Sera loves true crime podcasts. The mysteries become an unlikely comfort for her, and then an obsession.

So when Rachel, her favourite podcast host, goes missing from a small rural town in Northern California, Sera decides to act. She heads to the isolated ranch where Rachel disappeared, determined to discover what’s happened to her.

But the more Sera digs into this unfamiliar world, the more off things start to feel.

Because Rachel is not the first woman to vanish from the ranch, and she won’t be the last . . .

Rachel did try to warn her.

This twisted and riveting thriller is one that will keep you up late at night with suspense
CNN
Subtle, surprising, and genuinely scary, If I Disappear is so much more than a thriller; it's an unflinching exploration of our obsession with true crime and the darkness marbling our psyches. With sinewy prose and nuanced observations about the female experience, this debut marks a ferocious new voice in psychological suspense. I could not have loved this book more, and I can't wait to read more from Eliza Jane Brazier
Andrea Bartz, author of The Herd
Fans of true crime will devour this mystery

A fascinating, twisty, beautifully written tale with an unforgettable premise and an ending you won't see coming
Louise O'Neill, author of Asking For It
A skillful dissection of true-crime podcast culture and those obsessed with it, this new novel has more twists and fakeouts than an episode of Serial... If I Disappear throws into sharp relief how desensitized we can become when we treat real life like a game
Rolling Stone
I got serious Get Out vibes from this book . . . From ceilings crawling with cats to mannequin-filled dining rooms to hordes of misshapen dogs, If I Disappear is a gripping house of horrors you're powerless to escape.
