'A read-it-in-one-sitting thriller . . . Twisty and gripping but always relatable, Friend Request is the ultimate it-could-happen-to-you read' Erin Kelly

When Louise Williams receives a message from someone left long in the past, her heart nearly stops.

Maria Weston wants to be friends on Facebook.

Maria Weston has been missing for over twenty-five years. She was last seen the night of a school leavers' party, and the world believes her to be dead. Particularly Louise, who has lived her adult life with a terrible secret.

As Louise is forced to discover the truth about what really happened, the only thing she knows for sure is that Maria Weston disappeared that night, never to be heard from again, until now . . .

Praise for Friend Request

  • Friend Request is a strong psychological thriller that uses social media to it's advantage. - Librarian at Caringbah Library

  • Creepy and gritty! I've recommended it to fans of domestic noir and titles that deal with the intricacies of female friendships & bullying. - Bookseller at Berkelouw Books & BOOK FACE

  • What a great thriller this was! From beginning to end I was on the edge of my seat, it's very clever in the way it's an allegory of our current obsession with social media. The concept could've very easily become something cheap and tawdry but the finished product is sharp, slick and intelligent. Excellent! 5 stars. - Bookseller Dymocks Sydney
