Publisher's Summary

"Narrator Sophie Amoss creates a menacing dark drama that will grab listeners right away. She enhances the story with superb timing and a delicious Southern drawl" (AudioFile Magazine on The Echo Killing)

From Christi Daugherty, author of The Echo Killing, comes another pulse-pounding suspenseful thriller featuring crime reporter Harper McClain. 

For a woman, being killed by someone who claims to love her is the most ordinary murder of all. 

With its antebellum houses and ancient oak trees draped in a veil of Spanish moss, Savannah’s graceful downtown is famous around the world. When a woman is killed in the heart of that affluent district, the shock is felt throughout the city. But for crime reporter Harper McClain, this story is personal. The corpse has a familiar face.  

Only 24 years old, Naomi Scott was just getting started. A law student, tending bar to make ends meet, she wanted to change the world. Instead, her life ended in the dead of night at the hands of an unseen gunman. 

There are no witnesses to the crime. The police have three suspects: Scott’s boyfriend, who has a criminal past he claims he’s put behind him, her boss, who stalked another young bartender two years ago, and the district attorney’s son, whom Naomi dated until their relationship ended in acrimony. All three men claim to love her. Could one of them be her killer?  

With the whole city demanding answers, Harper unravels a tangled story of obsession and jealousy. But the pressures on her go beyond the murder. The newspaper is facing more layoffs. Her boss fears both their jobs are on the line. And Harper begins to realize that someone is watching her every move. Someone familiar and very dangerous.  

Someone who told her to run before it’s too late....

Humorous Thriller

The narrator does an excellent job switching characters without being overly theatrical. The story is based in Georgia so the accent is just right. The overall story is captivating with touches of humor. I enjoy The Harper McClain series.
