Publisher's Summary

Fame and obsession collide in this darkly twisted novel from an incredible new voice in suspense.

I've been watched all my life. I'm used to being stared at. Observed. Followed.

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 15 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.

Critic Reviews

"[A] campy debut thriller...with [a] twisty and twisted ending." (Kirkus Reviews)

"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." (Booklist)

"A devastating novel that evokes Ingmar Bergman and David Lynch....This disturbing, surrealistic thriller will keep readers spellbound." (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

A Unfortunate Misfire

Watch the Girls has a great premise and I found the first third of the book compelling but the intriguing mystery at the center of the story gave way pretty quickly to predictable reveals, painfully written sex scenes and a "startling" ending that felt both preposterous and unsatisfactory. I wish I had liked this more but it just wasn't for me.

Khristine Hvam gives her usual outstanding performance.

Confusing <br />

I struggled to finish book. I found the first half of the book quite boring and slow.

Totally predictable

I knew immediately who was responsible for the missing girls and the attempt by the author to derail the reader was miserable. The protagonist, if you can call her that, is completely unlikable. There are a few redeeming factors, none of which I will go into, but that’s why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1. Narration wasn’t the best either, totally over-read.
