I Want You Gone by Miranda Rijks – Book Review



The only obituary you never want to read – is your own.

Laura Swallow is dead. A life cut tragically short, says the newspaper obituary. But that’s a lie.

Estate agent Laura did not die in a car accident. She is alive and well.
At first, Laura thinks it’s a sick joke.

But multiple announcements of her death are followed by increasingly sinister real-life events. Already fragile, struggling to recover from a recent divorce, Laura is plunged into a living nightmare.

Who can she trust? Her new lover? Her clients and work colleagues? What about her ex-husband and his smug fiancée? Can Laura even rely on her best friends? And why is it that Laura’s present troubles are so tied up with her sister’s sudden death all those years ago?

But one thing Laura is sure of – someone out there wants her to suffer. Wants her gone.




Laura works as an Estate Agent and has been nominated for an award….but then her daughter, Mel, calls, upset as an obituary for Laura has been
posted on Facebook….

Reassured, Laura carries on……but then she meets the handsome Dr Ben Logan, he seems charming but her friend Anna tells her he’s no good, a womaniser and cheat. She also meets an old school mate, Eddy, at a house viewing and he makes a pass at her.

But then everything goes wrong, her boss receives a claim Laura was inappropriate at a viewing, intimate photo’s of her are sent to her boss, a death certificate for her is found and she suspects she may have been raped or assaulted by Ben, as she cannot remember anything after their date and she is suspended from work.

Anna is there to help support her, so is her friend Jenny…trying to make sense of everything, all while Laura is slowly falling apart…..then Mel goes missing!

Who has taken her? Who is trying to ruin Laura’s life and how is this linked to her sister Becky?

The writing is so good it keeps you wondering….to say I was on tenterhooks is an understatement in this marvellously fast paced, twisty and unsettling psychological thriller.
