    • Abstract:
      Summary: "I've been watched all my life. I'm used to being stared at. Observed. Followed. Fame and obsession collide in this darkly twisted novel from an incredible new voice in suspense. SOMEONE IS WATCHING Washed up teen star Liv Hendricks quit acting after her beloved younger sister inexplicably disappeared following a Hollywood party gone wrong. Liv barely escaped with her life, and her sister was never heard from again. But all this time, someone's been waiting patiently to finish what was started... FOUR MISSING GIRLS Now fifteen years later, broke and desperate, Liv is forced to return to the spotlight. She crowdfunds a webseries in which she'll pose as a real-life private detective--a nod to the show she starred on as a teen. When a mysterious donor challenges her to investigate a series of disappearances outside a town made famous by the horror movies filmed there, Liv has no choice but to accept. FOLLOW THE WHITE WOLF Liv is given a cryptic first clue: Follow the white wolf. And now a darker game is about to begin. Through social media, someone is leaving breadcrumbs to follow. As Liv makes increasingly disturbing discoveries, her show explodes in popularity. A rapt internet audience is eager to watch it all--perhaps even at the cost of Liv's own life... Filled with provocative twists and turns as the line between plot and reality blurs in this inventive tour-de-force from breakout writer Jennifer Wolfe"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2018 June #1

Liv Hendricks is a former child star trying to resurrect her career by starring in a mystery-investigation reality show. The show's cases are fake, and she's not too disappointed to be fired for being too honest in a drunken interview. The role of a lifetime then falls into her lap when she's hired to crack the puzzle of young women who have gone missing on an eerie, dark road and who have become part of the lore surrounding a cult filmmaker's wolf-filled creations. Debut author Wolfe has created a compelling, sympathetic character in Liv, a scared, lonely woman who acts jaded and tough but grieves over a missing sister of her own. The author takes readers on a psychologically dark ride through a twisted underworld of fame and desperation, a journey that will keep readers guessing until the shocking ending. Give this to patrons looking for something to follow Fred Van Lente's Ten Dead Comedians (2017), which also centers on Hollywood's malcontents. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2018 May #4

YA author Wolfe (as Jennifer Bosworth) makes her adult debut with a devastating novel that evokes Ingmar Bergman and David Lynch. In 2003, 17-year-old TV star Olivia Hill barely survives a car crash and the younger of her two sisters, 14-year-old Miranda, disappears. Flash forward to 2018. Olivia, rechristened as Liv Hendricks, finds herself at another crossroads after a blogger's surreptitiously recorded video—in which she drunkenly vents about exploitation of women in Hollywood—goes viral and gets her fired from her acting gig on a Scooby-Doo knockoff reality TV show. Her response: crowdfunding a web series in which she'll investigate real-life mysteries. That's what brings her to Stone's Throw, Calif., where she connects with legendary horror film director Jonas Kron, her biggest backer, who insists that she try to figure out what became of four young women who vanished from an area of the picturesque mountain village known as Dark Road. Then Gemma, Liv's overbearing manager and perennially jealous sister, shows up—and disappears. Despite some plot reveals that stretch credulity, this disturbing, surrealistic thriller will keep readers spellbound. Agent: Doug Stewart, Sterling Lord Literistic. (July)
