9780143127369: Dear Daughter

'As soon as they processed my release Noah and I hit the ground running. A change of clothes. A wig. An inconspicuous sedan. We doubled back once, twice, then drove south when we were really headed east. In San Francisco we had a girl who looked like me board a plane to Hawaii. Oh, I thought I was so clever. But you probably already know that I'm not.' LA IT girl Janie Jenkins has it all. The looks, the brains, the connections. The criminal record. Ten years ago, in a trial that transfixed America, Janie was convicted of murdering her mother. Now she's been released on a technicality she's determined to unravel the mystery of her mother's last words, words that send her to a tiny town in the very back of beyond. But with the whole of America's media on her tail, convinced she's literally got away with murder, she has to do everything she can to throw her pursuers off the scent. She knows she really didn't like her mother. Could she have killed her?

Review:

"Gone Girl meets Mean Girls" Glamour "Dear Daughter has three of my favorite things in a book: a smart, damaged, unstoppable narrator with a slicing sense of humor; needle-sharp writing that brings characters and atmosphere leaping off the page; and a vivid, original plot full of satisfying twists. This is an all-nighter, and the best debut mystery I've read in a long time" -- Tana French "Dark, sharp and witty" -- Emma Hunt & Claire Frost Sun "A really gutsy, clever, energetic read, often unexpected, always entertaining. I loved Janie Jenkins's sassy voice and Elizabeth Little's too. In the world of crime novels, Dear Daughter is a breath of fresh air" -- Kate Atkinson "With a narrator so unreliable you suffer from constant seasickness, and the same fizzy sense of the media tracking the case that gave Gone Girl such edge, this is the thriller of the summer... This is so damn good that it's worth going on holiday with someone you hate, just so you can ignore them all week" -- Alexandra Heminsley The Debrief

Book Description:

THE book of the summer. From the publishers of The Never List comes a brilliantly sharp, clever and hugely enjoyable thriller. You might fight with your mother, Janie Jenkins might have killed hers.

I loved Janie Jenkins s sassy voice and Elizabeth Little s too. In the world of crime novels, Dear Daughter is a breath of fresh air. Kate Atkinson, New York Times bestselling author of Life After Life A sensational debut thriller featuring an unforgettable heroine who just might have murdered her mother Former It Girl Janie Jenkins is sly, stunning, and fresh out of prison. Ten years ago, at the height of her fame, she was incarcerated for the murder of her mother, a high-society beauty known for her good works and rich husbands. Now, released on a technicality, Janie makes herself over and goes undercover, determined to chase down the one lead she has on her mother s killer. The only problem? Janie doesn t know if she s the killer she s looking for. Janie makes her way to an isolated South Dakota town whose mysteries rival her own. Enlisting the help of some new friends (and the town s wary police chief), Janie follows a series of clues an old photograph, an abandoned house, a forgotten diary and begins to piece together her mother s seemingly improbable connection to the town. When new evidence from Janie s own past surfaces, she s forced to consider the possibility that she and her mother were more alike than either of them would ever have imagined. As she digs tantalizingly deeper, and as suspicious locals begin to see through her increasingly fragile facade, Janie discovers that even the sleepiest towns hide sinister secrets and will stop at nothing to guard them. On the run from the press, the police, and maybe even a murderer, Janie must choose between the anonymity she craves and the truth she so desperately needs. A gripping, electrifying debut novel with an ingenious and like-it-or-not sexy protagonist, Dear Daughter follows every twist and turn as Janie unravels the mystery of what happened the night her mother died whatever the cost.
