Publisher's Summary

When a murder echoing a 15-year-old cold case rocks the Southern town of Savannah, crime reporter Harper McClain risks everything to find the identity of this calculated killer in Christi Daugherty's new audiobook, The Echo Killing.

A city of antebellum architecture, picturesque parks, and cobblestone streets, Savannah moves at a graceful pace. But for Harper McClain, the timeless beauty and culture that distinguishes her home’s Southern heritage vanishes during the dark and dangerous nights. She wouldn’t have it any other way. Not even finding her mother brutally murdered in their home when she was 12 has made her love Savannah any less. 

Her mother’s killer was never found, and that unsolved murder left Harper with an obsession that drove her to become one of the best crime reporters in the state of Georgia. She spends her nights with the police, searching for criminals. Her latest investigation takes her to the scene of a homicide where the details are hauntingly familiar: a young girl being led from the scene by a detective, a female victim naked and stabbed multiple times in the kitchen, and no traces of any evidence pointing toward a suspect. 

Harper has seen all of this before in her own life. The similarities between the murder of Marie Whitney and her own mother’s death lead her to believe they’re both victims of the same killer. At last, she has the chance to find the murderer who’s eluded justice for 15 years and make sure another little girl isn’t forever haunted by a senseless act of violence - even if it puts Harper in the killer’s crosshairs....

Critic Reviews

"Fans of Hank Phillippi Ryan and Michael Connelly will thoroughly enjoy this new voice in crime fiction." (Library Journal)

"Daugherty delivers an insider's view of journalism, from the adrenaline rush of covering a major story to the drudgery of delving into the background behind a story." (Associated Press)

"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)

Wow! Great Book

I have never read anything by this author and frankly was a little hesitate to purchase this book. I find few authors do strong female lead characters well. Most make them overly emotional or hard as steel; caricatures of real women. The female lead had a difficult childhood, but has made a place for herself as an adult. When faced with issues from her past she reacts as I believe most women would, with doubts and concerns, but also strenght. While I figured out the ending about 3/4's into the story, I enjoyed it to completion. Overall, I liked the book and will definitely purchase another by this author.

Can’t wait for this book series to continue!

This book had it all, great narration, wonderful story that kept you hanging to the very end and kept me hooked the entire read/listen. I highly recommend this book, this is what a mystery/thriller should be like. Her main character has just the right amount of spunk and vulnerability. Yay, a new series to listen to!

One of the weaker mysteries I've read

The narrator was a bit too flat for me which made I think impacted the story some for me. The story was also predictable and the ending left far too many loose ends. With an ending like that it makes the rest of the book feel like a waste of time.

Excellent debut novel

Christi Daugherty is a name I will be very familiar with after reading this book and so will everyone else. She leaves the reader anticipating the next book in this series. Really cannot wait to see what’s next from her.

Good read overall.

Overall storyline was a bit predictable. Story did have some mystery, but no ending for them. I will try her next book hoping she finishes where she left off.

I kept putting this back in my wish list I finally used my credit for it....so worth it! The narrator was one of the best I’ve heard, story was excellent, characters were multi dimensional. I’m looking forward to many more from this author WITH this narrator!

Good but I don’t know

This book was interesting to me. I was excited to read it but really felt like it went on and on. I believe this book could have been just as good without the little extras that had nothing to do with the story. Seems like there might be another book or at least open for a series so I wait to see what’s happens.
