Summer in Paris. Leah, bored of tedious dead-end jobs, is intrigued to spot a job advert posted by the famous author Michael Young: ‘Writer Seeks Assistant’.

After an unconventional interview, Michael invites Leah to spend summer in the south of France with his family. But as she begins her work transcribing his diaries of his debauched youth in 1960s Soho, the lines of past and present, truth and deceit, begin to blur, and Leah has to question what it is that Michael really sees in her.

A novel that challenges us to both question what we see, and what others see in us.

Reviews

A sultry, summery book . . . devastatingly witty, compulsively readable . . . like Sally Rooney meeting Martin Amis in Paris
Francine Toon, author of PINE
Voyeur is a salty, sultry exploration of desire and aspiration. It fractures fragile masculinity and illuminates the traces of the past in the present. It is wry, funny and wild, yet warns us of the dangers of a singular narrative and shows us the importance of being the protagonist of your own story
Jessica Andrews, author of SALTWATER
Unsettling, addictive, and razor-sharp, Francesca Reece is a devastatingly compelling new voice in literary fiction
Louise O'Neill

Elle 'Dazzling Debuts'
If your hopes of heading to Provence this summer are looking in jeopardy, Francesca Reece's sizzling summer debut is a one way ticket to the South of France . . . As the title suggests, it's a story about the ways men and women watch one another, and the things we project onto people when we're only seeing what we want to see
Esquire
From Paris to the South of France, with narrative strands that wind beautifully through London's Soho and the hot streets of Athens, Voyeur seems as though it may be your standard airport novel: scandals in sunny climes. But Francesca Reece's stirring debut is much more than the sum of its wanderlust parts
Harper's Bazaar
Tense and sultry... addictive... With a complicated love triangle, glamorous settings, a cast of enigmatic characters and a mystery that will keep you guessing right until the end, it's a genuinely thrilling summer holiday read
