Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.
This was more like a chick lit kind of a book initially where Kate Collins had been ghosted by Scott after she left her home and job and traveled many miles to live with him. All she found was a mobile phone and an empty house. And she needed answers. FAST. But then strange messages appeared on Scott’s phone and scratches on the door. What was happening?
My first book by Jason Arnopp, I too wanted to know the reason why Kate had been ghosted on such a dreadful manner. Having undergone the same myself, I wanted vengeance via the story. Kate was difficult to connect to, her obsession with social media went a bit too far.
I liked how the author insidiously introduced the eerie incidents happening with Kate. The mystery and ghostly sightings caused my thriller-y senses to tingle. Written in Kate’s POV, this was one winding road which dealt with social media obsession along with mystery of the missing boyfriend.
BUT WAIT!! The ending was so unexpected and freaking scary that I don’t think I breathed even once while reading the last couple of chapters. I loved it. Wow!!
A dialogue in the book…
Scott’s dead. You saw his ghost. His face, it had that vulnerable Tinder look.
I kept wondering what would a Tinder look, look like! Anybody?
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Jason Arnopp – author of acclaimed cult hit The Last Days of Jack Sparks – returns with a razor-sharp thriller for a social-media obsessed world. Prepare to never look at your phone the same way again . . .
Kate Collins has been ghosted.
She was supposed to be moving in with her new boyfriend Scott, but all she finds after relocating to Brighton is an empty apartment. Scott has vanished. His possessions have all disappeared.
Except for his mobile phone.
Kate knows she shouldn’t hack into Scott’s phone. She shouldn’t look at his Tinder, his calls, his social media. But she can’t quite help herself.
That’s when the trouble starts. Strange, whispering phone calls from numbers she doesn’t recognise. Scratch marks on the walls that she can’t explain. And the growing feeling that she’s being watched.
Kate refuses to leave the apartment – she’s not going anywhere until she’s discovered what happened to Scott. But the deeper she dives into Scott’s digital history the more Kate realises just how little she really knows about the man she loves.
