the fragility of memory and the potential in all of us to hide the truth even from ourselves.
'Literary suspense as dark and fresh as midnight in winter, with a merciless twist-of-the-knife finale. One of the most striking debuts I've read in years and years' A. J. Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
