Summary

Don't trust him. It wasn't me. It couldn't have been me.

Evie and her uncle Jim have just moved to the small, insular town in New Zealand - a far cry from their hometown of Melbourne.

But Evie isn't her real name. And Jim isn't really her uncle.

Jim tells Evie she did something terrible back home, that he's hiding her to protect her. But Evie can't remember anything about that night - she doesn't know if he's telling the truth. As fragments of her memory starts to return, she starts to wonder if Jim is really her saviour...or her captor.

A riveting debut novel that fearlessly plumbs the darkest recesses of the mind, Call Me Evie explores the fragility of memory and the potential in all of us to hide the truth even from ourselves.

Critic reviews

"Literary suspense as dark and fresh as midnight in winter, with a merciless twist-of-the-knife finale. One of the most striking debuts I've read in years and years." (A. J. Finn, best-selling author of The Woman in the Window)

Gripping and perplexing!

I had been getting a little bored of so-called psychological thrillers, which left the reader under no illusions, with too transparent plots. This on the other hand, is in a different category. Just when I thought I had it figured out, it turns out that I didn’t. Throughout, I found myself being led to form changing conclusions on the plot path, not knowing who to trust. This book proves I’m not as clever as I thought I was!
