'If you liked The Girl on the Train then I think you'll like this just as much, if not more' Scott Pack ****** Who is Alice Salmon? Student. Journalist. Daughter. Lover of late nights, hater of deadlines. That girl who drowned last year. Gone doesn't mean forgotten. Everyone's life leaves a trace behind. But it's never the whole story. "I will stand up and ask myself who I am. I do that a lot. I'll look in the mirror. Reassure myself, scare myself, like myself, hate myself. My name is Alice Salmon." When Alice Salmon died last year, the ripples from her tragic drowning could be felt in the news, on the internet, and in the hearts of those closest to her. However, the man who knows her best isn't family or a friend. His name is Professor Jeremy Cooke, an academic fixated on piecing together Alice's existence. Cooke knows that faithfully recreating Alice, through her diaries, text messages, and online presence, has become all-consuming. But he does not know how deep his search will take him into this shocking story of love, loss and obsession where everyone - including himself - has something to hide . . . ******** Praise for What She Left: 'What She Left is an extraordinary and bold creation' Laura Wilson, Guardian 'Every month brings another book billed the new Gone Girl, but we think we've found a winner' Marie Claire 'An absorbing, intricate and extremely original novel. It is also immensely clever and intriguing . . . What She Left is beautifully written and very emotionally involving. I hope that it garners all of the commercial and critical success it deserves' Claire Kendal, author of The Book of You 'Guaranteed to keep you guessing' Irish Independent 'A deliciously modern take on the psychological thriller ... a shifting, mesmerising, mysterious story ... very well-written and intelligently realised, occupying a territory half way between literary novel and thriller ... a memorable debut' Daily Telegraph 'An ingeniously original premise ... addictive' Sunday Express 'What a wonderful new voice. What a pleasure to read a thriller that's so ambitious and so full of emotion and suspense. Bravo!' Nicci French, author of The Memory Game and Blue Monday 'Strikingly modern' Sunday Times 'Intriguing and successful ... a crime thriller from a different angle, Richmond's accomplished debut encourages the reader to become the sleuth ... Genuinely chilling' Maxim Jakubowski 'This is how books should be written; full of trust and respect for the reader, allowing you to follow the darker paths and investigate yourself. This is a book of immense accomplishment, thrilling and clever - I absolutely devoured it, and I am left thinking simply that none of us are quite what we seem' Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner and Human Remains

Review:

If you liked The Girl on the Train then I think you'll like this just as much, if not more -- Scott Pack What She Left is an extraordinary and bold creation -- Laura Wilson Guardian Every month brings another book billed the new Gone Girl, but we think we've found a winner Marie Claire A deliciously modern take on the psychological thriller ... a shifting, mesmerising, mysterious story ... very well-written and intelligently realised, occupying a territory half way between literary novel and thriller ... a memorable debut Daily Telegraph An absorbing, intricate and extremely original novel. It is also immensely clever and intriguing. It kept making me recall how I'd felt watching Twin Peaks. The kind of immediate shock and grief I felt for Laura Palmer was what I felt for Alice. The process of piecing together the heroine's life is so absorbing. I mourned her more and more powerfully as the story went on. What She Left is beautifully written and very emotionally involving. I hope that it garners all of the commercial and critical success it deserves -- Claire Kendal, author of The Book of You There are a million psychological thrillers out there right now, but this one stands out ... Richmond keeps you guessing until the final pages in this compelling debut Glamour Strikingly modern Sunday Times A tight, clever, compelling story ... the reader must act as detective, rebuilding Alice Salmon from the digital footprint she leaves behind -- Paula Daly, author of Just What Kind of Mother Are You A clever, imaginative and entertaining attempt to immerse the whodunit in the world of social media -- Marcel Berlins, The Times An ingeniously original premise ... addictive Sunday Express What a wonderful new voice. What a pleasure to read a thriller that's so ambitious and so full of emotion and suspense. Bravo! -- Nicci French, author of The Memory Game and Blue Monday Intriguing and successful ... a crime thriller from a different angle, Richmond's accomplished debut encourages the reader to become the sleuth ... Genuinely chilling -- Maxim Jakubowski Likely to be one of 2015's most haunting and unforgettable debuts. Accident, murder or suicide? ... A shocking story of love, loss and obsession where everyone has something to hide. It is a great read lovereading.com Guaranteed to keep you guessing Irish Independent Brilliant, totally original, "can't-put-down-able" -- Judith O'Reilly, author of Wife in the North A classic whodunnit, given a modern twist Huffington Post An engaging thriller, full of suspense WeLoveThisBook.com An exceptional book ... a forensic jigsaw, an ingenious puzzle ... and a most promising debut Shots Highly original, fascinating and completely compelling. I was hooked on Alice's story from the very first page. A novel guaranteed to make you look back and question your social media footprint, and how accurately it tells your own story -- Dani Atkins, author of Fractured Taut, multi-layered ... A disturbing, intelligently written novel that's a psychological thriller and crime novel all rolled into one ... Richmond shatters every assumption with a series of brilliantly delivered curve balls ... some critics are already comparing it to Gone Girl. They're not wrong ... the writing is strong, the narrative pace never slackens, while the climax is absolutely blistering Surrey Life Intriguing ... presents enough believable suspects and motives to keep the reader gripped The Herald This is how books should be written; full of trust and respect for the reader, allowing you to follow the darker paths and investigate yourself. This is a book of immense accomplishment, thrilling and clever - I absolutely devoured it, and I am left thinking simply that none of us are quite what we seem -- Elizabeth Haynes, author of Into the Darkest Corner and Human Remains What She Left leads the reader down a dark and twisty path of suspense and intrigue. This gripping and stylishly written novel left me chilled to the bone and captivated me from beginning to end -- Heather Gudenkauf, author of The Weight of Silence WHAT SHE LEFT is bold and inventive storytelling. The reader becomes the investigator, sorting through diary entries, letters, tweets, and emails to discover the truth beneath the tales of an entire cast of potentially unreliable narrators. This is not only a clever thriller, but an insightful exploration of identity and the personae we create in the social-media era -- Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of The Ex
