"The brand new edge-of-your-seat thriller from the author of the smash hit bestseller The Woman in the Window.

""I’ll be dead in three months. Come tell my story.""

This is the chilling invitation from Sebastian Trapp, renowned mystery novelist, to his long-time correspondent Nicky Hunter, an expert in detective fiction. Welcomed into his lavish San Francisco mansion, Nicky begins to unravel Trapp’s life story under the watchful eyes of his enigmatic wife and plainspoken daughter.

But Sebastian Trapp is a mystery himself. And maybe – probably – a murderer.

Two decades ago, his first wife and son vanished, the case never solved. Is the master of mystery playing a deadly game? If so, who will be the loser?

And when a body surfaces in the family's garden, they all realize the past isn't buried – it's waiting.

Reviews for End of Story

‘Elegant, absorbing, full of Hitchcockian menace. Once again Finn reinvents the genre in spectacular style’ Lucy Foley ‘A. J. Finn’s new novel is beautiful, intense, beguiling. I was mesmerized by End of Story’ Lisa Jewell ‘Fans of detective fiction will be thrilled by Finn’s latest!’ Shari Lapena 'End of Story is a masterpiece. Brilliantly plotted by a master craftsman who parries words like an Olympian fencer. This is a book for smart people and I must admit that I did not guess the crux of the matter until the same millisecond it was revealed. Normally I know by page 5. It is a vastly superior thriller leaving this reader on the edge of her seat, sleepless and drained, yet charged by the pull of the story to keep reading. A relentless roller coaster ride around the pacific coast drawn so vividly that I was immersed in the story immediately. I absolutely loved it.' Liz Nugent ‘Incisive, absorbing, stylish, and sparkling with quick wit, End of Story is a mystery-lover’s delight. Brimming with both allusions and illusions, this novel is an entrancing bit of literary magic and a love letter to the classic detective genre. Just when you think you’ve got everything figured out, Finn reminds you something so utterly essential about a truly masterful mystery— that the end is just the beginning’ Nita Prose ‘A.J. Finn has done it again. End of Story is a dark, beautifully constructed thriller about a familiy and its secrets where nobody is quite what they seem. A story that draws you in, takes your breath away and, in the end, breaks your heart’ Nicci French 'A thrillingly Gothic golden age mystery to lose yourself in’ Jenny Colgan
