Product Details

Praise

“A book that skillfully examines toxic friendship at its most extreme . . . When the reckoning arrives, it shows that sometimes, we should fear our friends a lot more than strangers.”The New York Times Book Review

“A page-turning thriller about two best friends whose annual reunion trip goes wrong—one of them may or may not have ‘accidentally’ killed a fellow backpacker!—transforming their friendship as they once knew it.”Marie Claire

“Bartz takes the idea of a ‘frenemy’ to new heights. . . . Yet another expert vivisection of female modes of communication and competition.”Los Angeles Times
 
“Whether you’re planning far-flung summer travels or kicking it closer to home, you’re going to need a great beach read—and that’s where We Were Never Here comes in. . . . [A] twisty thriller.”PopSugar
 
“Bartz’s evocative descriptions of destinations as varied as Chile and Cambodia pulled me in immediately, but it was the way she ratcheted up the tension by dropping clues about the duo’s murky past that kept me rapt until the end.”Travel + Leisure

“Incredibly tense and atmospheric, We Were Never Here explores the nuances of memory, the secrets that bind a friendship—and those that threaten to tear them apart. Andrea Bartz delivers a sharp, unsettling thriller about power, obsession, and the inescapable grip of the past.”—Megan Miranda, New York Times bestselling author of All the Missing Girls and The Last House Guest

“A nail-biting, immersive whirl of a read . . . Brimming with mysterious twists, turns, and a frenemyship of the most chilling proportions, We Were Never Here is every woman’s worst nightmare—and every thriller-lover’s dream.”—Zakiya Dalila Harris, author of The Other Black Girl

“Andrea Bartz takes a friendship with boundary issues and adds an extra-special ingredient—the permanent, secret alliance of two people who have gotten away with murder. . . . An observant, suspenseful, and deeply scary novel.”—Steph Cha, author of Your House Will Pay

“Pulse-pounding with secrets, lies, and friends who trust too much.”CrimeReads

“This smartly written psychological thriller will leave you all tingly.”Reader’s Digest

“Bartz does a good job dramatizing the increasingly creepy relationship between the two women as the twisty plot builds. . . . Suspense fans will look forward to seeing more from this talented author.”Publishers Weekly

“A slow-burn thriller that gradually suffocates both the protagonist and the reader—in a good way . . . Bartz’s writing will keep readers on their toes.”Kirkus Reviews

“A terrific novel, blending the Hitchcockian elements with a touch of Patricia Highsmith.”Booklist (starred review)
