Description
*  Winner of the Strand Critics Award for Best First Novel  *  Nominated for the Barry and Macavity Awards for Best First Novel    *  Longlisted for the CWA John Creasy (New Blood) Dagger Award "Quick-witted and fast-paced, this debut mystery should be a hit with Gone Girl fans." -- People magazine "This is an all-nighter . . . The best debut mystery I've read in a long time." --Tana French "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,  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.
