Description

“Riveting”—Entertainment Weekly

From the author of Good as Gone comes a brilliant and timely thriller: Strangers on a Train by way of Thelma and Louise.

 
Dana Diaz is an aspiring stand‑up comedian—a woman in a man’s world. When she meets a tough computer programmer named Amanda Dorn, the two bond over their struggles in boys’ club professions. Dana confides that she’s recently been harassed and assaulted while in L.A., and Amanda comes up with a plan: they should go after each other’s assailants, Strangers on a Train–style. But Dana finds that revenge, however sweet, draws her into a more complicated series of betrayals. Soon her distrust turns to paranoia, encompassing strangers, friends—and even herself. At what cost will she get her vengeance? Who will end up getting hurt? And when it’s all over, will there be anyone left to trust?

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 12, 2018 – The life of struggling comedian Dana Diaz, the narrator of this provocative tale of psychological suspense from Gentry (Good as Gone), changes when she meets Amanda Dorn in an Austin, Tex., comedy club. Dana isn't good at being friends with women, but Amanda is different, and soon Dana opens up about the harassment and assault she's faced as a comedian. Amanda is no stranger to harassment. A former computer programmer in a male-dominated tech company, she's had issues of her own. Tired of the humiliation and intimidation, they form a pact to systematically teach each of their aggressors a lesson, hoping their efforts will save other women. The plan seems to be working, until Dana nearly kills someone. Confused and unsure whom she can trust including herself Dana flees to L.A., back to her life before Austin. But Amanda isn't done yet. She has another name on her list, and she's determined that Dana will fulfill her part of the bargain at all costs. Gentry ably explores issues of gender, violence, and rage, though the too pat ending comes as a letdown.
