THE YEAR’S MOST HAUNTING AND UNFORGETTABLE DEBUT.
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 Dr 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 . . .
