Take Me Apart

ebook

"My favorite debut crime novel of 2020." —Sarah Weinman, The Crime Lady
*
"A West Coast art-world satire, an erotic romance and a descent into madness [with a] gratifying conclusion." —Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal
*
"Dark and poetic . . . an outstanding debut that will satisfy fans of crime novels, thrillers, and mysteries." —Gabino Iglesias, Criminal Element

When the famed photographer Miranda Brand died mysteriously at the height of her career, it sent shock waves through Callinas, California. Decades later, old wounds are reopened when her son Theo hires the ex-journalist Kate Aitken to archive his mother's work and personal effects.
As Kate sorts through the vast maze of material and contends with the vicious rumors and shocking details of Miranda's private life, she pieces together a portrait of a vibrant artist buckling under the pressures of ambition, motherhood, and marriage. But Kate has secrets of her own, including a growing attraction to the enigmatic Theo, and when she stumbles across Miranda's diary, her curiosity spirals into a dangerous obsession.
A seductive, twisting tale of psychological suspense, Take Me Apart draws readers into the lives of two darkly magnetic young women pinned down by secrets and lies. Sara Sligar's electrifying debut is a chilling, thought-provoking take on art, illness, and power, from a spellbinding new voice in literary suspense.
