Product Details


Praise for The Tip Line:
“Exceptional debut . . . sharply honed prose . . . [For] fans of Patricia Highsmith’s Ripley novels.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Tip Line is a stunning blend of true crime and fiction. Both funny and disturbing, with complex characters and eye-popping twists. Surprising to the very end.” 
—Samantha Downing, internationally bestselling author of For Your Own Good

The Tip Line is an unsettling, bold, and beautifully written debut that explores one woman’s quest for Mr. Right against the backdrop of an unthinkable crime, asking us to consider the fraught relationships between trust and denial, love and complicity. Propulsive and whip-smart with an ending that made me gasp. Vanessa Cuti is an incredible talent.”
—Caitlin Mullen, award-winning author of Please See Us

“An intimate and gripping tale that plunges you into a reimagining of the real-life case of the Gilgo Beach Murders. True crime fans won’t want to miss The Tip Line.”
—Mindy Carlson, author of Her Dying Day

“A slow-burning and clever reimagining of the Gilgo beach murders, I was riveted by The Tip Line and Virginia’s twisting story. With a full cast of suspicious characters and an ending I couldn’t stop thinking about, true crime fans will devour this one.” 
—Kali White, author of The Monsters We Make

“A young woman who claims she only wants to find a husband soon admits, ‘Maybe I wanted to see what I was capable of.’ This taut erotic thriller tests a woman’s trust of a man she is in thrall to.  Cinematic, visceral, and truly unnerving, The Tip Line conjures increasingly difficult feats of denial in the service of love.”
— Amy Hempel, author of Sing to It

“A psychological thriller written on the edge of a scalpel through one woman’s mind. You won’t be able to put down this reimagining of the Gilgo Beach murders. I’ve found my new favorite author in Vanessa Cuti.”
—Sara Herchenroether, author of The Night Flowers
