"Cleverly blending the real and imagined worlds until the reader can't differentiate the two, Knox has created a twisty, turny thriller that cuts through the heart of the modern true crime fascination, all while keeping us enraptured by it."??BuzzFeed

THE #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER!

For fans of true crime documentaries comes the chilling story of a university student's sudden disappearance, the woman who became obsessed with her case, and the crime writer who uncovered the truth about what happened...

What happens to all the girls who go missing?

In 2011, Zoe Nolan walked out of her dormitory in Manchester and was never seen or heard from again. Her case went cold. Her story was sad, certainly, but hardly sensational, crime writer Joseph Knox thought. He wouldn't have given her any more thought were it not for his friend, Evelyn Mitchell. Another writer struggling to come up with a new idea, Evelyn was wondering just what happens to all the girls who go missing. What happens to the Zoe Nolans of the world?

Evelyn began investigating herself, interviewing Zoe's family and friends, and emailing Joseph with chapters of the book she was writing with her findings. Uneasy with the corkscrew twists and turns, Joseph Knox embedded himself in the case, ultimately discovering a truth more tragic and shocking than he could have possibly imagined...

Just remember: Everything you read is fiction.

Praise for True Crime Story:

"Stunningly unique...For fans of stories with a little something extra, this book is set up like an oral history, complete with emails, newspaper clippings and photos that propel the story all the way to a shocking and satisfying conclusion."

??Newsweek

"Mr. Knox is a fantastic writer. His ambitious fourth novel satirises and celebrates the true-crime genre with glee. True Crime Story, by turns horrific and hilarious, is scandalously entertaining."

??The Times (UK)

"The gifted Joseph Knox continues his upwards trajectory with True Crime Story forging something original and innovative."

??Financial Times (UK)

"This is one of the most engaging cold-case novels I have read."

This book isn't a True Story.
Its original and written like its been well researched by the author Joseph Knox and Evelyn Mitchell who sends over lots of details to Joseph.
Book is written in interview format.

Plot of this book is.

A 19 year old Girl called Zoe Nolan twin sister of Kim goes missing from her Student accommodation in Manchester were she is studying.

Lots of her closest friends are interviewed including her Boyfriend Andrew, twin sister Kim, Liu her flatmate, Jai and another friend called Fintan. Police are completely baffled. They suspect Jai as he has been providing Zoe with drugs and are also suspicious of Andrew her boyfriend.
Her Parents quickly arrive on the scene, Her Father Robert is also a bit dodgy.
Police draw a blank.

Kim does her own investigating and it takes her to France.
A few red herrings later. Everyone blaming each other.
Jump 7 years later Zoe is still missing.
A sex tape is leaked to the Press of Andrew with Kim.
Kim tries to unravel the mystery it turns out that the person who leaked the tape was Fintan whose real name was Connor, (Evelyn who was conducting these interviews confronts him he kills her then kills himself)

Might never know what happened to Zoe.

Good book but I think it could have been a bit shorter. ( )

Thank you to Doubleday and Netgalley for the chance to read this advanced copy in return for an honest review.

Zoe Nolan is a young English girl who goes away to college in Manchester. She walks out of a party at her dorm and is never seen again. As the police investigate, they come to realize that her life wasn't exactly as it seemed.

Fast forward seven years later and an author named Evelyn Mitchell is attempting to tell Zoe's story in a bid to help solve the mystery and bring Zoe home. She begins to piece together the story of Zoe's disappearance through interviews with her friends, family, and the authorities in charge of the case. As she uncovers more information, she begins to receive odd calls and strangers appearing at her house without warning. As she proceeds with the writing she reaches out to an author she admires, Joseph Knox, for help and early reading of her book as it progresses.

There appears to be a new genre called true crime fiction. The author places him or herself in the story as a prominent character and frames the story as a true crime novel. There have been a few books that have pulled this off perfectly but sadly I do not feel this is one of them. I found the format a little less than fluid and there was far too much going on. As a reader, I like to be emotionally invested in the main characters but I felt no connection to these characters and wasn't excited to get to the end of the book. ( )

After making his debut with the wonderful Aidan Waits seires, Joseph Knox is back and better than ever with this very different, truly original contribution to the thriller genre.

It's been seven years since Zoe Nolan, a university student of nineteen seemingly vanished in to thin air, never to be seen again. Evelyn Mitchell, an aspiring writer, has taken a special interest in this still unsolved mystery and dives head first in to the case, determined to piece together what really happened that fateful day. Through interviews, correspodences and transcripts the lines of reality and fiction blur leaving the reader in desperate need of a reminder to not believe everything you read.

As a real true crime junkie, I jumped at the chance to read this story as soon as I came across it, and while I knew Knox was a talented author I had no idea what I was signing up for but I knew whatever it was, I was loving being drawn in to the twists and deception and genius that is True Crime Story. I must admit, I've been sitting on this one for a few days, not quite sure how to go about writing a review as it truly reads exactly like a true crime case, once simply cannot approach this book the same way they would a clearly fictional novel.

That being said, if true crime books, shows, and articles are your thing you're likely going to love this wonderful lie, even as you struggle in frustration to separate fact from fiction.

Highly recommend!

Thank you Netgalley, Sourcebooks Landmark, and the supremely talented Joseph Knox for granting me an advanced e-copy in exchange for my honest opinion. This is one I cannot wait to purchase as there's a space on my bookshelf made for this wonder! ( )

I liked this book. I am more than willing to try just about any audiobook that features a full cast. I just really enjoy the experience of listening to full cast bring a story to life. As soon as I heard about this book, I was more than ready to give it a listen and I found it to be quite entertaining.

This book explores the disappearance of Zoe Nolan. Writer Evelyn Mitchell is looking into what really happened to Zoe with the hopes of putting everything together for a book. She discusses her progress with her friend Joseph Know who is also a writer. We hear from a lot of key individuals that might hold some information as to what really happened to Zoe all those years earlier. Zoe was a new college student enjoying herself at school but there were some strange things that happened just before she disappeared.

I really think that this story is meant to be experienced in audio. I actually could not imagine reading the back and forth exchanges between the authors or other characters and enjoying them to the same extent that I did in audio. I think that each of the voice actors did a great job in bringing their character and this story to life. I think that the narrators were able to add a lot of excitement and emotion to the story through their narration.

I would recommend this book to others. I thought that the mystery of what happened to Zoe was very intriguing and I loved that the story kept me guessing until the very end. I would definitely read more of this author’s work in the future.

I received a review copy of this audiobook from Recorded Books. ( )
