A year ago, Alice’s boyfriend, Steve, left her for her best friend, Brooke. Now, Brooke is missing, and Steve is in jail. Alice teams up with her tutor, Iris, to prove Steve’s innocence, but the closer they get to solving the crime, the closer they get to danger.

Dudeja, Amoss, and Linneman artfully narrate the three intertwined narratives giving each character a distinct voice. The narrators bring the story to life and create a palpable tension as the listener follows the twists and turns of Alice and Iris’s journey.  The audiobook is a fitting homage to Agatha Christie’s classic mysteries and is perfect for fans of A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson or Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson.

The Selected Lists teams read throughout the year in search of the best titles published in their respective categories. Once a book is suggested (either internally or through the title suggestion form), it must pass through a review process to be designated an official nomination. 

Each week, the teams feature a review of one of the officially nominated titles. Additional titles to receive this designation are listed as well. At year’s end, the team will curate a final list from all nominated titles and select a Top Ten.
