The Photographer


As a photographer, Delta Dawn observes the seemingly perfect lives of New York City’s elite: snapping photos of their children’s birthday parties, transforming images of stiff hugs and tearstained faces into visions of pure joy, and creating moments these parents long for.


But when Delta is hired for Natalie Straub’s eleventh birthday, she finds herself wishing she wasn’t behind the lens but a part of the scene―in the Straub family’s gorgeous home and elegant life.


That’s when Delta puts her plan in place, by babysitting for Natalie; befriending her mother, Amelia; finding chances to listen to her father, Fritz. Soon she’s bathing in the master bathtub, drinking their expensive wine, and eyeing the beautifully finished garden apartment in their townhouse. It seems she can never get close enough, until she discovers that photos aren’t all she can manipulate.

Creepy and suspenseful!
A #bookstagrammadedoit read, after seeing it all over I decided to listen to the audio version. I had a hard time at first to really engage with the story, it felt slow for me, but I was intrigued by Delta’s character since the first chapter so I kept going, and I’m glad I did. The story was gripping and twisty, and by the end I just couldn’t stop listening.
A great and solid debut from this author and I’ll be looking to more books from this author in the future!

Thank you NetGalley and Macmillan Audio for this ALC.
