It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared without trace. Then a letter from her father arrives – ‘I need to talk to you. That girl. I saw that girl.’ Has her father’s dementia worsened, or has he really seen Corinne? Returning home, Nicolette must finally face what happened on that terrible night all those years ago.
Then, another young woman goes missing, almost to the day of the anniversary of when Corinne vanished. And like ten years ago, the whole town is a suspect.
Told backwards – Day 15 to Day 1 – Nicolette works to unravel the truth, revealing shocking secrets about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne.
Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls is a brilliantly plotted debut thriller that will leave you breathless.
Are you paying attention? You'll need to be; this thriller will test your brain with its reverse chronological structure, and it's a page-turner to boot.
In All the Missing Girls Megan Miranda leads readers back through the past of a small town, enfolding them in a slow, tense nightmare of suspicion, menace, and tangled motives. A twisty, compulsive read - I loved it.
Ruth Ware, author of In a Dark, Dark Wood
Extremely interesting...a novel that will probably be called Hitchcockian
New York Times, editor's pick
All the Missing Girls is a smart, suspenseful, and emotionally complex thriller. Told in reverse, this story will make you want to lock the doors, turn off the phone, and read until the last satisfying page.
Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of 'The Ex'
As original as it is addictive, this story puts a knot in your gut from the opening pages. Vividly rendered, psychologically complex, All The Missing Girls is, above all, totally gripping.
Tim Johnston, New York Times bestselling author of 'Descent'
All the Missing Girls is set to become one of the best books of 2016
Los Angeles Review of Books
Megan Miranda's utterly gripping and original All the Missing Girls keeps you off balance in the most perfect way. I was held hostage by the book from the first page to the stunning conclusion. This literally backward tale is a winner.
Lisa Lutz, author of 'The Passenger and How to Start a Fire'
A very unusual reading experience. Definitely worth a look.InStyle.co.uk
If You Liked Girl on a Train You’ll Love These…
The kind of book it seems like everyone has been hungry for since Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl and Paula Hawkins's Girl on a Train.
[An] impressive tale of suspense.
A thoroughly nail-biting narrative puzzle
I loved this book... the structure is amazing. A must read!
