By Alexandra Andrews

April 14, 2021

Florence Darrow wants to be a writer.  Correction: Florence Darrow is GOING to be a writer.  Fired from her first proper job in publishing, she jumps at the chance to be an assistant to the highly secretive, wildly successful novelist known by the pen name Maud Dixon.  The arrangement requires discretion but offers Florence the chance to watch a bestselling writer at close range.  Before long, the pair are on a research trip to Morocco, the setting of Dixon’s long-awaited second book.  Strolls through the souk, delicious food, red sunsets and long, whisky-filled evening discussions: the whole package feels idyllic…until Florence wakes up in a hospital, with no memory of the car crash she barely survived.  How did it happen – and where is Maud Dixon, who was in the car with her?  But wait, if Maud is no longer around, maybe Florence can make her mark as a writer after all…
