In the masterful follow-up to the New York Times bestseller All the Missing Girls—“think: Luckiest Girl Alive, The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl” (TheSkimm)—a journalist sets out to find a missing friend, a friend who may never have existed at all.

Confronted by a restraining order and the threat of a lawsuit, failed journalist Leah Stevens needs to get out of Boston when she runs into an old friend, Emmy Grey, who has just left a troubled relationship. Emmy proposes they move to rural Pennsylvania, where Leah can get a teaching position and both women can start again. But their new start is threatened when a woman with an eerie resemblance to Leah is assaulted by the lake, and Emmy disappears days later.

Determined to find Emmy, Leah cooperates with Kyle Donovan, a handsome young police officer on the case. As they investigate her friend’s life for clues, Leah begins to wonder: did she ever really know Emmy at all? With no friends, family, or a digital footprint, the police begin to suspect that there is no Emmy Grey. Soon Leah’s credibility is at stake, and she is forced to revisit her past: the article that ruined her career. To save herself, Leah must uncover the truth about Emmy Grey—and along the way, confront her old demons, find out who she can really trust, and clear her own name.

Everyone in this rural Pennsylvanian town has something to hide—including Leah herself. How do you uncover the truth when you are busy hiding your own?


  • The perfect stranger

    I found the writing style confusing, made it difficult to keep up with the story line ( although pretty early on you can figure out what the conclusion is going to be , it just made the journey to the end tiring). What was really a turn off for me was the absence of a single like-able character and the lack of development of the student characters.
  • A Tale of Suspenseful Mystery

    By Joni Ohio
    The Perfect Stranger is my first read by author, Megan Miranda. This is a story about secrets, lies, and past lives. I do love the author’s writing style. Megan Miranda is good at weaving a tale of suspenseful mystery. The cover art for this book was very cool. I felt the pace was good but throughout most of the book I was just confused. Maybe it was just me but I struggled to keep everything straight. I didn’t care for any of the characters which makes it hard for me to get into a story. Overall I thought the book was okay and I would read more written by the author. Three out of five stars for The Perfect Stranger!!! Thank you Megan Miranda, Simon & Schuster, and NetGalley for providing me with a digital copy of this book to read.
  • So good-

    By Coco Wags
    I read this book in a day and a half. I could have read it in one sitting if I had the time. Truly good writing, with a story that I really didn't want to put down or end. I constantly closed my eyes and tried to see the characters and their surroundings. It was so good I wanted to be there! Thank you Ms Miranda! I can't wait for your next book! I also enjoyed All The Missing Girls! You're a talented story teller!
  • Unputdownable

    Best I've read since Gone Girl. I love the way she writes...truly a wordsmith unlike so much contemporary fiction. I purposely slowed down my reading because I didn't want it to end. I actually took notes to be sure to follow the unfolding of the mystery along the way. One observation...setting is western PA where I didn't capture that...but only I would notice or care.
