The Housemate Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Dubbed the Housemate Homicide, it's a mystery that has baffled Australians for almost a decade. Melbourne-based journalist Olive Groves worked on the story as a junior reporter and became obsessed by the case. Now, nine years later, the missing housemate turns up dead on a remote property. Olive is once again assigned to the story; this time reluctantly paired with precocious millennial podcaster Cooper Ng. As Oli and Cooper unearth new facts about the three housemates, a dark web of secrets is uncovered. The revelations catapult Oli back to the death of the first housemate, forcing her to confront past traumas and insecurities that have risen to the surface again.
What really happened between the three housemates that night? Will Oli's relentless search for the murderer put her new family in danger? And could her suspicion that the truth lies closer to home threaten her happiness and even her sanity?
A riveting, provocative thriller from the best-selling author of The Dark Lake, Into the Night and Where the Dead Go.

Regardless of the believability of the plot, Bailey does an extremely good job of showing us how journalists work. It says something about our political cynicism that stories of extreme corruption at high levels have us barely turning a hair. Personally, I think the book would have worked just as well if it hadn’t been so extensive. The interplay between police and media is also well done. Where Bailey shines in comparison with other authors is in her creation of complex characters: there’s no problem believing in them as real people. Oli’s fiancé, for example, comes across as showing a few signs of incipient abusiveness. There is a big denouement, which would play well were this a movie. There’s only one point where I thought Oli’s deductions were a forced plot linkage. All In all, Bailey is clearly one of our better thriller writers and in this long book there’s plenty to get your teeth into.
Well worth a read
