“Blade-sharp, whip-smart, and genuinely original — a thriller to refresh your faith in the genre, your belief that a story can still outpace and outsmart you.”–AJ Finn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in The Window
“Clever and surprising…The superb character-driven plot delivers an astonishing, believable jolt.”–Publishers Weekly (starred review)
A smart, witty, crackling novel of psychological suspense in which a girl from a hardscrabble small town meets a gorgeous Instagram influencer from the big city, with a murderous twist that will shock even the most savvy reader.
On a beautiful October morning in rural Maine, a homicide investigator from the state police pulls into the hard-luck town of Copper Falls. The local junkyard is burning, and the town pariah Lizzie Oullette is dead—with her husband, Dwayne, nowhere to be found. As scandal ripples through the community, Detective Ian Bird’s inquiries unexpectedly lead him away from small-town Maine to a swank city townhouse several hours south. Adrienne Richards, blonde and fabulous social media influencer and wife of a disgraced billionaire, had been renting Lizzie’s tiny lake house as a country getaway…even though Copper Falls is anything but a resort town.
As Adrienne’s connection to the case becomes clear, so too does her connection to Lizzie, who narrates their story from beyond the grave. Each woman is desperately lonely in her own way, and they navigate a relationship that cuts across class boundaries: transactional, complicated, and, finally, deadly. A Gone Girl for the gig economy, this is a story of privilege, identity, and cunning, as two devious women from opposite worlds discover the dangers of coveting someone else’s life.
“…both amusingly satirical and darkly bloody.”–The Washington Post
Dark, tart, and pacy as all get out,
No One Will Miss Her starts with the discovery of a young woman’s body—Lizzie, the pariah of Copper Falls, Maine—a poor, lower-class young woman looked down on both by the police at the murder scene and even by the man she married. Lizzie narrates from beyond the grave as Detective Ian Bird starts investigating everyone and everything, from Lizzie’s dad to her missing husband to what business Adrienne Richards—a trophy wife who’s been renting Lizzie’s lakeside house—had in a dump like Copper Falls. From there
No One Will Miss Her winds through issues of privilege, class, friendship, revenge, longing, and belonging, fitting in, and standing out…and there is one explosive twist that will shed light on the deadly connection between the two women and have readers wanting to re-read the book to catch what they missed the first time around.

“Countless thrillers have patterned themselves on
Gone Girl in the decade since Gillian Flynn transfixed readers and transformed the literary landscape; rare is the suspense novel that summons the same dark magic even as it twists itself into a bold new shape.
No One Will Miss Her is just such a book:
blade-sharp, whip-smart, and genuinely original — a thriller to refresh your faith in the genre, your belief that a story can still outpace and outsmart you.” — AJ Finn, #1
