Description

"A haunting and decidedly feminist literary thriller that explores mental illness, violence, and the nature of obsession."—Angie Kim, author of Miracle Creek

"What a clever, visceral thriller... It made me sad, angry, and fired up."—Araminta Hall, author of Imperfect Women

"Take Me Apart is an ambitious, intelligent, and ridiculously readable literary thriller that takes on art, sexism, violence, and mental illness—all set against an evocatively rendered Northern Californian landscape...—Rachel Khong, author of Goodbye Vitamin


TAKE ME APART is chilling, thought-provoking take on art, illness, and power, from a spellbinding new voice in psychological suspense.

Journalist Kate Aitken leaves New York for a fresh start in seaside Callinas with its stunning Californian vistas and stately homes. Kate begins working as an archivist for the enigmatic Theo, son of the famous photographer, Miranda Brand, who killed herself years earlier. Kate’s job is to sort through Miranda’s effects to find artwork and other images for exhibition and eventual sale. Kate knows Miranda’s story, and she knows how she died. That is until she finds Miranda’s journal and begins reading…

Enthralled in Miranda’s disturbing reminiscences of marriage, motherhood, and the pressure of her work, Kate starts to think perhaps the artist didn’t kill herself after all. As Kate finds herself falling for Theo, she sets her sights on uncovering just what happened to his famous mother. But what she finds threatens to upend more than the mystery of Miranda Brand…

TAKE ME APART is a gripping look at long-held secrets, destructive family dynamics, and the pressures of ambition. It’s about two women, both facing creative destruction at the hands of men, and the lengths they’re forced to go to in order to remain in one piece…
