Reviews

"A riveting, seductive read about the secret, protected places within even the most intimate relationships . . . Janelle Brown has written a novel that provokes thought as her story twists and turns. I loved it."--Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Water for Elephants
"Tantalizing and twisty, Watch Me Disappear is both a spider's web of a thriller and a moving exploration of the deeper mysteries of marriage and family. You won't be able to put it down, but you won't forget it either."--Megan Abbott, author of You Will Know Me
"Watch Me Disappear is at once a riveting page-turner and a thoughtful meditation on what it means to know other people--and ourselves. Be careful: Once you start Janelle Brown's expertly crafted and wonderfully mysterious novel, you won't be able to stop."--Edan Lepucki, New York Times bestselling author of Woman No. 17 and California
"I devoured Watch Me Disappear in one sitting. In this poignant and captivating story of a missing woman and the family she left behind, Brown deftly peels away the layers of a loving marriage to reveal a haunting mystery and a devastating truth: that no matter how much you love someone, you can never truly know them."--Laura McHugh, author of The Weight of Blood and Arrowood
"The plot is gripping enough: A woman's disappearance leaves a daughter and husband in a limbo that moves rapidly into true mystery, with ever-widening gaps between acceptance and doubt, memory and history, truth and lies--all very slippery and treacherous and thrilling. But the real magic of Watch Me Disappear is Brown's gift for evoking familial love in all its mad permutations--and the more intensely for the high stakes of what has been taken, and what is yet to be found. This is a story you simply don't want to end--but then, lord, what an ending!"--Tim Johnston, author of Descent
"Clever and compelling, this ricocheting tale reveals that, even in the closest families, how little we know of the ones we love, and how our own secrets are often the hardest to bear, can cost us dearly in the end."--Lisa Gardner, author of Right Behind You
