Publisher's Summary

When Alice Salmon died last year, the ripples were felt in the news, on the Internet, and in the hearts of those who knew her best.
But the person who knows her most intimately isn't family or a friend. Professor Jeremy Cooke is an academic whose life has become about piecing together Alice's existence in all its flawed and truthful reality.
For Cooke, faithfully recreating Alice's life - through her diaries, emails, and anything using her voice - is all consuming. He does not know how deep his search will take him or the shocking nature of what he will uncover.

Nothing of note

A story peopled by unlikeable characters including the tired cliché of a university professor who cheats on his wife with a younger woman. Alice comes across as an irritating petulant teenager and I really couldn’t bring myself to care for her. This is supposed to be based on the characters’ emails and Internet musings but I don’t believe they would really write in such a detailed and introspective way. A good idea perhaps, but it just didn't work for me.

A gripping 'of our time' read

If you could sum up What She Left in three words, what would they be?

Enthralling, tantalising and intelligent

Any additional comments?

A genuinely enthralling listen that is intelligently written and told with conviction by its cast. It builds on a fascinating premise to deliver a novel that is a fit for our time. Anyone who is a recent graduate, is an avid user of social media and wants a enticing day job that gives you a true sense of satisfaction will enjoy What She Left. We can all draw parallels with Alice and we all know a Jeremy, or at least a pedant.
