Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Exhibit Alexandra by Natasha Bell, read by Katharine McEwan.
Alexandra Southwood is missing. Her husband is beside himself, or at least he appears to be. She has vanished into thin air; the only traces left are her bloodied clothes by the riverside and her picture in the paper. It doesn't take long before the police are searching for a body.
But we know that she is alive. That she is being kept somewhere far away from her family. That perhaps her perfect life as a wife and mother wasn't quite what it seemed.
Be warned: this isn't another missing woman thriller. This is something far more shocking...
So refreshing. A thriller, a page-turner, thoughtful and thought-provoking
Sterling work . . . an astutely written, complex debut . . . even seasoned genre aficionados will be surprised . . . an assured outing
Cunning . . . will have your brain working in overdrive as you try to second guess Natasha Bell's ingenious plot and as you reflect on her thought-provoking observations on art, love and family life
2018's most gripping psychological thriller
Gripping, intriguing and incredibly satisfying, this book confounds your expectations and keeps you guessing to the end
An intelligent, taut thriller which was beautifully written and compelling. I loved how the author played with the whole theme of life imitating art. Full of twists and turns I couldn't put it down. I thought the ending was perfect!
A moody, gut-wrenching tale of domestic ennui, feminism, and identity, recommended for literary-thriller devotees and book groups
Although her account indicates that she is being held captive, this may be just another faked element in a text fascinatingly permeated by ambiguity . . . the entire novel could be an art project
I adored Exhibit Alexandra. I thought it was a smart, original page turner which really brought something different to the thriller genre. It kept me up half the night!
Beautifully insidious, a novel that outwits expectation at every turn
