Book Summary

PLAY
Andrew, the manager of Shanamore Holiday Cottages, watches his only guest via a hidden camera in her room.

One night the unthinkable happens: a shadowy figure emerges on-screen, kills her, and destroys the camera. But who is the murderer? How did they know about the camera? And how will Andrew live with himself?

PAUSE
Natalie wishes she'd stayed at home as soon as she arrives in the wintry isolation of Shanamore. There's something creepy about the manager. She wants to leave, but she can't--not until she's found what she's looking for

REWIND
Psycho meets Fatal Attraction in this explosive story about a murder caught on camera. You've already missed the start. To get the full picture you must rewind the tape and play it through to the end, no matter how shocking.

Media Reviews

"Astute readers will have fun picking up clues as to what's really going on. Fans of expertly crafted whodunits will be rewarded." - Publishers Weekly

"Readers who enjoy books by Gillian Flynn and Ruth Ware, as well as the earlier thrillers by award-winning Irish author Howard (Distress Signals; The Liar's Girl) will find this a perfect vacation read; full of twists and turns and just the right touch of creepiness. A must for mystery and thriller collections." - Library Journal

"Catherine Ryan Howard is a gift to crime writing. Her characters are credible, her stories are original, and her plotting is ingenious. Every book is a treat to look forward to." - Liz Nugent, bestselling author of Unraveling Oliver and Skin Deep

"There's no hitting stop in this cleverly crafted thriller. With its claustrophobic, isolated setting and superb cast of characters, Rewind will keep you utterly absorbed until the last tense turn of the page. Compelling and brilliant. The perfect read for any crime-fiction fan." - Olivia Kiernan, author of The Killer in Me

"Terrific. A cast of brilliantly drawn characters, whip-smart dialogue, and the thrill of the remote Irish setting kept me hooked from the first page to the last." - Gilly Macmillan, New York Times bestselling author of What She Knew

"Rewind is brilliant: an expertly constructed thriller that plays on our worst fears about modern life. Catherine Ryan Howard has a genius for creating memorable and convincing characters--some appealing, some horrifying--and the plot moves back and forth through their lives like a pendulum counting down to the explosive ending." - Jane Casey, author of Let the Dead Speak
